RASH DECISIONS charts the first year of self-employment for Rashmi Biswas who spent several years in the corporate world striving for elusive accolades, total fulfillment, and work-life balance. Narrated with honesty (she even shares her food diary) the book incorporates the themes of family, friends, politics, gender issues, and yoga set against the backdrop of starting a new business.
