Your weekend reading list

Here's what Sonal Dabral, managing partner, India and head of creative, Asia, Bates 141 recommends. 

“I am a voracious reader: I devour every word I lay eyes on. Be it in print or online. For the weekend, it's Straits Times, Business Times and Financial Times when I am in Singapore. And Times of India, Economic Times and loads of magazines when in India. Mashable.com and Tumblr.com are a must whenever I'm in front of a computer."
 
"Right now I'm flitting between three: Freedom, about the life of an American family, by Jonathan Franzen; The Emperor of All Maladies, a history of cancer by Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee; and India after Gandhi, a wonderful survey of our country's recent history, by Dr. Ramachandra Guha. All three are thick, so were a bit daunting to begin with but now I'm totally immersed. Highly recommended.
 
 
"Next on my list is Jerry Della Femina's 'From Those Wonderful People Who Gave You Pearl Harbour' -- published in 1971, now re-issued because it's one of the inspirations for Mad Men. Anyone in a creative profession needs to feed his or her mind with anything and everything without biases. That's why I like reading anyone and everyone from Mast Ram to Maupassant, and urge others to do the same."
