Pavan C. Lall Books & Biography
Pavan C. Lall was born in Calcutta, West Bengal and sent to board at St Paul's School, Darjeeling at an early age, after which he pursued writing in the United States. Graduating from West Texas A&M University, he gained his first exposure to captains of industry while working with Dallas Business Journal. With the passing of his father, P. C. Lall of Nazargunj, an erstwhile princely state in Bihar, he returned to India. That started a new chapter where he blended his experience of dealing with both Eastern and Western egos and sharpened his skills at wresting the truth out of the increasing number of billionaires India had produced. His first book, Flawed: The Rise and Fall of Diamond Mogul Nirav Modi, was written when he discovered that such stories did not always add up. Lall has also written for Fortune India, Business Standard and the Telegraph, among others.
