Diwali 2015 with Satish Magar of Magarpatta City & Nanded City Pune

Festival of Books:

Capital in the Twenty-First Century. The Modi Effect. Working Out Of The Box. Diwali Gift from Mr. Satish Magar

Every Diwali, Mr. Satish Magar of Magarpatta City & Nanded City Pune gives me most precious gift. Gift of books. Thought provoking books on the important current topics. Written by accomplished writers. This Diwali, Satish Magar gave 3 books. The Modi Effect. Working Out Of The Box. Capital in the Twenty-First Century.

Capital in the Twenty-First Century is written by Thomas Piketty, professor at the Paris School of Economics, & translated in English by Arthur Goldhammer. It's Financial Times & McKinsey Business Book of the Year.

As per the book jacket, Piketty (in Capital in the Twenty-First Century) shows that modern economic growth and the diffusion of knowledge have allowed us to avoid inequalities on the apocalyptic scale predicted by Karl Marx. But we have not modified the deep structures of capital and inequality as much as we thought in the optimistic decades following World War II. The main driver of inequality - the tendency of returns on capital to exceed the economic growth - today threatens to generate extreme inequalities that stir discontent and undermine democratic values.

But economic trends are not act of God. Political action has curbed dangerous inequalities in the past, Piketty says, and may do so again.

Sounds quite optimistic! Right?

In Working Out Of The Box, Aparna Piramal Raje, the book jacket says, gives us an intimate peek into the lives of forty progressive leaders by exploring the connections between their workplace and their working styles. Capturing quirks, individual style of working, motivation and leadership traits, and tracing the patterns exhibited by these leaders, she unravels their defining qualities and explains how they reflect in their workplaces. Divided into four sections - personal energy, organizational capital, brand values, environment and sustainability - the book provides insight into what makes these CEOs tick & how they manage their most valuable assets.

I couldn't resist myself from reading the profile of Babasaheb Neelkanth Kalyani, Chairman & Managing Director of Bharat Forge. In the last century, before specialising in Pune real estate advertising, I was closely associated with Kalyani Group. For a couple of decades Bharat Forge was using corporate logo designed by ex-partner Prakash Thombre.

The Modi Effect - Inside Narendra Modi's Campaign to Transform India - is written by Lance Price. Former BBC correspondent & 10 Downing Street communication expert. Price was granted exclusive access & was given complete freedom to tell 'Modi's Rise to Power'.

If you are wondering - how did a 'chai wala' who sold tea on trains as a boy become Prime Minister of India - you must read this book. The book 'lifts the lid' on a whole new box of tricks, where message management & IT wizardry combined to create a vote winning colossus of awesome potency.

What say you? Isn't this gift precious?

Thanks, Mr. Satish Magar, for an enlightening Diwali gift!
