PS : This book is collection of articles written for Indian Express.
However, this Book has to be read in the context of not just as a book of record, but that of an Opposition leader, as is evident from the title itself . There are always three sides to a political story, the government's, the opposition's and the truth..
While many of the opinions and suggestions are indeed constructive which the government can take note of, many of the notions put forth by him such as the so called anti-national branding by members of the ruling party seem to be without any basis and just bald assertions.
While he candidly admits certain misgivings of the UPA government which he was part of which is laudable, he conspicuously turns a blind eye and offers no explanations regarding the failures of the earlier congress governments.
Overall, this book is definitely a must read if you're a political observer, a reporter/researcher, a young student/professional who reads both sides of the story and then forms his opinions.
Call it opposition rambling all you may, but being a pro-bjp supporter myself, you cant ignore some of the things stated in this book !
I thoroughly enjoyed a read and hope you do too !!

In future when people will look back, they will see what mistakes the government did, at that time they all will realize the importance of this book
It resembles in quality with the last 5 year of UPA exploitation and corruption.
