2. Diamonds in the Dust by Saurabh Mukherjea

Over the last few years, there has been a growing realization among Indians that their life’s savings, the bulk of which are parked in physical assets like real estate and gold, are unlikely to help them generate sufficient returns to fund their financial goals, including retirement. At the same time, many have lost their hard-earned money trying to invest in financial assets, including debt and equities. Such losses have occurred due to many reasons, such as corporate frauds, weak business models and misallocation of capital by the companies in whose shares unsuspecting investors parked their savings. What options do Indian savers then have to invest in, and build their wealth?

The size of this economy is humongous, and the available opportunities immense. However, in the crowded market of creators, the chances of getting lost are higher than those of getting noticed. If you want to be part of the Creator Economy, the lessons derived from the 11 journeys of India’s leading Creators, covered in this book, will help you carve your niche and build a strong brand.

6. Startup Fundamentals by Nanda Kumar

This book is for early stage entrepreneurs who have a business idea and have already figured out what exactly they want to offer to their customers. The aim here is not to motivate you to get started, but to educate the various possibilities of getting things done.

Hence the ideal reader is someone who has a product / service in their mind, completed their business calculations, is willing to manage the risks and just about to get started. Right from naming your company, registering it, banking, taxation through selling your products / services, this book will guide you on how to get it done in a quicker and affordable manner.

The book focuses on the culture, family politics, business rivalries between and within families, ego battles and a lot more. Plus there are the inheritors themselves who sometimes take the business to great heights and during others, lead to its doom.

8. The Maverick Effect by Harish Mehta

This book deals with India’s recent history and charts a nostalgic but turbulent journey through the 80s and 90s that not all may be aware of. Before I found out about this book I hadn’t really known about NASSCOM’s existence or about the author, but I’m glad I do now. I think there are some fantastic lessons in here that probably anyone in business or who owns a start-up will find useful. Through the author’s personal journey, we are told about an industry body that didn’t just change the IT industry but the global image of India as we know it today. Easy to read, peppered with interesting and sometimes hilarious incidents of bureaucratic red-tape and how the author surpassed them – it feels almost like a guide to doing business in India.

‘I promise not to be three things–profound, pedantic and pretentious,’ says Shobhaa De, as she begins her heart-warming book.

It’s a promise India’s most beloved writer delivers on in her irreverent memoir about the year leading up to her landmark seventy-fifth birthday. Quintessential exuberance and keen observations firmly in place, she tells us about travelling solo, feasting (and fasting) with family and friends, the triumphs and losses that accompany ageing, the vagaries and vulnerabilities of being a writer and, above all, how food connects people in the most unexpected places and delightful ways.

Books Of The Year 2022 [Editor’s Choice]

Published

on

Each fall, the editors of the Delhi Wire select the best fiction and nonfiction titles of the year. Our editors read, nominate, discuss, and debate the merits of each year’s books, working together to land on our list.

From authors, both established and new, our favorite books of the year meditate on everything from life online to life in the intersections of identity. Set everywhere from the all-too-real world or solely in the mind, the distant past, or the speculative future, these books offer escape, education, and spiritual enlargement—whatever you’re looking for.

With such an embarrassment of riches on offer, ranking these books is a downright impossible task, so we present our selections in no particular order. In this singularly strange and challenging year, books comforted us, allowed us to travel even when borders were closed, and ultimately, kept us sane. We made it to the end of this terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year, and we’re still reading. Congratulate yourself for that—and don’t waste any time stocking up your “to be read” pile.


Celebrating the year’s end, celebrating you, the authors & the extraordinary books that defined 2022.
