Power, pelf and politics

DNMUM427321 | 12/2/2018 | Author : Ratnam Singh | WC :535

Ravi Subramanian’s novel is a fictional take on the Centre and RBI governor clashes says Ratnam Singh

Don’t Tell The Governor is a thriller set against the ongoing tumult in the relationship between the Reserve Bank of India and the Central government. The novel weaves through the world of power, politics and lobbying, glamour and corporate malfeasance, and presents, in thinly fictionalised form, several recent events that have hogged the headlines – demonetisation, IPL and match fixing, terrorism and fake currency, the surgical strike against Pakistan, Indian public sector banks and their bad loans, Vijay Mallya and Mehul Choksi, to name a few.
So cleverly does author Ravi Subramanian weave fiction with fact, real characters and incidents, that readers may want to Google to understand better what, or who is being referred to.
