    Description
    The two brothers had fought over many issues, but what sometimes got lost in the din of the battle cries was a simple fact: much of the tussle was over India's natural resources, about how the resources were intended to be mined, marketed and monetised.' Paranjoy Guha Thakurta shows how the simmering controversy over the rich natural gas reserves in the Krishna-Godavari Basin boiled over into a primetime storm on gas pricing involving the office of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas as well as the Prime Minister's Office, even as he introduces new dimensions to it. While many reasons have been attributed to the split in the powerful Indian business family, the Ambanis, this book argues that the battle between the Ambani brothers was largely about wresting control over reserves of natural gas that are below the ocean bed along the basin of the two greatest rivers of southern India. With painstaking research, a meticulous perusal of press reports, as well as a few surprising exclusives, Gas Wars highlights cases of crony capitalism that allowed the Reliance group to blatantly exploit loopholes which were consciously retained in the system to benefit it. Even as the book tells the story of how the country's largest corporate conglomerate has benefited from the way government policies are structured, it lays bare the alarming facts of a natural disaster waiting to happen due to the ruthless exploitation of the country's natural resources in order to swell the fortunes of a few.

    Very helpful

    This book actually clears the image of Reliance, Reliance Industries, Reliance Communication and mainly of that Reliance which is making profits by selling the nation. They're doing what is called White Corruption. No one even scientists, reformers, uncorrputed bureaucrats, etc. are raising a voice over it. The land subsidence is happening before their eyes but the Committee tells "NO RELATION WITH DRILLING IN KG BASIN". What Reliance is doing can be termed a Crime without proof with legitimacy.

    Must Read

    The book is one of its kind, joining the dots of news we have heard about Ambani Brother's Feuds, KG D6 Gas Pricing and Political up-downs, the book is an account of a real life thriller that was being played in front of your eyes and you just missed it!

    Thanks Flipkart too!

    Outstanding book

    It is an extremely meticulously and painstakingly researched book which presents how the nexus between politics, big business, and bureaucracy operates. The detailed documentation is pretty close to mind-boggling.

    Worth reading and strongly recommended for any and every one who is curious about how oligarchies develop and function, particularly in the privatisation of national natural resources. Very relevant in the light of the recent coal-gate judgment by the Supreme Court.
