    Description
    The Raja of Teekra, a dusty and forgotten kingdom near Lucknow, gets lucky when the British Resident visits him but also brings with him a leading revolutionary. The Raja enters India's struggle for freedom and is rewarded with a berth in the cabinet of free India. He is shocked to see the ministers and officers living and operating like their imperial masters but is suitably rewarded for his silence. As he begins to enjoy the good life of Lutyens' Delhi, the British capital which India's freedom fighters abhorred, he faces only one adversary in his plans-his journalist son Pratap. A novel that will blow you away with its depiction of love, passion, intrigue and betrayal.

The book while exposing them also gives food for thought regarding the plight of the common man who till this day yearns for a proper roof over his hea...

    Amazing fictional account of betrayal in Independent India

    "A Piece of the Giant' is Anupam Srivastava's first novel after being a journalist for leading newspapers in India for many years. When I read the novel, I was amazed by the writer's clear understanding of the history of modern India and his ability to weave a story that unravels a saga of betrayal, deception and duplicity of India's ruling class in post-indendent India. The novel comes at a time when the people of India have registered their anguish and have been up in arms over issues of co...
