Scenes from an Executive Life
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2000; 0140293574 / 9780140293579; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 
From the author of the best-selling The Inscrutable Americans, comes a hilarious novel about the roller-coaster career of an enterprising marketing executive. It is the story of Gambhir Kumar, Human Resource Development Manager in the Y Corporation, whose life is never the same again after he is transferred to the Tissues and Toothpicks Division. As he travels up and down the corporate ladder, Gambhir redefines the role of the young urban professional who must strike a delicate balance between his heady ambitions and the lustful demands of his heart. The novel also features some unforgettable cameos: Gambhir's wife Draupadi (DD to her friends), who fights the ennui of yuppie life with boyfriends in the afternoons; Kapila, Gambhir's passionate bedfellow from the Bombay office; 'Smiley' Chatterjee, the adman with a three-word vocabulary; and Kumar, a self-styled entrepreneur intent on selling the sword of Gautam Buddha to American tourists. Scenes from an Executive Life is an immensely entertaining exploration of ambition, lust, envy and intrigue in a typical corporate set-up in post-liberalization India. Printed Pages: 207. 002442
