Penguin Random House India on Wednesday announced the acquisition of a new book by award-winning journalist and author Snigdha Poonam that gives an insight into the subculture of scams, cons and frauds in the country. The book, titled India: A Scamster Born Every Minute, will be released under Penguin's Viking imprint in 2022, the publishing house said in a statement. It proposes to navigate the sociocultural landscape of India and maps the evolution of corruption in the country. Having reported on scams of various kinds for some years now, I find that few stories capture the realities of today's India better than those revolving around fraud. A book following the trail of scams across India seemed like a natural next step. I am grateful to Penguin for the opportunity and excited to work with them once again, said Poonam, whose first book Dreamers won the 2018 'Crossword Book Award' for non-fiction. Be it widespread unemployment, rising aspirations, or a plunging economy, the book claims to uncover the reality behind fraud and deception in India
