    You wont find a crispier story of Indian politics!

    Mandate is simply a tale of Indian politics from 1970s to the early 2000s, sans views, opinions or unnecessary gyaan about its impact. And that’s the very beauty of this book. It’s a ready key to knowing the people, events and forces that contributed to the creation of the country we live in today.

    Not the best but worth a read

    Mandate - Will of the People is worth a read for the uninitiated in India politics. Vir Sanghvi, a seasoned journalist uses his own life experiences and interviews to weave a narrative that is gripping and lucid. The book definitely is not an eye-opener for politics-fans but surely will help the new generation get a hint of the history of modern India.

    Full review up on my blog.

    A decent attempt

    The book deals with the history of Indian politics, covering the time frame of 1971-2014. The book is a kind of political journey that carries striking revelations. Reveals the surprising facts about prominent personalities that we never knew.

    The book is for those who have interest in Indian politics but they don't know much or haven't followed the Indian politics.

    The best thing about this book is that it is a fast-paced read, and it can be an interesting read for you even if you do not h...

    Title does not go very well with the content. But I am least bothered. Book is great.

    I may sound biased. But I am ardent fan of Mr. Sanghvi. He used to write on weekly basis in The Hindustan Times. He has stopped that. I was desperately searching for his writings. "Mandate" came as a pleasant surprise.
    Thanks flipkart.

    A Decent Read

    Politics is something that very much piqued the interest of common people. This intricate game which doesn't follow a set of rules is sure to have a lot of clandestine incidents and affairs in store- most of the times we think in this way. Vir Sanghvi's 'Mandate: Will of the People" is an ideal read for those who want to have a take on India's recent political history without spending much time.

    The book unveils many a thing that are unknown to even politically conscious people. The nuts an...

    Insightful

    Insightful. Though I’ve been witness to some of the atrocities committed by the Indira Gandhi regime during the Emergency as a child, I was not aware of some of the facts mentioned by the author in the book. They were a revelation. Another thing that I found interesting is the insight into the weaknesses/ unknown traits of some of the well known figures in Indian politics. Smt. Indira Gandhi’s oratory skills have won her many a fan both within and outside the country but how many of us are aw...
