Lucknow Boy: A Memoir by mehta vinod|author;-English-Viking-Hardcover (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.334

Lucknow Boy: A Memoir is an autobiography of the journalist and Editor of Outlook magazine, Vinod Mehta. It charts his journey from the streets of Lucknow to the higher echelons of India’s major media agencies.

Summary of the Book

An authority in the media circles, Vinod Mehta, journalist and Editor of Outlook magazine, presents his life through a candid and scandalous account in his autobiography, Lucknow Boy: A Memoir.  
 
The book contains several interesting accounts, starting from incidents in his younger days to his interactions with celebrities from different spheres like business, politics, the entertainment industry and the media. It has several interesting anecdotes and crisp word sketches of celebrities like Shobha De, Sonia Gandhi and Salman Rushdie.

The story starts in the city of Lucknow, where Mehta grew up with his family members, who were refugees from Pakistan. The book provides an interesting account of his time in Britain, when Mehta’s journalistic interests were fueled by English newspapers like The New Statesman, The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph.

It then charts his return to Bombay, and his stint as the editor of Debonair, an Indian version of Playboy. Mehta also explains his early efforts in establishing The Sunday Observer and Outlook, while slowly turning into one of the most influential personalities in journalistic circles.

Thanks to his decades of experience in the journalistic field, his autobiography holds a treasure chest of interesting instances that add spice to the book. He also shares his valuable insights and experience, providing tips for aspiring editors and journalists.

Reflects the editor's personality. Very interesting and pacy.

Thumbs up to Vinod Mehta for such a well written work. But I suspect he is a BJP basher and biased towards the Congress. He chose not to change this perception.

Vinod , You the man !

Lightly written without much self delusion - a must buy for any aspiring journo or a person looking for refreshing entertainment. The best parts are about his relations with other journos,politicians etc

retard

Utter bullcrap of delusional retard named vinod mehta. He needs to get his mind checked. There is a reason that his outlook is destroyed. He has always been a congi stooge and will always remain a congi stooge.
I advice readers to not read this unless you want your brains fried in an oven of delusional ramblings.

Read it, if you are a Vinod Mehta Fan

If you are a fan of Mr. Mehta, then this book is a must read. Though, personally I would have liked a little more of him in this book, but ultimately, you can't put all your life's event in a book. It's not humanly possible. I specially liked the part where he tells about his life in Lucknow and... (View complete review)

Nice stuff

Mehta's writing is fluid. His previous book, Mr Editor, how close are you to the PM? didn't disappoint, and this won't disappoint fans either. This isn't recommended for readers looking for the inner workings of the press-political relationship. Mehta is too decent ??? or discreet, depending on y... (View complete review)
