  1. First things first, I respect this man for only one reason and that being the entrepreneurial spirit of the man Almost everybody in our country have a rough idea regarding the quantum of fortune the group possesses but there are few who are aware of the starting point with which all this started Subrato Roy started his entrepreneurial journey when he was 30 years old, with Rs 2000 as his capital He saved this money by picking up bags of sand, selling hand loom sarees, supplying stones to the cem [...]


  2. There are a few shortcomings The actual story required a tight editing to be able to bring out the highlights The editing would have helped figure out a way to introduce characters and often cameos in a manner that do not take anything away from the story In fact, this is the kind of narrative that would do well with an online presence as an aid a significant part of the character histories, citations from letters and Acts etc could be linked back for further reading without adding to the volum [...]


  3. I read Sahara, the book is deeply researched, the author documents expertly the problem that Sahara faced with RBI and SEBI, It sheds light on its business model, and some of its shady business practices.The author does his best to provide the Sahara point of view, at all times, He is unscrupulously fair to them and as objective as possible in his analysis His understanding of the banking, capital markets environment and regulators is deep, however the book suffers from poor editing There is a l [...]


  4. Sadly, there are very few books written about the successes, failures and the scoundrels of corporate and business India Tamal Bandopadhyay has made a brave attempt and could have written a much better book given his insight into the inner workings of the RBI Unfortunately, this author has NO style whatsoever His previous book had a bunch of anecdotes about HDFC Bank a great subject but was equally dry because this author can t write Some editors and journalists can t make the crossover to autho [...]


  5. The book is like a piece of newspaper journalism rather than a book While there is a lot of information on the sequence of events from the start to current, there is little analysis done by the author The book lacks a streamlined narrative and is just a collection of incidents Things such as how the money was diverted from depositors to various other businesses, the intricate maze of where, how and to what extent such diversion was possible, how did Sahara get away with the regulators all these [...]


  6. I just completed The Untold Story , its an amazing piece of work by the author Though this is my first book of author Tamal BandyoPadhyay, but it has touched my heart because of the facts revealed by him about the Great Indian Sahara family It is because of the author I got to know the reality of the family and the story behind their success His Subrata Roy hardwork and his intelligence has lead the family reach the skies An interesting work of ART by the author, just loved it.A must read who wa [...]


  7. If you ever had questions like How did Sahara own an airline How did they buy those big hotels in UK Where does the money flow from Are the depositors real or is it a front for the black money of the politicians this book is for you.Explains in detail about how Sahara managed and continues to manage the money of poor depositors, by shifting from one regulator to the other Some of the details get repeated multiple times at different points in the book A recommended read to know about Shadow banki [...]


  8. Ok and a light read Gives insights into the unique business model which shadow banking operates on But mostly about regulatory battle of the group with RBI and SEBI.


  9. There are biographies, autobiographies, and then, there is Sahara The Untold Story When a book, supposed to be a work based on truth, comes laden with a disclaimer from the concerned people, Sahara India Parivar in this case, that we don t agree with many of the things and the way they were presented in the book , well, you know, it would really be difficult to keep your curiosity under check.And why should you Tamal Bandyopadhyay, the author, clearly mentions that this book is not a work of fic [...]


  10. History does not repeat but it rhymes This book by the noted writer and present Mint Banking editor Tamal da, gives the history of RNBFC residuary non banking financial companies in India, and how Peerless and Sahara benefited from regulatory arbitrage to carve out empires which subsequently were collapsed by SEBI RBI The Sahara saga made headlines years back with its open fight with SEBI culminating in caustic orders by KM Abraham and CB Bhave possibly a reason for them not getting extensions T [...]


  11. This book is dry listing of events related to Sahara, that someone with patience would have been able to get from various news sources Important topics like how things were done are missing I felt investigation on part of the author was missing Characters are introduced haphazardly and many times things have been repeated Also the book has typos and grammatical errors If you want to just know the events related to Sahara group, you can read this book, otherwise give it a miss.


  12. When the title of a book says that, it will tell the untold story of a big business conglomerate Like the Shahra India Pariwar, it immediately perks up the readers interest When the said book starts with a disclaimer by the Business it raises expectations further Sahara The Untold Story by Tamal Bandyopadhyay, is one such book.Read the Full Review here jaibalarao 2014 06 21 tell


  13. I ve read only half of the book it is written in a very friendly language The quality the choice of words are good It gives you total overview of Mr Subrata Roy his company Sahara How he overcome the obstacles to make Sahara, one of the reputed company in recent times It shows how passion, hard work and dedication can help you realize your dreams instead of all the hardships A book to be read before you die.


  14. A very interesting read There are a lot of details about Finance, Accounts, and laws which were too technical for me But I was able to get a broader view on things.I focused on the outline and got to know some interesting facts about the Sahara corporation and how there have been suspicions that it s being used for money laundering.


  15. Don t read success stories, you will only get a message Read failure stories, you will get some ideas to get success Abdul Kalam


  16. In depth and unbiased analysis of SaharaFantastically written book Covers the Sahara story thru facts and not opinion In depth analysis of the company as well as the entire RNBC institutions


  17. The book is very interesting,It gives us insight of the Sahara India Pariwarand also of all the illegal activities carried out by them.The author has done a great work of bringing this insight of Sahara Group.The book is a must read.


  18. A rambling narrative that could have been far cogent Would have been gripping had the style not been so journalistic and had the content been better ordered Mr Bandhyopadhyay should have chosen a better publisher.Bottom line it s sensationalistic, just like our media.



  19. Pros the book gives good insights into the unorganised micro finance industry of India and also SaharaCons The conclusion does not encompass the current state of Sahara


  20. Needs editing Writer who s basic profession is journalist presented the book as a column in a newspaper Went deep into figures which makes reader feels boring.





  21. I believe the Author has done good study and presented facts for the reader I always wanted to know about Sahara and Roy and the book gives a good insight on it.
