Candid and fascinating, Bird in a Banyan Tree is the account of Bina Ramani’s tumultuous journey through life.

Fashion designer, entrepreneur, restaurateur, social worker, agony aunt, visionary, socialite - many labels have been applied to Bina Ramani. But what is her real story? From arriving as a refugee child in India during partition to having Binatone, a successful electronics brand, named after her; from a nine-year-old sitting on her favourite black rock, watching the waves and weaving dreams in Mumbai, to a passionate relationship with screen idol Shammi Kapoor; from a loveless marriage and a bitter divorce, to opening her own stores and changing the face of Delhi’s Hauz Khas Village; from searching for her daughters across continents, to being taken in police custody and sent to tihar Jail for being a stubbornly honest witness; from being vilified by the media to being lauded by the country for her heroic role in the Jessica Lal murder case - in this inspiring, no-holds-barred memoir, Bina tells it all.
