Overview: If God Was a Banker

About the Book: If God Was a BankerTwo young management graduates, with nothing similar in family backgrounds and temperament, join the New York International Bank on the same day and take two entirely different routes to success. Both rise up the ranks at breakneck speed: the fast and aggressive Sundeep, who will stoop to anything to get ahead, and the mature and sensible Swami, with a high regard for good old ethics. The racy narrative set in the high-pressure milieu of competitive banking carries the undercurrent of a clash of values, in the intermeshed realms of the personal and the professional. This is a story peppered with ambition and frustration, deceit and malevolence, love and lust, and the desperate struggle for status and power. And, above all, there is a top-notch banker who plays the benevolent God whenever crises loom over the young guns An insiders fictionalised account of how Indian professionals experience the world of foreign banks, the story spans three continents About The Author: Ravi Subramanian Ravi Subramanian, an alumnus of IIM-Bangalore, batch of 1993, is currently working with a leading foreign bank in its Retail Banking unit.

     Startling 4 September, 2013 On
    This is an astonishing book of facts through fiction of how some of top executives of a Multi National Bank climb up the professional ladder by skipping the basic ethics and moral values of life.
    A deadly mix of skills, passion, lust and hunger for power makes an Indian Institute Management Graduate to resort to all sorts of unethical ways of climbing up the corporate ladder in a very short time and in the meanwhile uses his subordinates wives and business partner's secretaries, to satisfy his physical needs.
    Simultaneously, another Indian IIM graduate who belongs to a different pedigree believes in honest, ethical, faithful and smart way of work style which ultimately leads him to victory over the former, after a series of events that slowly unfold unknowingly, resulting in the former being sacked in a very unceremonious way.
    It's really horrifying to learn how ruthless some top level executives can be when it comes to demonstrating their power in public, without any heed to their subordinates' moral values and sentiments.
    A clever turn of events and real page turner every moment, though a little embarrassing for women readers.
    But, a must read for all those who are part of a corporate world..

    Congratulations to Mr Ravi for giving such a wonderful reading experience.

  2.  As the title says 18 October, 2013 On
    Great read i had and especially from an Indian Author. The story is about two IIM graduates and the changes what takes in their carrier. How each person rises in their carriers by different means. Nicely written and each character was well written.

    Story takes its twists and turns and we will not be able to predict what would happen and that glued me to the book and made me to complete after reading through half of the book.

    Overall had a satisfying experience after reading this book.
