“Life Mantras” – by Subroto Roy – I’m Not Joking!

“Life Mantras” – a book by Subroto Roy – This is not a joke!

Some time back, I was surprised  to see a philosophical book by Subroto Roy at an airport book stall. It was titled “Life Mantras”.
Life Mantras

I believe the book was launched in ‘absentia’ of the author (who was in jail) with many heavyweight celebrities and politicians (the launch had heavyweights, the jail also had heavyweights). There were, of course, Sahara employees who hoped for some announcement about their pending salaries, commissions, and bonuses.

The book is published by Rupa, is priced cheap and available easily.

I hope the book generates some of the money that Sahara has to deposit with the SEBI :-).

Maybe, now Vijay Mallya will be inspired to write a book titled “The Greatest Escape“?

Or, the political parties’ high-command can write “Win Some, Lose Some Lose Some, Lose Again” (you can guess which parties).

  1. Long periods of stay inside confines seems to convert money makers into semi philosophers.

    More Books one can expect:
    1. 2G – how it cut my bandwidth, by A Raja
    2. Memoirs of an illgotten landscape by vadra
    3. What’s not so common about common wealth, by kalmadi
    4. Seeing the world through Augusta choppers, anonymous


  2. If I remember right – this is supposed to be a Trilogy on his years in Tihar! So there are 2 more to come …
    On the family front his wife and son have acquired Macedonian citizenship.
    In essence – The Great Escape (not by Mallya) is already on course.

    I doubt if Mallya or Lalit Modi will write anything, as it appears that one needs to be behind bars to get the philosophical vein 🙂
