Add To Bookshelf
The Best Laid Plans
by Sidney Sheldon
"The Best Laid Plans" tells the explosive story of the beautiful and ambitious Leslie Stewart, who learns that for some men power is the greatest aphrodisiac, and of Oliver Russell, the handsome governor of a small southern state, who finds out why hell has no fury like a woman scorned. With the unexpected twists and turns that are the hallmarks of his novels, Sidney Sheldon spins a tale of two equally determined people headed on a collision course. Oliver has a strategy to win the White House; Leslie has a scheme to make him wish he'd never been born. They both should have known that even the best-laid plans can go dangerously astray...in a deadly dangerous way.

Women & The Weight Loss Tamasha
by Rujuta Diwekar
Bring back the tone in your body, the glow on your face and the sense in your head. STOP THE WEIGHT LOSS TAMASHA.

The nutritionist who taught us that simply eating (pun intended) is the key to a fab body is back with a comprehensive book on women, food and everything in between. From puberty to marriage, from pregnancy to menopause, Rujuta explains in detail the changes women go through (and God knows as Indian women we go through way beyond just hormonal - husband, in-laws, children, career, maid, etc.) and how what we do (or don't) during these phases affects our overall well-being.

Building on her four principles of eating right from Don't Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight, she goes on to share her four strategies (Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep and Relationships) for each of these phases and especially the lifestyle disorders of PCOD, hypothyroid and diabetes. Rujuta, in her usual indomitable style, debunks (rubbishes rather) myths related to food, hormones and workouts, forces us to rethink our belief that pregnancy, menopause, hypothyroid, etc come in the way of losing weight and reveals just how easy it is to remain healthy, strong and fit through one's life.

Mumbai's Dabbawala: The Uncommon Story Of The Common Man

Mumbai's Dabbawala: The Uncommon Story Of The Common Man
by Shobha Bondre
It is a stupendous feat of co-ordination, efficiency, honesty and sheer hard work: Mumbai's dabbawalas deliver 200,000,meals to office-goers and return the tiffin boxes back to their homes in a span of three hours, on a daily basis. Their clockwork precision and incredibly low error-rate has got the world to sit up and take note of this awesome army of 5000 men who carry forward a 120-year-old tradition.

They have made the headlines several times in the last few years: when they were accorded the Six Sigma status, when Prince Charles met up with them in Mumbai, when they were invited to London to attend the royal wedding. Today the Mumbai Dabbawala system is the subject of management studies by experts and students all over the world.

How does this giant tandem bike work.

Who are these men and what are their lives like.

What are the challenges in delivering these meals on wheels.

How does their Association hold it all together.

Narrated alternately by the man who has taken it all forward, President of their Association, Raghunath Medge, and by researcher-author Shobha Bondre, the story unfolds in all its many hues the struggles, the triumphs; the questions, the solutions; the urban, the rural; the personal dreams and the collective reality of Mumbai's amazing Dabbawalas.
