In 1995 Ajit Balakrishnan is quietly experimenting with the new and fascinating technologies of the Internet in 1995 when the dot com fever grips the world. Venture capitalists, investment bankers and lawyers pound at the doors of his tiny office in a low rent area of Mumbai, urging him to take his company public on New York's NASDAQ stock market. Balakrishnan sets out on this enterprise, a path that takes him through the world's financial centres of London, Hamburg, New York, Boston and San Francisco. This story recounts how he battles adversaries many times his size, fends off avaricious lawyers who try to extort money through class action suits in the tough courts of lower Manhattan, rebuffs investment bankers who try to engineer the sale of his company and tries to make sense of a world where technology and business models change every few months. He steers his company through the financial crashes of 2000 and 2008, watches in awe as terrorists bring down New York’s World Trade Centre towers, puzzles over the decline of once famous names such as AOL and Netscape and the rise of new behemoths like Facebook and Google, wrestles with India's legal system and pushes to bring Rediff into the new world of the Internet. Gradually, he realizes that the battles he is part of are not just business battles they signal the dawn of the Information Age.
