Three informers. Murky bylanes of the underworld that hold the key to deadly terror plots. The chase for India's most wanted terrorist. The lives of three of Mumbai police's best informers collide in the shady bylanes of the underworld. It's a bad bad world. A world of crime, sex, drugs, murder and betrayal. He who lies lives to see the light of another day. A day replete with even greater risks. From shady underworld dealings to switching gang loyalties, the men graduate to selling information on terrorism. Then begins the chase...to catch India's most wanted terrorist: Riyaz Bhatkal, the man with the ominous track record of masterminding seven blasts in three years. The search takes them to the most unassuming yet dangerous terror hubs across India. With trust in short supply, time ticking away and the sword of Damocles over their heads, the men can only hope that they are not on a wild goose chase.
Taking cues from economics, demography, history, culture, philosophy and good old common sense, Rama Bijapurkar makes sense of the complex and inscrutable Indian market the many Consumer Indias, their diverse and schizophrenic consumer behaviour and the way to make your company's fortune in this billion-plus market.
Irreverent and insightful, this book answers the questions to twelve key facets of Consumer India. Bijapurkar explains why the Indian consumer market is like that only, why it will not change in a hurry, and what it takes to develop a winning made for India business strategy.
