His parents thought he was studying business administration in USA.
 He was actually studying journalism.

His parents thought he was doing case studies on IBM and Pepsi. 
 He was actually interviewing the Governor of Ohio or a convicted murderer in jail.

When he was consultant for the Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital in Pune, he told Rajshree
 Birla and Kumar Mangalam Birla their offices would be in the Basement of the Hospital.

As an entrepreneur, Amit has been India’s No.1 Healthcare Consultant, India’s No.1 Retail Consultant
 and India’s No.1 Residential Real Estate Consultant, apart from excelling in several other sectors.

As a Retail Consultant, he wrote prolifically for various retail publications. For one article, he interviewed several industry leaders, including Kishore Biyani, considered the father of modern retail in India. Little did poor Mr. Biyani know that Amit would lambast him in the article. The next time they ran into each other, Mr. Biyani told Amit that - being a fellow Marwari - he should have been less critical of him.

It was the same article that led a leading publisher approach Amit to write a book - back in 2010, 
but that part of Amit’s life only began 7 years later. When he did begin, he did not stop or even pause. He has completed ten (YES, TEN) books in 17 months and is now working on his eleventh.

Four of his ten books have been No.1 bestsellers in their respective categories. Amit is also amongst the 20 most followed people on Goodreads.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short Political Thriller
By Aarti on 15 November 2019
Spies, Lies & Red Tape
Blurb: “The Gang of Six were clinching their fists under the 21-seater oval teak table in the PMO in New Delhi. How could their Prime Minister speak to them like that? How does the Constitution of India allow such people, with just 35 seats out of 543 in the Lok Sabha, to become the PM?
The Indian PM's aircraft took off from Islamabad Airport at 7:45 am IST and was scheduled to land at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) in New Delhi at 9:10 am IST. When the aircraft started deviating from its scheduled route, there was panic at the IGIA air traffic control tower. By 9:15 am IST, the aircraft was seen heading south, when it became out of range of the radars at IGIA. Had the PM's aircraft been hijacked? Was it headed to Sri Lanka or the Maldives?
The defence minister, external affairs minister and the NSA had accompanied the PM to Islamabad. In their absence, the best men to contact the Indian Air Force Chief were the cabinet secretary or the defence secretary. Both men tried to get hold of him, but to no avail. He was not answering his office or mobile phone. They tried the Vice Chief and got no response either. What in hell was going on?
By 9:45 am IST, Indian Army soldiers in battle gear began arriving in army trucks at North and South Block, and at various other ministry buildings spread across Lutyens' Delhi. Hundreds of soldiers also arrived at the residences of the union ministers in the 28.7 km2 Lutyens Bungalow Zone.
At 9:45 pm Pakistan Time, about five hours after the Indian generals had finished the press conference in New Delhi and about two hours after millions had started demonstrating on roads across fifty-plus Indian cities, Prime Minister Irfan Khan chaired a meeting of Pakistan's National Security Council. A plan of action was framed.”
‘Spies, Lies & Red Tape’ by ‘Amit Bagaria’ is a political thriller novel. The prologue is really fascinating, arousing anybody’s interest in the story.
The story begins with the introduction of spies, of various countries. The author introduces us to the connection of Pakistani spies with the spies of other countries associated with India. They meet and interact with each other for their own secret purpose. In between, the plot also shifts back to India and its relationship with Pakistan and its terrorism. Read the book to know what happens next!
This book is a blend of politics, thriller, mystery, suspense and military. The plot of the book is smart and enjoyable. The varied plots are executed perfectly by the author. However, the transition between the plots is perplexing.
The story took a lot of time to build up. I was getting curious as to what is gonna happen next, but as soon as all the characters were established the story somehow became less interesting. The narration is too elaborate at times also. The author has added insignificant descriptions thereby pulling the story unnecessarily.
The language of the book is easy. However, the tone of the book is too much hostile towards Pakistan due to its terrorism. The story is also somewhat unrealistic, like for instance, when the army goes against the government and take hostage of officials for taking revenge from Pakistan.
The research done at the beginning of the book is good and tone used for the same is aggravating. I like story till the midway but after that I lost interest in the narrative. The cover and title of the book is apt to the story.
This is a slow paced book involving political drama between various countries, mainly India and Pakistan. Overall, it’s a good one time read with enough amount of suspense.
