Delhi Durbar is a book that is set in Lutyens, Delhi, and is a political thriller with an Indian flavor.

Summary Of The Book

Delhi Durbar is an astutely written and gripping novel with an outrageous amount of twists and turns that keep the reader deeply engrossed in the characters while the story unfolds in leaps and bounds in Lutyens Delhi.

Set in a place where politicians, media barons, kingmakers and bureaucrats amass wealth that is not theirs, Delhi Durbar is a book that tries to bring a parallel to the present situation in Indian politics with literature. The author delves into their lives as he shows how the aforementioned characters often get embroiled in their own deviousness.

In the story, the President of India threatens to throw off his nominal status as he attempts to invoke military rule in the country and it is up to Jasjit Sidhu, his onetime son-in-law and presently the Prime Minister’s adviser, to stop him.

Delhi Durbar follows the story of Jasjit Sidhu, who has recently returned to India after a stint as money launderer and corporate banker, to become the personal financial adviser to the Prime Minister, Paresh Yadav. Jasjit Sidhu’s character is composed as a wily and suave one as he works as a subtle enforcer. It is excellently plotted and bitingly constructed as it glides over the characters’ self serving agendas in an unforgiving and firm manner.

The book is very close to an allegory about the festering sore of Indian Politics. The story revolves around how Jasjit may have to compromise on his own rules to put paid to the President’s agenda while balancing life with his love interest. It is also a saga on the country’s administration, where everything has a price. Delhi Durbar is the second book in The Raisina Series.

A politically senstive book. But hits the nail on the spot.

KP Singh has ventured his book into the deep waters of politics which is a big No-NO for most authors. This book essentially deals with Power and the corruption that is associated with it. It exposes the fundamental working of Indian politics and shows the truth behind the workings of the worlds largest democracy.

The main propagandist is portrayed as a brilliant, suave, sleek and wily fellow who knows how to talk and how to exert pressure in subtle forms to get the job done. He is in love w...

A Wonderful Piece of Political Fiction

This is a good book for those who have even a little bit of interest in Politics. Even those who do not have an interest will get interested in Politics after reading it. A wonderful book on the line of Jeffery Archer's "FIRST AMONG EQUALS"
