'Dheeraj brings alive a new India, one that wants to live every moment as a spectacle. Contrary to the assumptions, India's mass consumers want the latest in technology and life, and are eager to upgrade to new experiences. To woo this India, brands need to have a swagger themselves. India Reloaded cuts through the clichés around emerging markets it's a refreshing take.'
-Frederique Covington-Corbett, Director, International Marketing, Twitter
'India's consumption landscape is complex and challenging. One half of consumers are still enjoying the democratisation of access that many brands brought in 20 years ago, while another half is dealing with the after effects of it. Western management thinking often attempts to break up the challenge into parts, into neat compartments to be addressed independently. This makes India look even more difficult market than it is. This book boldly attempts to bring it all together, to see it through an Indian lens, to see the one-ness in it. Practising marketing managers will find this refreshing and I suspect, rather useful.'
-Dev Amritesh, President & Chief Operating Officer, Dunkin' Donuts, India
'India's diversity often conceals its underlying unity. Dheeraj unpeels the layers to reveal several unifying truths about India's consumers than its diversity suggests; truths that can make the difference between success and failure for marketers. This book needs to be on every brand manager's desk.'
-Ranjan Kapur, Country Manager, WPP India
'Segmentation discussions can get overly data based. In India Reloaded Dheeraj has segmented India without jargon, providing insights on attitudes and aspirations using illustrations from films and music. Read it for an understanding of consumer India.'
-Rajesh Jejurikar, President and Chief Executive, Farm Equipment and Two Wheelers, Mahindra & Mahindra
'What can popular culture teach us about business? Everything. Dheeraj makes connections between seemingly disparate socio-cultural and political behaviour of India to explain its consumption culture. This is a 'must-have' for successful businesses the cultural compass of new India.'
-Nirvik Singh, Chairman & CEO, Asia Pacific, Grey Group

A compelling and engaging read that uncovers the new reality of a fast-changing nation."
-Glyn Atwal, Burgundy School of Business, France

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I assumed I was close to understanding the market and pulse, this book proved that I wasn't as close as I thought. Great insights here into how to view the market, what consumers value, how the "lower classes" look for aspiration and not just cheap products. Highly recommend this book for anyone considering or currently tackling consumers in India.
