Rokda, is a book which for the first time chronicles their journeys. From the Agarwals of Emami and the mild mannered R.K. Somany of Hindware, to the savvy Rohit Bansal of Snapdeal and the dynamic Guptas of Meru Cabs, Rokda seeks to uncover the secrets of doing business the Baniya way.

Nikhil Inamdar, through extensive interviews with the businessmen, their family and friends, tries to piece together the very qualities that make the Baniyas such a successful entrepreneur group in he country.
