Product Description

Dr Ashok Shekar Ganguly is a noted industry expert, former chairman of Hindustan Lever and was a nominated member of the Rajya Sabha. Much of Dr Ganguly's working life has been with Unilever PLC, where he spent over thirty-five years. He was the chairman of Hindustan Lever Ltd from 1980 to 1990 and a member of the Unilever Board from 1990 to 1997. Dr Ganguly has held board-level positions with various other multinationals, including Hindustan Lever, ICI India, British Airways, Wipro, Tata AIG Life Insurance Co, Hemogenomics and Firstsource Solutions. He was a member of the board of British Airways PLC from 1996 to 2005.

In his memoir, former Hindustan Unilever chairman Ashok Ganguly invites readers to journey with him as he looks back fondly on his extraordinary life - from his childhood to his upbringing in the metropolitan Bombay of the 1930s, to his PhD in Illinois and his eventual return to India. After joining Hindustan Unilever's R&D department, Ganguly quickly rose up the ranks as a talented young professional, eager to discover and learn new things. The story spans across eighty years of his life, its edges tinged by the tumultuous events in India in the twentieth century, and interspersed with fascinating people, from the mysterious Kishen Khanna, who accurately predicted events in Ganguly's life, to encounters and friendships with well-known historical figures such as Mother Teresa and Rajiv Gandhi.

Ashok Ganguly's journey was interspersed with failures, but he doesn't shy away from talking about these and the sacrifices that went on to define his life. Honest, reflective, personal and revelatory, Afterness provides valuable insight into his thinking process and decision-making skills that enabled Ganguly's meteoric rise and sustained his legendary career.

'The life and work of Dr Ashok Ganguly is a shining example of the creative role of enterprise in the development of our country and the social transformation thereto''Ashok Ganguly, scientist, business leader, statesman and public intellectual, is a warm and soft-spoken person. With his integrity and intellect, he is a source of wise counsel. Truly, a Renaissance man''When Ashok Ganguly puts pen to paper, take note. As a friend of long standing, I have learnt to trust his fearless judgement''This book is a humbly written human story about life and career. It is touching as well-told stories tend to be, especially when narrated during the afterness of life'
