 Sanjaya Baru’s Controversial Book ‘The Accidental PM’

Then it was over an Hour at Crossword in Kemps Corner in South Mumbai to pick up two Books…. Sanjaya Baru’s Controversial Book ‘The Accidental PM’ that has been smartly timed to launch during Elections…his inside story in the PMO as UPA 1’s Media Advisor to the PM…he reveals how the PM has virtually no say in UPA 2 Government with Sonia Gandhi deciding on much….was told the book was fast selling out and only four copies were left…sure there will be a reprint …if I find it’s worth reviewing  then plan to blog it later…..the second ‘FlashBoys’ by Michael Lewis has been released overseas last week but the copies should be available in India by April 15,2014 was told…Lewis blasts High Speed Trading that has actually rigged Wall Street

Pleasantly surprised to see Tata Group Chairman,the relatively Young Cyrus Mistry too at Crossword  in the first hour of the Store Opening and clearly a bibliophile like I am …exchanged pleasantries

All the ‘S’s Combine beautifully for Liverpool …they were 2 up against arch rivals Manchester City at half time before  ‘S’ of  Man C equalised…and now Liverpool lead again 3-2 !
