I just finished reading the story of a strong and ambitious female leader by an equally strong and ambitious writer, Shutapa Paul. This book is extremely relevant in the present times and therefore is a must read. One of the great things about this book is that it does not assume that the reader is a newcomer to the Indian political milieu, so the narrative is fast and engaging. I don’t think that this book is meant to praise and raise one political party over another. But it does celebrate women in political leadership and gives the reader an insight into how a student leader became a regional champion and worked to become a formidable Minister. An excellent read and looking forward to more gems from the author.
