Mumbai: Satya, 36, IIM topper, hailed by the media as the fresh face of space-age business, quits two days after his elevation as the Group CEO of a major Indian business group.
Hyderabad: Raja, 51, not even a matriculate, once a trade unionist, later, a well-known political pimp who built up his vast business domain from nothing, suddenly renounces everything and turns to spirituality.
Cochin: Tom, 31, the only child of a multimillionaire, who became the sole owner of a multi-faceted business empire following the sudden demise of his father, attempts suicide.
Three individuals who have never met or known to each other.
A year later they surface, molded together as single-heart, with their newfound entity, Tasāra, branded with the logo of a pyramid supported by three visible pillars and a fourth pillar, invisible — representing someone who is potent, influential and brilliant, but prefers to remain elusive. Who is it?
That enigma has been haunting the media for seven long years. Until…now.

 My Review

The book dvelves the depth of corporate world through a coherent and consistent storyline. The life sketches of Satya, Tom and Raja are intricately coalesced, maintaining the suspense and evoking intrigue in every pages. The anagram of TaSaRa from their names, corresponding to the Satya, Tamo and Rajo gunas is brilliant. Their characters are molded in sink with the guna they represented. I have come across a lot of books discussing philosophy and spirituality in different contexts like science, mythology etc but the perusal of the same in the context of corporate management is the first in my reading experience and hence the topic is refreshing and exciting. Even if the story is about three males and their guiding individuals, who are also males, female characters are given prior importance and their role in the story is at par with the male counterparts. The language is easily comprehensive and maintains the bar at the same time.During the revelation of the fourth pillar, the pace of the story drops a little. Author succeeded in maintaining the curiosity but towards the end the zest was missing.                                                      

One Liner
