Why SBI’s Rajnish Kumar Is Hooked To Mythical Reads
SBI Chairman Rajnish Kumar on books that he enjoys reading, and why mythical reads top his list.
From a book that offers a new perspective on the Mahabharata to the evolution of societies and changing trends, these themes have stayed with Rajnish Kumar.
The chairman of State Bank of India told BloombergQuint why he loves mythical stories, and how the two books that are dated still offer insights on business.
Here’s a look at his reading list...
Govinda, By Krishna Udayasankar
Kurukshetra, By Krishna Udayasankar
“I have recently finished reading these two books. They offer altogether a different perspective by retelling the story of the Mahabharata,” Kumar said.
Sapiens, By Yuval Noah Harari
“I like reading books on mythology, as well as evolution of human kind and social trends, and enjoyed this book,” Kumar said.
The Future Shock, By Alvin Toffler
The Third Wave, By Alvin Toffler
These two books by Toffler, although dated, remain relevant even today, in terms of understanding how businesses and societies need to evolve to stay relevant, and have been interesting to read, according to Kumar.
