Captains File India: From Nayudu to Kohli: India's Test Cricket Captains by Rob Harvey Free EBook Epub,Pdf, Mobi Download
From Nayudu to Kohli, India's 32 Test cricket captains. From the days of the Maharajas and Nawabs when one had to be royalty to lead India into battle, a position no commoner was fit to fill, to the modern day of helmets and television, stump cams and DRS, India's 32 finest are here together for the first time.

The Colonel CK Nayudu reportedly disallowed his players from drinking water at the drinks break. The Maharajkumar of Vizianagaram "did not understand field placings or bowling changes and never maintained any regular batting order."

Mansoor Ali Khan lost the vision in his right eye in a car accident and six months later made his debut for India. Three Tests later and he was the captain. The man he replaced, Nari Contractor, nearly died after receiving a blow on head while batting in the West Indies. Allegations of ball tampering, match fixing, too aggressive, too defensive, a few tears, a Tied Test match and a team all out even though only five wickets were down. And some missing teeth.

This and so much more in Captains File India, From Nayudu to Kohli, India's 32 Test Cricket Captains.

Test Cricket is an odyssey into cricket's heart and history, filled with heroes, villains, laughter, tears, bats and balls. No subject has escaped cricket writer and filmmaker Jarrod Kimber in his chronicling of Test match cricket. He takes cricket fans through all the seismic events in cricket's tragicomic history, from its accidental birth to its run-in with death. Lords, maharajahs and refugees have all played the game that has survived many wars, corruption and terrorism to still be standing - still be captivating - today. Cricket has been dented by history, evolved by nature, grown entire nations and had to fight just to remain. This is not just the story of the people who played the game; this is Test cricket's story.

Manjunath Kumar is fourteen. He knows he is good at cricket - if not as good as his elder brother Radha. He knows that he fears and resents his domineering and cricket-obsessed father, admires his brilliantly talented sibling and is fascinated by the world of CSI and by curious and interesting scientific facts. But there are many things about himself and about the world that he doesn't know... Sometimes it seems as though everyone around him has a clear idea of who Manju should be, except Manju himself.

When Manju begins to get to know Radha's great rival, a boy as privileged and confident as Manju is not, everything in Manju's world begins to change and he is faced with decisions that will challenge both his sense of self and of the world around him...

 The (In)Eligible Bachelors by Ruchita Misra Free EBook Epub,Pdf, Mobi Download

Arranged marriages are complicated things. So are mothers. And so are relationships. Kasturi Shukla is a fresh MBA graduate with a great job in hand. She is also geeky and single at twenty four. The biggest sore spot in Kasturi's life is her dominating, arranged marriage obsessed mother now hell bent on getting her married at the earliest. Does Kasturi find love in one of the rather weird but IIT or IIM boys that Mum manages to ‘shortlist’? Or perhaps she can follow her wildly beating heart that seems to be set on the Greek God incarnate that her boss, Rajeev sir, is? With office buddies Ananya and Varun by her side, the hilariously fumbling Kasturi embarks on a rip roaring journey to find Mr Right. The (In)eligible Bachelors, which chronicles Kasturi's daily diary through this time, is a riotous adventure of adrenaline, laughter and guffaws. It is also an invaluable lesson in love, family and friendship. A witty take on the system of arranged marriages, the marriage market that rules the Indian society. A witty and humorous easy to read writing style makes for a good read.

Not many people have heard of IIM and IIT graduates becoming bestselling writers or chief ministers. The professional career path chosen by many people is as plain as daylight and can be predicted many years into the future.

It is a collection of eighteen different stories, each featuring an individual who has dared to walk the less-traversed path.

Having graduate degrees from prestigious institutions and a doctorate in environmental toxicology, Rahul Ram chose to become a musician instead and played for the famous 'Indian Ocean' rock band. Such stories in this book challenge the common set of decisions that most people make for their futures. These stories show just how unpredictable life can be.

My Life, My Rules: Stories of 18 Unconventional Careers is a collection of non-fiction tales that immerse the reader just as much as any good fiction novel. It was published by Westland in 2013

Pichai: The Future of Google by Jagmohan S. Bhanver Free EBook Epub,Pdf, Mobi Download

On 10 August 2015, an unassuming product expert who learnt his ropes at IIT Kharagpur was declared the next CEO of tech giant Google. Sundar Pichai's appointment was hardly an unexpected one. Pichai is a man known as much for his veritable Midas touch with every product he has developed for Google – Chrome, Chrome OS and Android to just name a few - as for his superlative people skills and calm approach to innovation and creativity. Yet, the company's decision to restructure its product lines and Pichai's appointment as the head of a leaner, more focused Google, has raised inevitable questions: What does Pichai's role indicate for the future of the tech giant? Will Google consolidate its position for existing products or will they focus on creating new ones? And will Pichai transform the organization that Page and Brinn created and led, or confirm the belief of a minority of naysayers that he is not yet ready for this daunting role? Pichai: The Future of Google examines these questions and more. Combining reportage and analysis, it throws light on Sundar Pichai's childhood and education, his entry into the tech world and quick rise up the ranks in Google, his experience with two different leaders, Schmidt and Page, and the takeaways from the Larry Page era, and his key contributions as a leader and tech-guru to Google's most successful properties. As much a study of the organization's fascinating eco-system that allows experimentations, innovation and progress to thrive Incisive and informative, as of the person chosen to head it, this book will inspire as much as it will inform.
