The Insider (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.697

Published in the year 1998, The Insider is a fictional novel that provides the readers with insights into the way politics works in India, through the eyes of former Prime Minister, P. V. Narasimha Rao.

Summary Of The Book

The Insider provides the readers with a great deal of insight into the often shocking, and heart-rending truth about the political scenario in India. In this book, Rao has incorporated several personal experiences in the political arena. The plot revolves around a young man named Anand, who gives up his career to bring about political reform. This story is set in a fictional state, called Afrozabad, which is based on Hyderabad.

Anand begins his political career by opposing the oppressing rule in Afrozabad. When Anand achieves success in his political party, he’s placed in a spot where he needs to choose between Chief Minister Mahendranath, and his rival, Chaudhary. In time to come, Chaudhary becomes the Chief Minister, and Anand is made a minister under him. During his time as a Minister, Anand carries on an affair with Aruna, a legislator. After the two break up, Anand moves to Delhi after the political reins are handed down to Indira Gandhi.

Under the governance of Gandhi, Chaudhary is replaced by Anand, who becomes the Chief Minister of Afrozabad. After trying to pass a bill that was the reason for Chaudhary’s dismissal, he is then made to deal with party work under Indira Gandhi. The Insider covers a number of key events in Indian politics, which include Indira Gandhi’s rise to power, her second coming, her assassination, and Rajiv Gandhi’s premiership. Towards the end, Anand chooses to retire from his political career, and is then requested to become the Prime Minister of India. The Insider tells the readers how Indian politics works, and the fact that genuine intentions are also present, despite corruption.
