The volcano of ``Satyam`s Great Fraud``, an over Rs.7, crore swindle by its Chairman and CEO, Mr. Ramalinga Raju, the largest in India`s known economic history, burst into the open during the chilly days of early January 29, when the painful dust of the Mumbai8 carnage of 26/11 was just starting to settle. Its debris inflicted painful wounds on the psyche of its over 5, employees, thousands of international customers, and millions of investors in India and abroad. Several of its bankers, financers, suppliers, auditors, and senior managers too did not escape minor economic and psychological wounds. The basic issue thrown up by this disgraceful fall of one of India`s internationally iconic IT-brands, besides frauds and financial malfunctioning is that of corporate mis-governance. Satyam is not the only culprit in the corporate forest of India. There are several Satyams in India’s realty and infrastructure sectors where those in the know say that top politicians have dirtied their hands and faces fairly substantially.

To sum up, Satyam basically highlights the issue of corporate mis-management.

Each and every reader of this book, if he or she has some exposure to corporate work environment, is guaranteed emergence of a cascade of similar situations on their mental screen, while going through it.
