    TICKING TIMES

    An Accountant and a Gentleman

    A NOVEL SET IN THE AUDIT PROFESSION

    MIKE MAHI DARES TO BE DIFFERENT. Not for him the well-trodden path of his ancestors, their small lives lived out in the confines of a colliery. He dreams of getting into a larger world, of being in a profession that commands respect, chartered accountancy, and his struggle to rise to its topmost echelons.

    It is the story of Mahi's courageous leap into an unfamiliar world and his tumultuous relationship with the celebrated journalist Tejas Arya, his college mate and fellow Intern. A tale of two idolized icons – with their human frailties and professional rivalries…

    One night, it all threatens to come crashing down. In a rogue bank that Mahi audits, there are charges of incompetence, insider trading and misconduct against him. The case moves to the court.

    WILL MAHI COME OUT UNSCATHED? Or will a high profile career built up so painstakingly, collapse? Can Mahi look to Tejas for support in his hour of need? Or, will the journalist in Tejas ditch his long-time friend for a hot story?

    Engrossing!!!

    Generally, unless I find a book engrossing, I take my own sweet time to finish it. But this, I completed in a day. Once I picked up the book, it was difficult to put down. A simple narrative, with the story going back and forth, made for an interesting read. Being a CA, i was definitely able to relate to the story. But even otherwise, i'm sure anyone would enjoy it. This is a great start from Mr. Pattabhi Ram and I look forward to reading more such books from him in the future.

    Page-turner

    Being a Chartered Accountant, I enjoyed reading the book with it's twists and turns around corporates, audit offices and court rooms. The book is a racy read and will keep you turning the pages. It is well-written and edited, unlike most other books out there.

    Mike and Tejas do remind you of Kane and Abel but the similarity stops there. They both operate in completely different worlds and are very different characters. Their professional rivalries are well explored and the rags-to-riches sto...

    Mesmerizing story

    I am a reader with moderate pace and love to take my own sweet time to complete a Book ...but trust me, it changed my reading style. Ticking Times is class apart ....simply amazing,unputdownable. Every CA from remote place or not blessed with wealthy parents would find a 'Mahi" in himself. Very inspirational for students...the story-line as portrayed here, according to me should appeal even to other stream people ...I do not restrict my recommendation to only CAs and CA students ...it's a c...

During the course of journey, in all our lives there are those human beings who have been mentors like Mr Muscles or Uncle Krishna, and their advices have made the life of lot of people. It spreads how dynamic ...

    Must Read

    A good book for accountants and lay readers. Interesting and worth reading. Can't put down once started. Writing style not as polished as seasoned writers. But the content is amazing. A must buy.

    "Ticking Times" by V Pattabhi Ram

    I used to think that reading novels is a waste of one's time. This book has made me change my view.

    Bandwidth of author's expertise extends from economics to auditing, ethics, governance, sports etc. Therefore, it is not surprising that his maiden novel itself is eminently readable. His burning desire to streamline auditing and even judicial processes through innovative methods comes alive in the story.

    The author's ideas and ideals are exemplified by the central duo in the novel, namely Mi...
