The Deccan Herald does it again

The Deccan Herald's list of Bestsellers dated 5th March 2006 features once again Mediocre But Arrogant as a Bestseller - but under the Non Fiction category ... along with other pieces of "non fiction" such as

The Inscrutable Americans; Anurag Mathur, Rs 95
The Wise and Otherwise; Sudha Murty, Rs 150
The Chronicles of Narnia; C S Lewis, Rs 745
The Alchemist; Paulo Coelho, Rs 195
Mediocre but Arrogant; Abhijit Bhaduri, Rs 195

But what is worrying is the list that is listed under their category of Fiction!!

The Google Story; David A Vise, Rs 595
A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Brysan, Rs 350
48 Laws of Power; Robert Greene, Rs 125
Corporate Capers; Dinesh Kumar, Rs 295
10-Days MBA; Steven Silbiger, Rs 295

Maybe there's a message in that!!

There are kings, and then there are pawns. the king is looked sometimes as a father figure, then sometimes as a money-sucking bastard, sometimes as anndaata, sometimes as...forget it. Well, ur book is seen as a non-fiction is another perspective by a pawn, but then its a gud news, coz ur story was too real to be fiction.

Hi Abhijit,

Just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed reading the book a lot and I am glad that you are getting great reviews for it. I have also written about it in my blog (I sent you an email with the link). I really hope you write more and I will certainly be waiting for your next one! Goodluck! :0
