By Madhup : Chanakya is the well known king maker in 3rd Century B.C. He documented his ideas on how to identify leaders and groom them to govern a country in his book “Kautilya’s Arthashastra”. In this Audio Book series, the author simplifies the teachings of Chanakya from the Arthashastra, and made them relevant for today’s leaders of the corporate world through his writings on Successful Management the Chanakya Way. Recently, Shemaroo Entertainment has launched ‘Corporate Chanakya Audio Book’ that unveils the age old formula of ‘success for leaders’. The renowned actor, Tom Alter has lent his voice to this audio book. This unveiling event was graced by the Author Radhakrishnan Pillai, Mr. Atul Maru, Director Shemaroo and Mr. Akash Shah.
This series is divided into 3 Audio Books namely ‘Leadership’, ‘Management’ & ‘Training’. They include chanakya’s insights on various topics like – organizing and conducting effective meetings, dealing with tricky situations, managing time, decision making and responsibilities and powers of a leader. With 70 chapters on Leadership and Management, this Audio book talks about Power, Qualities of Leader, Competition, People & What a leader should not do.

While sharing thoughts on Corporate Chanakya, author Radhakrishnan Pillai said, ‘Even though the book has become a bestseller there are many who still love to listen than read a book. This audio book caters to ‘listeners’ following the international trend. The knowledge of Chanakya will reach millions of busy professionals. Tom Alter’s voice is powerful and engrossing. I am proud to be associated with Shemaroo in this educational project.’
Shemaroo Entertainment’s Director, Hiren Gada said, “This Audio Book Series would help you learn business strategies the chanakya way, even on your morning jog, drive to work or when you just want to relax with your eyes closed but ears open. These are the important features which excited us to release the audio version of this book.”
“In a very short time, this book has become national bestseller book and also got nominated for the ‘Vodafone Crossword Book of the year Award.’ Now, in the joint venture with Shemaroo, the first audio version of the entire book is made available across all digital platforms. A learning film based on some important parts of the book will come soon in order to connect non book readers to Chanakya’s teachings’ he said.
