Book Releases by IIM Faculty & Alumni

Nayanika Mahatani, PGP 1992, a copywriter by day and a storyteller by night has launched her latest¬†book -“The Gory Story of Genghis Khan” a.k.a. Don’t Mess with the Mongols.

She studied her MBA at IIM Bengaluru and became an investment banker. A decade later, she followed her heart to live in Africa. She lives in London with her husband, two daughters and their two goldfish named Sushi and Fishfinger. The author has been invited as a speaker at the Jaipur Literature Festival in 2015, 2016 and 2017 in Jaipur and at London.

The book, The Gory Story of Genghis Khan is armed with an intriguing tale, fabulously foul facts, wonderfully wacky illustrations and our time-travelling commentator Yakkety Yak’s appalling jokes, Nayanika Mahtani sets out to explore whether Genghis Khan really was the evil villain that he is often made out to be. The book is full of information and is humorously light.

Nayanika’s debut novel, Ambushed, an adventure set in Tiger territory in the Himalayan foothills,¬†was published by Puffin in April 2015.¬†It was the photo of a tiger and a poacher that compelled her to write her debut novel Ambushed in 2015 about an adventure in the wild.

An irreverent look at one of the history’s most feared characters. Sure to make kids relook at one of the most dreaded school subjects – history“- Sanjeev Sanyal, Indian economist, bestselling writer, environmentalist, and urban theorist.
