  • Description

    Published in the year 1998, The Insider is a fictional novel that provides the readers with insights into the way politics works in India, through the eyes of former Prime Minister, P. V. Narasimha Rao.

    Summary Of The Book

    The Insider provides the readers with a great deal of insight into the often shocking, and heart-rending truth about the political scenario in India. In this book, Rao has incorporated several personal experiences in the political arena. The plot revolves around a young man named Anand, who gives up his career to bring about political reform. This story is set in a fictional state, called Afrozabad, which is based on Hyderabad.

    Anand begins his political career by opposing the oppressing rule in Afrozabad. When Anand achieves success in his political party, he’s placed in a spot where he needs to choose between Chief Minister Mahendranath, and his rival, Chaudhary. In time to come, Chaudhary becomes the Chief Minister, and Anand is made a minister under him. During his time as a Minister, Anand carries on an affair with Aruna, a legislator. After the two break up, Anand moves to Delhi after the political reins are handed down to Indira Gandhi.

    Under the governance of Gandhi, Chaudhary is replaced by Anand, who becomes the Chief Minister of Afrozabad. After trying to pass a bill that was the reason for Chaudhary’s dismissal, he is then made to deal with party work under Indira Gandhi. The Insider covers a number of key events in Indian politics, which include Indira Gandhi’s rise to power, her second coming, her assassination, and Rajiv Gandhi’s premiership. Towards the end, Anand chooses to retire from his political career, and is then requested to become the Prime Minister of India. The Insider tells the readers how Indian politics works, and the fact that genuine intentions are also present, despite corruption.

    • Pamulaparti Venkata Narasimha Rao was born in Karimnagar in the erstwhile state of Hyderabad in June 1921. After playing an active part in Hyderabad's Independence movement, he served as a Congress minister in Andhra Pradesh, and became chief minister of the state in 1971. In 1977, he was elected to the Lok Sabha, and went on to hold several cabinet posts under Indira and Rajiv Gandhi, including those of foreign minister and home minister. After Rajiv Gandhi's assassination in 1991, Rao was chosen to lead the Congress party, and became prime minister of India. Leading a minority government, Rao was the first prime minister from outside the Gandhi-Nehru family to serve out a full five-year term. His premiership is remembered for the liberalization of the Indian economy and the move towards free-market reforms. Rao resigned as Congress president after the party lost the 1996 general elections. He died in December 2004.

    Not A routine book

    A must read book,so well written you can call it a page turner,but only in the end it flattens and he finishes all in a hurry.He does not write his experiences and all as a PM,from the moment he becomes a serious player till PM all covered in 4 pages.

    But the remaining 800 pages are the main semi-fictional-biography. the internal struggle and his childhood in all makes this a good book

    Good Book to read

    This is a good book to read on politics and the happenings in India around the 19th century beginning.
    It is more of Narsimha Rao reciting his own life history with little fiction. It gives a good insight into Independence struggle, India of that period and Congress party.
