NEW DELHI, January 10, 2022 / PRNewswire / – Growing up in the sleepy towns of Bhilai and Bokaro, Arundhati Bhattacharya never imagined that one day she would become president india biggest bank. It was by chance that she learned of the entrance exam for bank probation officers through a friend. She applied, was selected and pursued a glorious banking career spanning four decades.
Indomitable is the story of Arundhati’s life as a banker and the challenges she faced in a male-dominated stronghold. She takes the reader through her childhood years and her early years of study in the 1960s, Calcutta for his college studies, then to the State Bank of India, where she started her career.
The life of a female banker with a family in a frequently transferable job is not easy. In Arundhati’s life, too, there were breaking points when she almost considered leaving her career to balance her personal aspirations with the needs of her family. But she didn’t give up. Instead, she took on her challenges with humor and positivity and took each assignment as a new chapter in learning and adapting.
In her role as chair of the SBI, she led the bank through some of its worst phases. It inspired confidence in the banking sector when the NPA crises caused a significant deficit in public confidence.

Some of its human resources initiatives included industry-driven practices that were appreciated and later adopted by other banks.
Candid, lucid and humble, Indomitable is the story that will galvanize you to meet challenges, break down barriers, move forward and reach greater heights.
âFrom an early age I listened to many older people talk about migration to the western world as it was defined as ‘the land of your dreams.’ It was first the UK and then United States and Canada and then Australia and Singapore. I have often wondered why India could not become the land of his dreams. But I was told in India things only work if you know people. That capital was scarce and that the multiple barriers to living one’s dreams allowed nothing but a worldly existence for people coming from small towns without support or background.
Did that mean people like me couldn’t dream? This book is written to prove that India can be the land of our dreams and it’s our ability to reach out with the right attitude and the right ideas that will get us there. Today’s generation proves me right and I am so proud of them. So to all those who dared to dream – bravo! Hang in there and you’ll get there “, says the author, Arundhati Bhattacharya.
“Indomitable is the story of small towns, big dreams and bigger achievements. Arundhati’s journey, growing up in the sleepy towns of Bhilai and Bokaro, holding a difficult banking position and making his mark as an exceptional leader is an inspiring story that will remain etched in a reader’s mind for years to come. We are delighted and privileged to publish this book â, declares Sachin sharma, editor, HarperCollins India.
