Rahul (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.460

Rahul is a biography on Rahul Gandhi. The book covers his family history, Rahul’s achievements and failures, and tidbits from his personal life.

Summary Of The Book

Rahul, published in 2012, is a biography that presents to readers the life of Rahul Gandhi.

The book begins with the question that is bound to cross everyone's mind. Isn’t it too early to write a biography of Rahul Gandhi? The authors take readers into the history of the Nehru/Gandhi family, and show how dynasty rule has being the norm. Rahul goes back into the times of Motilal Nehru, who was succeeded by his son Jawaharlal Lal as the Congress President. The biography also elaborates on how Indira Gandhi, the daughter of Jawaharlal Lal Nehru, became India’s Prime Minister. Though Rahul’s grandmother was one of the world’s most powerful political leaders, his parents, Rajiv and Sonia, chose a life sheltered from the public glare. Eventually, Rajiv, the man who wanted to have nothing to do with politics, became the seventh Prime Minister of India.

Rahul gradually moves onto the life of Rahul Gandhi. The authors take a look at his public moves since he became active in Indian politics. Readers will have the opportunity to view a typical work day at 12 Tughlaq Lane, where Rahul conducts his official business. Furthermore, the authors also cover the trips that he has taken across India in order to reach people at the grassroots level. The biography reveals that to Rahul Gandhi the revitalising of the Indian Youth Congress and the National Students’ Union is his most important task. Rahul is also a great way to learn more about the life of this man when he is away from the media glare.

The authors have not only focused on Gandhi’s achievements, but have also critically analyzed his inability to resolve issues, his poor track record as a Member of Parliament, and his tactics of trying to evade answering tough questions. Some of the chapters in this biography are The Shaping of the Personality, The Dalit Agenda, and Youth Express.

The authors have written a well balanced biography, with a lucid and interesting narrative. Rahul has been written after consultations with parliamentarians, political leaders, and close associates of Rahul. This book will certainly bring to light how Rahul Gandhi’s actions will affect the lives of average Indians, sooner or later.

A horrible book with Bad Motto

Writing a book on Rahul Gandhi was not exactly a magical idea. Rahul is a political Leader who has achieved nothing significant yet. And the author has failed to reveal any good insights abouts the allegations put forward by Dr. Subramaniam Swamy.

A better way to invest your money is to buy Abhinav Bindra's "A shot at History"...He unlike Rahul has done a lot for the country.

Rahul by Jatin Gandhi

At least one thing is for sure..so far Rahul Gandhi has not shown that either he is a people's person or that he has a strong intellectual or political acumen. Barring few dramatic appearances (noida case) and disappearances (after he is taken in so called custody)he has not done much. His views on burning issues are sketchy and ill-formed. He has mood swings and is not able to speak articulately (case in point is his reply on his speech in Parliament during Janlokpal agitation in Delhi) to media except when they are singing paeans in his praise. He has I believe nothing to show except his... ()

Real analysis!!!

First of all, through out the reading, I was pondering, with what motto this book is written. Is the subject worth enough to write about? I mean there is no other motto apart from money to write on such personalities such as Rahul Gandhi and Sidhhartha Malya(Vijay Malya's heir).

They have not achieved or even do not show any prospects that in future they can achieve something worth talking, leave apart writing a book on them.

I think such subjects are worth only when you are in transit and dont have access to anything better than this.

I would have considered it an average read, even if...

I would have considered it an average read, even if the writer would have cleared the conscience on the allegations about the subject.

Please dont waste time and intellect on such books. We should really discourage this practise to write about the hot cakes which is nothing but a bitter loaf after settling down.

This book is sham!

"And how will he tackle his new responsibilities as his mother, Sonia Gandhi, makes way for him?"

India is a democratic country. Which means that mother cannot "make way" for the son to become PM. And that mother got to be the top person of Congress only because she was Rajiv Gandhi's wife. In no way these 2 facts are democratic!

So no matter what *facts* the authors present, the idea of the book itself is wrong. Oh and by the way real *facts* about Rahul are available on the internet for anyone to read.

I wish i could give negative stars

Total waste of money and time.
On the other hand this book of Navin Gulia (In quest of last Victory) in the same section (Autobiography) has hit the best seller button. Not having born with Silver Spoon like Mr Rahul Gandhi and meeting with fatal accident while undergoing training at Indian Military Academy, rendering him totally paralysed, he overcame all odds to become a WINNER. Must read for biography lover. His book has got maximum 5 Star rating in History of FLIPKART.

Writing stoops at its lowest level!

Why cannot the biography of my buildings watchman be published?
At least he has earned a job and that too without a dynastic influence, which puts him on a much higher platform than a royal baby haggling for a toy named PMO!
