    We Are Like That Only, compiled by Rama Bijapurkar, is an excellent analytical book about the Indian market, which attempts to understand the logic of consumer India.

    Summary of the Book

    We Are Like That Only deals with the psyche of the Indian consumers, the cause behind the Indian market to be what it is. It discusses what it takes to sustain a business not just on paper but in reality, in the present-day market. Numerous international brands have come to our market hoping to hit the billion-plus mark. However, they constantly face consumers who bargain for any and every product. Indian market works totally in contrast to the predictable discernments of an emerging market most of the time. All this, at the end of the day, leaves the seller with innumerable questions about the structure of the Indian market. We Are Like That Only describes twelve important facets of the Indian consumer, which are nothing but the attempts to answer those questions.

    The Indian consumer expects value.

    The best realization for me has been "Indian consumers are certainly poor, but they expect the same value for products/ services they buy". This should be very critical for any company that wants to invest in India. You just can't bundle some international products and expect it to work in India.

    Decent insights about the indian consumers buying habits

    A good read, especially for marketing professionals/aspirants. It's a nice one time read, but for people who tend to treat it as a holy bible written on the Indian consumer, I'd beg to differ on a couple of aspects regarding the book:

    - This book might come across as a startling revelation, only to a foreigner who plans to set up shop here or an Indian who has never set foot outside a urban metro. Unless you belong to the above two categories, i don't think any Indian isn't already aware of ...

    Yet to read

    Opening pages of book itself are mind boggling. It's like you see it everyday, but it's book which helps you with a vision to see what you see. I have yet to complete reading book. But equally excited about it.

    Thats how it is

    Book is pretty precise to Indian consumers, for everyone trying to catch the nerves of Indian market, and for those who know it already will just agree more.
    This book is of good use to all the marketeers and business students to have a grip on this subject. As for Ms. Rama, she knows what she is talking about and right at her fingertips. Must read... will certainly gain a lot from it.
