  • Description
    The first authorized biography of Soli Sorabjee 'A gripping life story of a Goliath who strode the Indian legal canvass for nearly seventy years.' - Mukul Rohatgi, former Attorney General of India 'Superbly researched, this book by Abhinav Chandrachud is a must read. ' - Madhavi Goradia Divan, Additional Solicitor General in the Supreme Court of India How does a Parsi lawyer, deeply influenced by the principles of Roman Catholicism, fall in love with a Bahá'í and go on to become the Attorney General of India for a Hindu nationalist BJP government? How does a boy with a broken leg, who studied in a Gujarati-medium school, and lost his father at the age of nineteen, go on to mount a heroic defense of the Janata government's decision to dissolve Congress state legislatures (in 1977) in the Supreme Court? How does a newspaper columnist who admires Nehru, who criticizes the BJP for being 'obsessed' with 'demolishing mosques' and advises them to replace 'Hindutva' with 'Bharatva' or 'Indianness', get chosen by Prime Minister Vajpayee to represent the government in the Supreme Court in many cases, including the Ayodhya case? How does a lawyer with a humdrum customs and excise law practice, whose grandfather sold horsedrawn carriages in Bombay, become a U.N. human rights rapporteur, and repeatedly defend the fundamental right to free speech and expression in the Supreme Court of India? Definitive, comprehensive and absolutely unputdownable, this first biography of Soli Sorabjee opens a window into the life and times of one of India's foremost constitutional experts.
