Books I love

Steven Pinker

Prof. Steven Pinker shows how subtle changes in wording can lead to dramatic changes in imagery. I learnt a lot from this book, and try to follow the paradigm laid here in my own writing.

Ricky Ponting

This autobiography — written by one of the most successful captains in contemporary sporting history — is a homage to the attacking mindset. I recommend Ponting to anyone who wants to learn how to win three consecutive cricket world cups.

Abhinav Bindra

Another outstanding autobiography, this one has a distinctly Indian flavour to it: Mr. Bindra takes us through the focus and labour that it takes to win an Olympic Gold. I found myself moved by Bindra's sheer will. "It's not every four years, it's everyday."

Ramchandra Guha

Mr. Guha writes about how the Mahatma's mindset changed Indian leadership, and how the country is  different from other modern democracies. This book made me appreciate the power of multiculturalism and plurality — in a world of dying democracies, it instills faith in humanity.
