About the Author:

Arjun Shekhar did his masters from Delhi School of Economics, but he wanted to quit and write scripts for films. He tried his luck and applied for a mass communication course but unfortunately couldn’t get through. He took it to heart, decided to bury his passion deep inside and instead settling for a profession. He drifted towards a postgraduate course in Human Resource Management at XLRI Jamshedpur in 1988 and later joined the corporate sector where he worked as HR at factory sites.
Arjun believes that if it wasn’t for his wife whom he met during his XLRI days, he could have got lost in his profession. The couple founded a not for profit organization called Pravah to sensitize urban youth, to become active citizens and socially responsible leaders in the future. His wife left the corporate world altogether, but Arjun continued to have one foot in there, and thereby founded a consulting firm in 1997 called Vyaktitva that unfolds the true elements of people and organizations.
A couple of years back, Arjun withdrew from his active role at Vyaktitva, and penned down his experiences into a novel set in the corporate world – A Flawed God published by Hachette which came out last year. The book went into a second print run. He also took on the role of Chief Volunteer at Pravah engaging in several projects including co-authoring a book on youth movements published by SAGE that has been very well received.
This third book came out of a deep self awareness workshop called Get Real that they designed at Pravah, which focuses on symbolic literacy and the structure of stories.
