My Review - 

Your dreams and ambitions will lead you to happiness and inspire you to work hard. But when greed comes into life, people act selfishly. They try to find shortcuts and won't care about the consequences. 

End of Saamba Dance by Sridhar Ramachandran is a story of Saambasivam Venkatraman (SV). He is the chairman and MD of Saamba Holdings Limited. He is a great visionary and successful leader. He started the company with his childhood friend Anantha and was soon accompanied by SV's brother Subbu. Saamba Ltd. becomes a multi-millionaire company in a few decades. SV's elder daughter Radhika married Venkat, son of a minister, M.Arunachalam Chettiar. SV's wife, Meenakshi, is a homemaker; the author eloquently describes their marriage and love. 

The story starts with an accident of a TV reporter, Sriraman, in 2017. The author switched back to the year 2013, and we learned all about the Saamba group. Soon the SV's visions crossed the lines, and his greediness will take the company downhill. SV has loyal employees, but he has hidden enemies too. The high-profile frauds did by politicians and businessmen will lead to economic disasters and murders. 

In his debut book, Sridhar Ramachandran dealt with corporate corruption and banks and government policies, which proves to be a financial disaster for the Saamba group. The book starts with a thrill but changed the pace soon. The plot setting has a Tamilian Brahmin culture. The author used footnotes for a few South-Indian and financial terms for better understanding. 

The story has a lot of characters, and sometimes, it creates confusion. The suspense element is low; I feel bad that the author didn't give much importance to Ram's death. But with the smooth execution of the plot, lucid language, radiant cover page, and rare insights into the business world, this book will grab the reader’s attention. The author nicely put down a tale of corporate failures and success. Although the book is for everyone, I feel that the readers who have a financial background and are interested in the business aspects will enjoy it much more.
