The 'B' Factor

What is most happening about B schools and their graduates ??
The Contemporary Indian Novel is all about them and their lives and their ideas and their dreams and how they succeed or fail, or their fucked up love affairs.

One reason why IIM C should take me: I might not make a good manager but I believe I m good enough at writing. I may not get a job if India's slowdown becomes a recession but I can still write novels and live by.

Today's ET CD was all about the Corporate Novelists who write about the spicy corporate life/ spicier b school life.
About 6 months earlier there was a mention in the financial express as well.

A few books such books:
IIM-Ganjdundwara - this is a actually supposed to be a good story and not all self adoration
Keep off the Grass
If God was a Banker
Mediocre But Arrogant
Married But Available

And IITians are not behind: all the more reason why I can write a novel
Tushar Raheja
Chetan Bhagat
