Ahay Nagrajan did his schooling in Mumbai and Bangalore. He did his graduation from SRCC, Delhi and followed that up with a Masters degree in finance (MFC) form University of Delhi. He worked at University of Delhi. He worked as a financial advisor for over two years. Besides working or writings, he enjoys reading up on cricket statistics-his first love since class five. This is his debut novel.
The book is about the professional journey of a 24 year young guy who has just passed out of college and has been placed as Associate Finance Advisor with Wealth Capital Associated Private Limited, a Bangalore based financial firm which deals primarily with limited set of exclusive HNI clients and helps them manage their personal finances. The story begins around March 2007 when the Indian economy is booming and is completely unaware of the following economic catastrophe. Shortly after joining, the subservient and enthusiastic lad learns that his new boss is dominating, obnoxious and has a very peculiar habit of constantly scratching his crotch. The story is a humourous journey during which the lad acquires along with professional experience, a lot of personal experiences dealing with his irritating boss and various clients of his firm and how their attitude changes with the arrival of the massive downfall of the Indian economy. The race to save his job while still maintaining the big reputation of the employers and in order to chase his first appraisals proves to be quite ludicrously amusing.
This is a debut book of the author. Overall the story is quite simple and flows easily. The author has been able to tickle the funny bone. None of the situations described seemed impractical at any point. Language used is very much ordinary, and graspable. Overall, the book is quite enjoyable and can be finished in short time.
As a debut author Mr. Abhay Nagrajan has done quite appreciable job. He chose a storyline which is part of the life of an ordinary employed person. The front-cover of the book has been sparsely decorated but tries to insinuate the happenings in the story. And last but not the least, the book has been priced reasonably.
