The business of mythical mysteries


From financial blueprints to Pharaoh’s tombs, it might seem like a long journey but Mumbai-based author S Venkatesh has it all covered. The private equity investor and business guru who has helped establishments scale up across different spectrums, is back with his second book. AgniBaan is an ancient and mystical connection between India and Egypt that stitches a modern-day conspiracy, with the plot covering everything from The Giant Pyramid and Lonar Lake to environmental disasters and e-warfare. The intrepid explorer shared, “Writing this book gave me an opportunity to delve deeper into certain ancient secrets connecting the two countries, and link them to electronic warfare and climate change. I am delighted to have been able to blend my love for history, science and intrigue into a thriller.”
