Sanjiv Chugh is a commerce graduate from Delhi University, who started his career working for Mercantile Credit Corporation, in the credit card division. As a senior marketing executive, he was awarded the best executive award for two years. His last assignment was as a CEO of a leather garment manufacturing unit. He is now a full-time writer, who devotes his time to subjects like politics, religion, and philosophy. He also writes poetry. Karmic Illusions is his debut book and was written distilling years of experience gained in sales and marketing as well as projects at his manufacturing unit. Situational leadership helped in handling several goal-directed projects simultaneously, evolving perceptual insight and strategic competence as also administering decisions in processes sensitive to time. In all this, having understood the minutiae of human behavior and organizational management, there was realization of existential dynamics. The overflowing sentiments in situational conflicts are explained in the book through analyzing consciousness and time.
