Headline Memoir of a Media CEO

Author Name: D. D. PURKAYASTHA | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

This is the story of a boy from an obscure remote town in India who reaches the highest rung of the glitzy media corporate house. I believe it would provide inspiration, confidence and hope to any middle-class Indian child to reach the top. 

The story is intertwined between my life and the media. It throws some light into the backrooms of the media about which people are curious but about which little is known.
