  • Description
    When P.V. Narasimha Rao became the unlikely prime minister of India in 1991, he inherited economic crisis, violent insurgencies and a nation adrift. Despite being unloved by his people, mistrusted by his party, a minority in Parliament, and ruling under the shadow of 10 Janpath, Rao reinvented India, at home and abroad. With exclusive access to Rao's never-before-seen personal papers as well as over a hundred interviews, this definitive biography provides new revelations on the Indian economy, nuclear programme, foreign policy and the Babri Masjid. Meticulously researched and honestly told, this landmark political biography is a must-read for anyone interested in the man responsible for transforming India.

    Just wow!

    I just finished reading the book and I'd recommend it to anybody who's interested in reading about port independence India.
    This book runs from the 50s up to the 2000s with a strong focus on the early 90s. It explains the role of the protagonist fairly objectively.
    Overall it was a good read for me.

    An eye opener

    This book is a landmark one. Few books on India's political leaders have the gripping effect that this one has. There are so many things that we didn't know about our country which was in tradition with Rao at helm during the early 90s. A must read for all those who are curious about the real story behind Liberalisation, Babri and the new foreign policy.

    Mind-blowing purchase

    Must must must read book about the most underrated Prime Minister of India.One thing which comes out of this book is the fact that Congress party and Indian public has been very unkind to PV Narsimha Rao.

    Every Indian's must read.

    PV a forgotten hero and his contributions to India are clearly brought out in this book. The author has done an objective job without idolizing PV but also clearing many misconceptions regarding him. Every Indian should read this book to honor the true sons of this soil.
