Mindful But Absent

By Vikas Gupta

“This is a story about relationships within a family unit and close friends
for a happy & enriching life

It traces fictional journeys of a few friends from IIM Ahmedabad over
the course of 25 years

Set against the backdrop of multiple bottom-line or impact investments, it highlights inherent conflicts of success in the intensely competitive lives of these MBAs.

The story amalgamates rustic India and contemporary global with
its wry humor and its take on the startup ecosystem which most professionals may relate to.”
