    Description

    Narendra Modi: The Man, The Times presents the author’s perspective of Narendra Modi and the events and decisions that govern his life.

    Summary Of The Book

    Narendra Modi: The Man, The Times explores the intriguing personality of Narendra Modi, the man who seems to be in contention to represent BJP in the race for the post of the next Prime Minister of India. Narendra Modi is a name that can always be counted on to raise passions. He is either demonized or admired, vilified or worshipped. Each camp gets heated as it puts forward its own arguments to support its views.

    Narendra Modi: The Man, The Times is one more such attempt. The author traces Modi’s life from his young days, to his initiation into the RSS and his gradual rise to his current status. The author travelled throughout Gujarat and interviewed many people who are directly or indirectly related in some way to Modi. He has gathered information about Modi’s childhood days, his taste in clothing, and his initial days in the RSS and BJP as a junior member.

    As a young child, he supplemented his father’s income by selling tea, and started in politics by working for a local leader, taking part in rallies, shouting slogans, and waving flags. The book says he gave up his family and wife to further his political ambitions. It cites his hardline views during the Gujarat riots as the reason for his popularity and larger than life image.

    The book also goes into some details like Modi’s preferences in clothing, his distinctive kurtas which has led to a lucrative line of business selling Modi Kurtas, in the tradition of Nehru jackets. Modi also likes designer fountain pens and watches, but is a frugal diner. He is tech savvy and has a good cyber presence with Facebook and Twitter profiles.

    Narendra Modi: The Man, The Times is an effort to delve into the man’s personality and character, to examine the factors that has made him who he is now. The book analyzes his government’s performance over the years and tries to explain the reasons for the conflicting views about him.

    This book is only for Modi haters

    I bought this book thinking it would discuss the most popular politician in the country in a politically neutral manner. But the writer Nilanjan Mukhopadhyay cannot hide his bias and his seething hatred for Narendra Modi, and his contempt and distatste for those members of the public who admire Modi and support BJP. If one goes by the writer's arguments, it is a sin to admire Modi or support BJP - indeed it is a crime which merits the harshest punishment. Only evil doers or morons can support...

    MODI or UN-MODI

    this book is anti modi. the writer has left ethos and values of writing professionals to gutters. one person needs to express his neutrality in words by showing the real intent and then going on to express views which may also be negative. but in this case author has only showcased his intent to write biased remarks without study in contrast. there is freedom of speech but this kind of writing causes waste of time.
    Modi seems to be a good leader and he has lot many laurels to his name and gre...

    Someone please the author to stop writing his opinion in the name of biography

    I have never felt like throwing a book in the garbage bin after the second chapter. But this one sure is going there. A must never read book
    Narendra Modi : The man The Time by Nilanjan Mukhopadhyay

    Even if I ignore the biased opinion of the writer and putting his views in the book not to mention the 'Is, I cannot ignore the fact that the book is written like a episode of Sansani. Giving a highlight and saying it will be discussed in detail after a while. Also, there is no order of events, ...

    Less of a biography, more of random ramblings

    The task of a biographer who chooses to narrate the life of a living politician is very difficult. He has to stick to the subject without deviating too much and refraining from analysing the political ideology at the cost of the subject at hand. This is the reason why people read biographies. Well, this book overdoes what is not to be done at the cost of what should have been done.

    It is a boring account of what the author THINKS about Modi and his politics. Complete subjectivity. I have no ...

    This author is a complete baseless guy. One who doesnt even know what a good govt is supposed to do, and calls him a journalist, I dont know about the readers, but this guy is a cronie of sonia, and congress has paid for this book.
    To maligh modi, coz congress is scared of him, because the youth of india are with NaMo, and they cant control the youth uprising,.

    Hopeless book.

    100% agree with all reviews written above. I wish i had read these reviews before i purchased the book.
    The book clearly gives only the opinion of the author rather than the biography of Mr. Modi.
    This was one of the first books on NaMo and being a huuge fan of Modi, i bought this book.

    However, the author just fills pages with some random crap and has written his experiences with people whom he spoke to in Gujarat who hate Modi.

    Pathetic book. waste of money, waste of time.

    Biggest Waste of time.

    this writer had 2 resources, 1 was a 1.5hr long interview with modi and google! He googled every news piece about modi and BJP, and compiled it in this book.

    No Insight. No Research.

    Dont buy it. Period.
