I picked up a copy of Sentinel House looking forward to reading all about the Newspaper business, the men/women heading it and their art of survival in the face of cut throat competition of today. It is the story of Harivanshrai kumar, Harry for short who is the chairman of Cromwell, Kirby and Jackson and Editor –in-chief of the Indian Sentinel. As you read on you find what a despicable and ruthless character this newspaper baron is, who leads an existence devoid of values both in his professional and private life.When you expect the author to talk more about his journalistic experience in his book, to the contrary you find an unsavoury and detailed description of the immoral life lead by the protagonist and his siblings which appear repulsive.The saving grace however is his son Siddharth, who has a goal in his life and chooses the right path in achieving it, his handicap notwithstanding.
I did not regret missing the launch of the book.
