Amongst Monkeys A Frank Story from IIM-A

Author Name: Narendran | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

Getting into one of the country’s top management schools is hard.

Dreams are many. Expectations are high.

So what happens when a budding leader from one of India’s famous Public sector company ends up there, hoping IIM–A is all about leadership. And then, his dreams start to crumble.

There’s probably no one who can narrate those feelings better than Naren, a simple student at IIM – Ahmedabad.

His journey, through a fiercely competitive world, that is, the most premier management school in India, is by turn thoughtful, poignant and hilarious; sometimes laced with sadness. And it quickly becomes apparent, that it is not what he was looking for.

And the pressure of memories, of unrequited love, and the expectations of everyone around make things that much harder.

The course is tough. The hours are long. Grades are hard to come by…

Is all lost? Or is there a treasure left for Naren to take back…


The Week:

Mrs Kalyani - DEAN – VIT Business School:

I read the book at one go. The book is a true depiction of life at IIMA and it is very well written! 

The Assam Tribune:

What attracts the reader to the book is its unique narrative that takes one on a roller-coaster ride. Narendran deserves kudos for baring it all in this candid confession which he has penned with ruthless honesty !
