**Round Ireland with a Fridge meets The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel** “...a rip-roaring tale of dodgy dealings and hilarious happenings.” “...this was the most fun reading I can remember...” “...I laughed out loud as I devoured every page...’ “...riveting stuff, brilliantly written...” RUPEE MILLIONAIRES 'Dodgy' Frank Kusy, born into poverty from immigrant parents, learns to live on his wits––first as an unwitting money collector for Ronnie Kray, later as a Buddhist trader in London’s St Martin’s-in-the-Fields market. Then he meets up with thuggish ‘Spud’ who is so good at scaring people, notably the Petrovs, two encroaching Russian gangsters, that he hires him on the spot as his business partner. But it’s a deal with the Devil. Spud is a loose cannon, liable to blow up at any moment. The two travel to India to become the largest wholesaler of hippy-Hindi glad rags in the UK, and to fulfill their dream of becoming rupee millionaires. Along the way, they pick up a motley crew of kooky characters––Ram, a lovable, crutch-bound Rajasthani, George, an irascible American, Nick and Anna, a quirky Canadian couple, Susie, a Dagenham girl gone ‘native’, and Rose, the secret love of Ram’s life. These become the ‘Pushkar Posse’, a group of oddball traveler-entrepreneurs who meet once a year to have fun and make money in equal measure. Join Frank on this wild rite of passage through India. EDITORIAL REVIEWS: “If you like comedies, travelogues and/or memoirs then you’ll love this book. The charm and richness of India is portrayed beautifully, and together with some great characters, surprising twists and emotional moments, this is a truly enjoyable read. This book is about self-searching, faith, hope, love and friendship – it is also about the depths of foolishness we human beings can reach with all of our quirks and foibles. This story is so much more than a mere memoir or travelogue. I cannot recommend it highly enough. ~ Awesome Indies “Where to start with my thoughts on this captivating story? Honestly? It's the most entertainment I've had (with words) since Round Ireland with a Fridge, which, if you could splice together with The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, might bring you close to imagining the heady pull of Frank Kusy's superb Rupee Millionaires.”~ Kindledays “Mr Kusy is clearly capable of writing vivid and enticing portraits of India – his past as a travel writer shines through, and we see India as if we are there first hand.”~ Harper Collins reviewer “Once started, begs to be read in one sitting. It is full of flavour, especially the scents and scintillations of India as we've never read about them before, and satisfies on every level. This is a story pleading to become a film!" ~ Grady Harp, Hall of Fame ‘Vine’ reviewer “This book is a memoir that will make you laugh and cry and feel like you've made friends. You'll fall in love with India and even a little bit with London.” ~ Jay Mittener, Top 500 Amazon reviewer

What makes a company truly outstanding? What is the secret sauce of delivering successful results over multiple decades? What is common to Asian Paints, HDFC Bank, Axis Bank, Marico, Berger Paints, Page Industries and Astral Poly? They are Unusual Companies, built by Unusual Billionaires. This book tells the story of these seven companies, handpicked out of 5000 listed on the stock exchange. Built by visionary business leaders, they have delivered outstanding results for a decade and more. How did these companies do it? Why couldn’t this be replicated by other companies? What are they doing differently? Saurabh Mukherjea, bestselling author of Gurus of Chaos, delivers an exceptional book with lessons to learn from these seven businesses. Mukherjea tells you why focusing on the core business is central to corporate success and how a promoter giving up control to the top management could be a boon. He also explains how investors can generate market-beating investment returns from identifying companies such as these using a simple set of metrics. Packed with these learnings are riveting corporate stories of how Hindustan Unilever made an aggressive bid to buy Harsh Mariwala’s business, but had to sell a business to him in a few years, or how Page Industries found an innovative way to stop unionization at their manufacturing units. Other stories include the turnaround of Axis Bank and the boardroom coup that led to its chairman’s exit and how Vijay Mallya sold Berger Paints to the Dhingra brothers. This book is mandatory reading for anyone who wants to understand how business is done successfully in India.

This is a very good book on managing personal finance. It gives clear principles to follow, which enable individuals to accumulate wealth by investing his or her income properly. -Sitaram Jindal, Chairman and Managing Director, Jindal Aluminium Ltd. Have you ever wondered why some people get rich easily, while others struggle financially all their lives? Is the difference because of their educational qualifications or their choice of jobs, business or investments?

The Shocking Answer is: None of the above! In his maiden novel, Abhishek Kumar reveals the timeless wisdom of wealth creation and accumulation and shows how anybody - no matter where they stand in life at this time - can become a millionaire.
