Author Aarti Kelshikar recently had a book event at the American School Mumbai and is planning a similar one in Delhi.

"How India Works: Making Sense of a Complex Corporate Culture" fleshes out the cultural nuances that impact the way Indians work
and should be an interesting read for expats working in India and
for Indians who have repatriated. This book is available on Amazon India, Amazon International and Indian Bookstores.

From Aparna Mohan Dhawan (AES Parent): It is increasingly accepted that to work successfully across cultures, it is important to understand the drivers and the complexities of the respective culture. The book 'How India Works: Making Sense of a Complex Corporate Culture' facilitates this understanding. Published by HarperCollins, the book fleshes out the cultural nuances that impact the way Indians work. Based on interviews with Indians and expatriates from 13 countries who have lived and worked in India, How India Works offers outsider and insider perspectives on the psyche of the Indian in the workplace.

APRIL 1966
THIS issue is about women. With the press all over the world eagerly writing about India's
new Prime Minister, we decided to reprint an interview with Indira Gandhi which is perhaps more significant today than when it was published in News Circle in November, 1961. "History has seldom left her alone'' Barbara Lazarsky wrote five years ago and goes on to give perceptive insight into the personality of the lonely, remarkable woman who so recently assumed one of the highest positions held by
a woman in modern times.

MARCH 1966
In this issue Mrs. Bowles describes with affectionate understanding her experiences
as the only foreign guest on Shastrijis funeral train. It is a stirring story and News Circle is
very proud to have been' given the honor of publishing this poignant account of a sadly memorable journey.

pus continually change and expand, adapting and evolving to the needs of the modern world. Read more on Kabir's attempt to keep his AES memories alive.
