GUWAHATI, Sept 20 - �The heart-rending stories of victims and the unfolding saga of misery unleashed by the greed of a few marauders who manipulate individuals, families, societies and nations using them as sacrificial lambs at the altar of greed, moved the journalist in me,� said senior journalist Aruna Ravikumar during the regional launch of her book Marauders of Hope here on Thursday.
This book is based on the multi-level marketing scams and talks about why they happened and unfolds remedial measures to stop the cancerous growth of dubious multinational corporations that are quick at feeding off people, hungry to make quick money.
Marauders of Hope is about the unconcealed greed of companies and individuals who reap a rich harvest through fraudulent financial schemes that are a recipe for disaster. It is also about political patronage and failure of different regulatory and enforcement authorities to contain illegal forces.
�If it inspires readers to don their thinking caps, the effort may have been well worth it,� said the writer.
