Penguin Random House India is a subsidiary of Penguin Random House, a prominent international publishing company. The formation of Penguin Random House took place in 2013 through the merger of two well-known publishing houses, Penguin and Random House. This global merger led to the amalgamation of Penguin Books India and Random House India, resulting in the establishment of Penguin Random House India. In 2020, Bertelsmann assumed full ownership of Penguin Random House. Committed to publishing high-quality literature across diverse genres, Penguin Random House India operates in both English and Hindi and collaborates with regional publishing houses to release content in various Indian languages, including Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Bengali, Gujarati, and Kannada.
‘Breaking the Mould’ to be released date
Penguin Random House India has announced the forthcoming release of a new book by former Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor Raghuram Rajan. This book, co-authored with economist Rohit Lamba, is titled ‘Breaking the Mould: Reimagining India’s Economic Future,’ and it is set to launch on December 7. In a tweet, Penguin Random House India expressed their excitement, stating, “We’re thrilled to introduce #BreakingTheMould, a thought-provoking exploration of India’s economic future by the renowned figures, Dr. Raghuram Rajan and Rohit Lamba.” The book delves into the future of India’s economic development and addresses key questions about India’s current economic path, its global ranking, and its ability to create employment opportunities.
It’s worth noting that this is not Raghuram Rajan’s first book on the Indian economy. He has previously authored several books, including “Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy,” which earned the Financial Times Business Book of the Year Award. His other works encompass “I Do What I Do: On Reform, Rhetoric, and Resolve,” “Saving Capitalism From The Capitalists,” co-authored with Luigi Zingales, and “The Third Pillar: How Markets and the State Leave the Community Behind.”
Rohit Lamba is an assistant professor of economics at Pennsylvania State University and also serves as a visiting assistant professor of economics at New York University Abu Dhabi. He is a regular contributor to prestigious academic journals and newspapers. Regarding the book, he stated, “India’s remarkable journey toward modernity is currently at a critical crossroads. A proud and ancient civilization that has effectively grappled with the fundamental questions of nationhood now faces the challenge of rethinking conventional wisdom to answer the urgent question of our times: how to bring prosperity to the hundreds of millions of our fellow citizens who are striving to make a decent living.”
