Sanjaya Baru Í 6 Characters

Tionship unraveled while giving us a riveting look at Indian politics as it happened behind the scenes Capturing the heady early days of UPA 1 to the high noon of the nuclear deal The Accidental Prime Minister is one of the most important and intimate accounts of the prime minister and UPA 1.

Lead India down a new path As Singh’s ‘eyes and ears’ and self appointed ‘conscience keeper’ Baru saw the transformation of Manmohan Singh from technocrat to politician In his account he tells his story of what it was like to ‘manage’ public opinion for Singh and how their rela. A very good and mostly accurate memoir of a journalist turned media advisor to the only Congress Prime Minister to serve two full terms hailing from a Non Nehru Gandhi familyIt s a very tricky book to write considering how it isn t a swansong or even a work of hatred The author was mostly balanced and tried to remain objective in judging the Prime Minister and others Good read for people who would like to read about the inner workings of South Block and who want to know about the behind the scenes of Nuke deal
