McKinsey’s former Managing Director Rajat Gupta was in conversation with ThePrint’s Editor-in-chief Shekhar Gupta and national and strategic affairs editor Jyoti Malhotra at ‘Off The Cuff’ in Mumbai. Rajat Gupta, who was convicted of a securities fraud in 2012 and spent two years in prison, spoke about his book, ‘Mind Without Fear’, based on his life and the details of his trial. He also spoke about how the purpose of the book was not to seek redemption or prove his innocence, how he succumbed to fear and did not testify at his own trial, and the experience of being in solitary confinement. https://bit.ly/2Gl9K3h
