Chicken Soup for the Indian Soul: Celebrating Brothers & Sisters by Jack Canfield Siblings are the perfect introduction to the big, bad - but mostly good! - world waiting to teach you a lesson or two. Loving, but not as indulgent as parents, quick to grab an opportunity to teach you your place in the family echelon, quicker to beg you for unearned favours and, at the end of it all, your first shelter in a storm. There is no other relationship quite like it. Rivalry, camaraderie, jealousy, love and support ... you can find all these in the bond that young people who have been brought up together share. Honouring this unique relationship is Chicken Soup for the Indian Soul: Celebrating Brothers & Sisters, filled with heartfelt stories.
Whether it's the big brother who bullies you, or the annoying younger sis who makes off with your newest clothes, you are as certain of your importance to them as they are major figures in your life. For it's your sibling who influences you most in the growing-up years: teaching you to face up to the schoolyard terror; providing wise (and usually unasked for) counsel at the beginning of your first crush - and picking you up from the ruins of a break-up; even refusing to reveal your confidences to parents or friends.
Whether you share a special connection with someone through genetics or the heart, it's great to have a companion for life.
Maxing our career is our -dharma- in this age of Kali. But at what cost- Working parents don't see enough of their children, couples barely spend time with each other, young men and women become strangers to their families and friends. And here's the irony - most of us mention our families and loved ones as the main reason for why we strive towards success, without realizing that we stand to lose them in this very quest.
So how do we strike a balance between our careers and our families.
In his first major work of non-fiction, bestselling author Ashok K. Banker goes back to Puranic sources to address this question. He writes of Ratnakaran the bandit, who made a living out of killing and looting to support his family, and his transformation into Valmiki, the sage. Using his story and contemporary stories from today, he shows us how they contain the answers to today's most pressing issue: how to prioritize, manage, and enhance our personal as well as professional lives.
Insightful, thought-provoking, and utterly inspiring, The Valmiki Syndrome is a map to the most elusive treasure of modern existence- personal fulfillment.
Guanxi the Art of Relationships: Microsoft, China, And Bill Gates's Plan to Win the Road Ahead by Robert Buderi Guanxi (gwan-shee), the Chinese term for mutually beneficial relationships essential to success in the Middle Kingdom, tells the story of the juggernaut research lab that underpins Microsoft's relationship building in China. Unfurled through a gripping narrative that moves between Beijing and Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington, it follows the lab's emergence as a mecca for Chinese computer-science talent -- a place where 10,000 rsums arrive in a month, written exams are farmed out to eleven cities to screen applicants, and interns sleep on cots next to their cubicles. So far, the company has invested well over $100 million and hired more than 400 of China's best and brightest to turn the outpost into an important window on the future of computing and a training ground to uplift the state of Chinese computer science -- creating dramatic payoffs for both Microsoft and its host country that are helping the company overcome many of the challenges of China.
Sprinkled with telling observations, compelling characters, and lively anecdotes about the brilliant successes and sometimes painful stumbles of the world's most powerful software company, Guanxi is essential reading for business leaders, entrepreneurs, and technologists around the globe.Read More...Hide Pages: 352

Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua A lot of people wonder how Chinese parents raise such stereotypically successful kids. They wonder what Chinese parents do to produce so many math whizzes and music prodigies, what it?s like inside the family, and whether they could do it too. Well, I can tell them, because I?ve done it?
Amy Chua?s daughters, Sophia and Louisa (Lulu) were polite, interesting and helpful, they had perfect school marks and exceptional musical abilities. The Chinese-parenting model certainly seemed to produce results. But what happens when you do not tolerate disobedience and are confronted by a screaming child who would sooner freeze outside in the cold than be forced to play the piano.
Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother is a story about a mother, two daughters, and two dogs. It was supposed to be a story of how Chinese parents are better at raising kids than Western ones. But instead, it?s about a bitter clash of cultures, a fleeting taste of glory, and how you can be humbled by a thirteen-year-old.
Witty, entertaining and provocative, this is a unique and important book that will transform your perspective of parenting forever

3's A crowd by Vijay Nagaswami It is not only the aggrieved partner that needs to learn how to recover from the shock and pain caused by an adulterous spouse. The perpetrator is equally a victim of the affair.
It is a myth that only men have affairs. Whom are the ones they re having their affair with.
Affairs are not the product of our times. Infidelity has informed our history, religious stories and culture since time immemorial. Modern technology and freer mingling of the sexes only slightly help.
And sometimes that help backfires. As anyone whose secret text messages on his cellphone have been discovered by a suspicious partner.
Such surprises and insightful observations abound in yet another robust book by renowned relationships counsellor Vijay Nagaswami, in the third of Westland s New Indian Marriage series.
More than humour, more than his wit, Nagaswami s greatest quality is his refusal to point out the villain in any piece. We are all flawed individuals, he reminds us yet again, and sometimes make foolish choices in the heat or boredom of the moment. But hope is at hand. We CAN regret, forgive and learn to love again. And, most importantly, cast away our guilt and our recriminations.

My name is Michael Sibley
My name is Michael Sibley by John LeCarre
This novel comprises some of the best work of an extremely gifted and perhaps under-regarded British crime novelist....What gave John Bingham his magic was something we look for in every writer, too often in vain: an absolute command of the internal landscape of his characters, acutely observed by a humane but wonderfully corrosive eye."Michael Sibley and John Prosset shared a history that dated back to their first years at boarding school, and so the news of Prosset's murder came as a great shock to his old friend -- especially because Sibley had been staying only the day before at Prosset's country house, where the body was found.When the police arrive to question him in connection with the murder, Sibley finds himself lying about his recent visit, and thus begins to reveal the true nature of a longstanding but volatile friendship, fraught with mutual deception and distrust. As he tells his version of the truth to the police -- and to the reader -- Sibley makes the first of many fateful mistakes and finds himself not only under suspicion, but a primary suspect in the investigation.Seen through the eyes of Sibley himself, My Name Is Michael Sibley is a mesmerizing account of murder, as the narrator purposefully attempts to elude the police and prove his innocence to the reader in the same breath.
