Atal Bihari Vajpayee – the name says it all. And how about an insight into the life of such a stalwart? Must be an enthralling one. At least the title of the 300-odd-page thick biography suggests so. And why it shouldn’t be! It is about one of the most coveted as well as one of the most controversial political figures the history of Indian politics has come across.
The Untold Vajpayee: Politician and Paradox by NP Ullekh has managed to cover all that has grabbed the headlines and all that hasn’t. From the controversial speech in Assam which addressed even the ‘Bangladeshi Foreigners’ to his utmost love for food, from the influence of communism in his life to the hot and cold relationship with his party leaders, the book covers every minute detail that one would love to know about such a unswerving political figure.
With some astute interviews and some archival Photographs this is one such book which one cannot afford to miss out, even if one is not an ardent follower of politics. And if politics is your daily fodder, this one is a must-have.
So grab your own copy before the bookstores run out of stock. Don’t be late. Otherwise you might just miss out on an opportunity to come across one of the most desirable characters in Indian politics.
