It is a must read for the people of India or to say for Indian youngsters, who wants to bring a positive and drastic change in India. It tells a statistical & factual story of current Indian state and facts behind Indian fallout in credit ratings of prominent credit agencies like International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Standard & Poor (S & P). Moreover, it also tells about the collateral damages from such financial fallout.
The Diplomat turned author has clearly mentioned the everlasting damages of coalition governments as unavailability of required bills such as NCTC, education, and bills for ensuring total security of our borderlines. The author has shown that slow motion policies of governments at Delhi are boosting the confidence of its hostile neighbors and tended them to behead two Indian soldiers for the first time in history.
Apart from crisis, the writer also put light on our success story of becoming the largest functioning democracy in the world. The book tells about the efforts of early country leaders like Jawahar Lal Nehru in bringing stability, prosperity, and strength in India. Later on, the author took a big leap and reached on country’s most significant decision of Mr. Manmohan Singh (as Finance Minister in P.V. Narsimha Rao Government) of making India an open economy. However, the author did not mention the efforts of other national leaders like first home minister of India “Sardar Ballabh Bhai Patel” and Ex. Prime Minister of India “Atal Bihari Bajpai” in bringing several Indian dynasties under one tricolor and strengthening the nation with nuke power.
Later on, the book answers the questions like why Muslims live in India when a new nation made especially for them. Here are comments of great Indian leaders like Jawahar Lal Nehru as “We have a Muslim minority, which is so large in numbers, they cannot, even if they want to, go anywhere else, and they have got to live in India. This is the basic fact, about which we cannot have any argument”. While reading the book, you will also get to know the reason behind inducement of leftism in India, especially in a prominent University of India.
My Experience as an Avid Reader
The author has certainly conducted a hard core research to conclude the contradictory facts about India and nation building facts of this nation. Like an experienced diplomat, he didn’t leave a single scope for controversy and tended youngsters to rely on the fact that the concurrent nation’s achievements are due to early nation leader’s hardcore efforts. The fact I like the most that the author has put a finger straight to the good and bad of current Indian state.
