Sudha Murty recently shared her July reading list on social media. The Rajya Sabha MP, philanthropist, and wife of Infosys billionaire Narayana Murthy posted three books she plans to read this month. Her selection spans various genres and subjects, ranging from a fictional narrative about a woman inheriting a Rajwada in Mahabaleshwar to a factual account of one of the largest financial frauds of the 21st century.

Here’s a glimpse of Sudha Murty’s July reading list:

“In The Shadow Of Inheritance” by Manjiri Prabhu, dubbed as a “haunting love story” by publisher Penguin, follows Tara who inherits the Khanolkar Rajwada in Mahabaleshwar and unravels dark secrets, including her father’s murder.

Sudha Murty offers a contrasting view of the book: “The story centers on Sonia Rai inheriting a Bavarian estate, where she discovers family secrets and hidden dangers.”

“And Pine For What is Not” by Sunita Deshpande is a memoir capturing the life of the Indian writer, tracing her journey from student revolutionary to stage performer, writer, and educational administrator. The memoir explores themes of relationships, unfulfilled desires, and identity through interconnected stories.

“Billion Dollar Whale” by Tom Wright and Bradley Hope narrates the true tale of Jho Low, a Malaysian businessman and fugitive accused of embezzling US$4.5 billion from 1MDB. Sudha Murty describes the book as detailing Low’s orchestration of one of the largest financial frauds in history, exposing a global corruption network involving Malaysia’s sovereign wealth fund.
