This third book of The Jalebi Trilogy series, Corrugated Slices: The Social Jalebi is about the feelings a jalebi evokes in us. The first, Jalebi Management, brought varied ideas on how Indian industry can compete globally by creating seamless interconnections like a jalebi. The jalebi's opposite character, its unpredictable twists and turns that give it a dicey connotation isStrategic Pokes: The Business Jalebi.
Corrugated Slices: The Social Jalebi is a European way of looking at different everyday happenings. Its out-of-the-ordinary insights cover heterogeneous Indian society, be it education, religion, living conditions, films, women's issues, or political slipups while sharing and comparing Indian and international experiences in the same breath. The book has very innovative ideas-such as "Does thinking exist?"- making you relook at what you already know. The jalebi's negative-positive influence is an absolute connect with Indian and international youth. The bias toward the young generation is obvious; the book is narrated under small subheadings, making it engaging for them who have time and patience on a shoestring.

He originated the concept of Emotional Surplus delivery through creative business strategy and implementation, which provides value beyond the customer's expectations.
A French national now, Shombit started life in a refugee colony outside Kolkata in divided Bengal. He left for Paris in 1973 with US$8 in his pocket. His education at the Government College of Art and Craft, Kolkata and in Paris at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts and Ecole Superieure d'Arts Graphiques Penninghen remained incomplete due to paucity of funds and insufficient time away from livelihood earning.

From this insight, he mastered the unique art of understanding the subconscious mind.
