Published by Random House India; 20 Oct; Paper back; Rs. 199;  pages: 304

A profile of 5 prominent baniya businesses and their owners showcasing the qualities of a Baniya to excel in business.

The Baniyas—they are at the epicentre of every imaginable business in India— from infrastructure to oil & gas and retail to e-commerce, from IT to telecom and education to aviation, no trade it seems, is beyond their grasp. 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. In this book, through tracing these profiles, he tries to find out what it is that gives them the Midas touch, and the distinction of being India’s biggest wealth creators.
