Every organization knows that human resources are its greatest asset. To really work well as a team, managers need to think like employees, and employees need to know what management really thinks.

About the Author :

Utkarsh Rai is the India head of an IT MNC and a recipient of Udyog Rattan Award. After earning his degree in computer science from BITS Pilani in the late eighties, he worked in Siemens, first in Delhi and then in Germany. Later, he moved on to work with Adaptec in the US. During the late nineties, when Indians were flooding the US job market, he sensed better opportunities in India and swam against the tide to join Motorola in Bangalore. Having gained the required experience, he took another gamble in leaving a safe and successful career in Motorola to bet on a small start-up, Infinera. Since then Infinera has gone public and is growing manyfold.Utkarshs desire to share his experiences with a wide audience spurred him to write books. He is the author of Offshoring Secrets and Life in a Cubicle (e-book). Apart from writing, he enjoys globetrotting and has travelled with his family to many countries. He is interested in learning about various cultures, religions and the history of the world.

‘Utkarsh Rai has penned a particularly relevant book on personnel  management which I would strongly recommend to every organization to  use as a reference manual as they evolve new ways to manage talent and  build organizational excellence.’
Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, CMD, Biocon

‘A useful compilation of everyday situations we all go through in the work  environment. . . The book consistently provides balanced perspectives/  viewpoints of both sides.
—Som Mittal, President, NASSCOM

‘[The book] beautifully captures the diverse myths prevalent at the office.  Each myth is described in detail, along with the underlying reasons. . . is  beneficial to both employees and managers. Together, they can bring positive  changes to any organization.’
Nandan Nilekani

I guess it’s the first novel by the writer. it’s commendable if it’s the first one. the culture lash between a small town a big city is also described well. the mentality of Indian parents is well etched out. I liked the most the scenes of the office evil boos. he reminded me of one of my own bosses. I feel most of the bosses spend most of their times putting their foot down.
