About Me

Nilesh has written three books, across fiction and non-fiction covering a diversity of themes and genres.

In 2009 he published his first novel, 'The Second Hand' which was based on his ancestral home town in Bundelkhand province, placing it in the backdrop of the 1992 Babri masjid riots in India. Nilesh’s second book, 'No Man’s Land' - about a Gurgaon family struggling with itself, greed and sudden wealth from an ancestral piece of land, with echoes of characters from the epic Mahabharata - was released in November 2013 by Fingerprint Publishing.

His third book, and first non-fiction (with co-author Pushpdeep Gupta) "Inflection: Career Arcs from Evolving India" was published in December 2017. It covers the career stories of 32 professionals, all from the 1999 batch of IIM-Calcuttta, over 18 years of their professional lives, and through them delves into the changing face of careers in the last two decades since liberalization.

Nilesh holds a post graduate degree in management from IIM-Calcutta and a bachelor's in computer engineering from Lucknow University. He has been working in the financial sector for eighteen years now and currently heads the South Asia financial sector portfolio for International Finance Corporation - part of the World Bank Group, based in New Delhi.
