Roller Coaster: An Affair with Banking by Tamal Bandyopadhyay is a captivating account of the Indian banking industry, as seen through the eyes of one of the country's most experienced financial journalists. The book offers readers a unique glimpse into the world of Indian banking, providing insights into the lives of some of the industry's most prominent personalities, including bankers, central bankers, and policymakers.


The book is structured as a series of anecdotes, each offering a fascinating insight into the personalities and idiosyncrasies of the individuals that make up the Indian banking industry. From RBI governors who let their hair down on the dance floor to bankers who rely on divine intervention to clear loan proposals, the book offers a rich tapestry of stories that provide a deep insight into the personalities that have shaped the Indian banking industry.

One of the key strengths of the book is its author's deep knowledge and experience of the Indian banking industry. As one of the country's foremost banking journalists, Bandopadhyay has a wealth of knowledge and insight into the workings of the industry. He draws on this knowledge to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of the Indian banking industry, covering its evolution over the past two and a half decades, as well as the personalities that have shaped it.


The book's focus on the personalities and idiosyncrasies of the individuals that make up the Indian banking industry makes it a refreshing read. Rather than focusing on the dry, technical aspects of banking, Bandopadhyay provides readers with a lively and engaging account of the human side of the industry. This focus on the personalities and idiosyncrasies of the individuals that make up the industry is what sets the book apart from other accounts of the Indian banking industry.


However, the book is not without its weaknesses. One of the main criticisms that can be levelled at the book is its limited scope. The book focuses mainly on the governors of RBI and CEOs of leading private sector banks, in the post-liberalisation era. This means that the book's coverage of the Indian banking industry is somewhat limited, and readers looking for a more comprehensive account of the industry may be left wanting.


In conclusion, Roller Coaster: An Affair with Banking is a fascinating and engaging account of the Indian banking industry. It provides readers with a unique glimpse into the lives of some of the industry's most prominent personalities, offering a deep insight into the human side of the industry. While its limited scope may be a weakness, the book is a must-read for anyone interested in the Indian banking industry, or for anyone looking for an engaging and entertaining read.
