Product description

Review

Sitapati's great strength as a writer is that, on the one hand, his early career as a journalist allows him to write in very readable prose and style, picking anecdotes (that the churlish would call gossip) that add colour to prose; on the other hand, his scholarly training as a student of law and political science enables him to contextualise his story within a wider framework informed by a reading of contemporary history. It is this combination that made his biography of Prime Minister Narasimha Rao, Half Lion, so readable and a best-seller, and it is this that makes Jugalbandi also so readable. It will, presumably, also be a best-seller. -- The Wire ― -

The book is a wonderful, must-read addition to a scholarly, objective study of the saffron phenomenon. -- Swarajya magazine ― -

Brilliant researched and fascinating book.. if you are interested in politics you need to read this book. -- Barkha Dutt ― -

4.0 out of 5 stars A well researched analogy.
By Govind Raj on 16 December 2020
An intriguing piece. Subtle and well researched. The book gives you an analogy between the present government and Vajpayee-Advani rule. Gives the reader a retrospective picture of the events after independence, turbulences and transgressions during the congress regime.
