Aroon Raman Wikipedia
Aroon Raman is an Indian entrepreneur and author.
Raman was born in India to parents of South Indian descent. He did his Masters in Economics from Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi and then pursued his MBA from Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
In 1991, he set up "Raman Boards", a company involved in electrical materials, which was later bought by the ABB Group in 2007. He then started his Research and Development company named "Raman FibreScience" in 2008. The company specialises in wet-laid composites and offers end-to-end solutions to research and innovation problems. His company is also well known for developing talent at the grassroots level.
In 2010, he was elected Chairman of the CII Karnataka State Council for a period of one year.
In 2012, Pan Macmillion India published Raman's first book, The Shadow Throne, which became a national bestseller. The story revolved about a secret society that threatened to launch nuclear weapons on Indian cities and the subsequent attempts to stop them. It was considered among the best Indian fiction releases of the year by The Telegraph and a racy political thriller by The Hindu.
The Asian Age considered the lead character well sketched out and the chase sequences of the book exciting while The Hindu considered the build-up good and the plot "effectively convoluted". The Hindustan Times also called Raman the Robert Ludlum of Indian thrillers.
Raman wrote his second mystery-thriller, The Treasure of Kafur, over a period of seven years. The book, published in December 2013 by Pan Macmillion India, was set up in Mughal India and has fantasy along party fictionalised characters. The Indian Express called the book as entertaining and action packed.
His third book, SkyFire is a sequel to The Shadow Throne and was published in 2016.
