    Description
    Narendra Modi is a paradoxical man. He says one thing and does another. He gives voice to a number of liberal ideas (such as the constitution being his holy book, and sab ka saath, sab ka vikas), while at the same time pandering to some of the most illiberal elements in Indian society, on whom he depends for political support. Another paradox is how a Prime Minister who prides himself on effective governance has, through his silence, appeared to condone the worst aspects of misgovernance-communal riots, lynchings, the violence of gau-rakshaks and so on. A third paradox is his talk of soaring ambitions for the country when his government's performance is underwhelming.

    So who is the real Narendra Modi? A noble, selfless leader who acts effectively in the interests of all his countrymen or an autocratic, right-wing bigot who is interested only in power and converting plural India into a Hindu Rashtra? Or something in between?

    This brilliant study of Modi and the effect he has had on our country answers these and other questions about a leader who is reviled and worshipped in equal measure. The book is divided into five sections comprising fifty chapters. The first section takes a close look at Modi's life and times. The other four sections look at key aspects of the way in which Modi's government functions and the lasting and often deleterious impact it has had on Indian society, major institutions, the economy, foreign policy and our fundamental values.

    Using years of close observation, personal encounters with Modi, considerable scholarship, a deep understanding of Indian politics, and an insider's view of the way in which government functions. Shashi Tharoor has stitched together a compelling portrait of this paradoxical figure. Never before has there been such a superbly written and devastatingly accurate account of the most controversial prime minister India has ever had.

    Classy product

    One of the finest books by Shashi Tharoor. Although he has criticised PM Modi for his some of the policies, but he has also supported some of them. With highly impressive flow and words, it has done the best a politician can write...👍👍

    Worst and nonsense.

    The book is highly biased in character. Congress rule was a worthless rule in India for 10 years and what is just the point in criticising BJP. Tharoor must look both the points not just based on congress ideology. I din't expect this from Tharoor.

    Nice

    Fake British accent and using difficult english words does not make you an intellectual. As you can see How much does he hate PM Modi, Shashi chose very arrogant Title of this book "...Narendra Modi and His India." All Modi haters, Urban Naxals, Congress Piddis & Ghulams will love this book.
    Shashi Tharoor's previous work 'Why I Am Hindu' was good.

    As the author mentioned in the text " its not stating black and white " means not drawing Pm as good or bad. Clearly stating the impact of Pm's decision and its implementation. Ahould read it.
