Product description


" ‘A probe into Narendra Modi’s failures…’ -The Hindu

‘Tharoor echoes the sentiments of the many who oppose Modi, but does so with academic rigour.’
- The Week

‘It deserves to be read, as much to get a grip on Modi and his brand of muscular nationalism, as to visualise an India that is compassionate, fair to all, and builds on its strengths.’
- The Hindu Business Line

‘The Paradoxical Prime Minister deserves credit for scrutinising the actions of a ruling Prime Minister, focusing on how, according to the author, there is a gap between what he said and what he achieved…’

‘In all the chapters, divided into five sections: The Paradoxical Prime Minister, The Modification of India, Moditva and Misgovernance, The Failure of Modinomics and Flights of Fancy, Tharoor has left no stone unturned to make every chapter an interesting one with a lot of behind the scene drama and on and off conversations.’
-Free Press Journal

‘The book will make the reader question the functioning of the present government from almost all sides of the prism when reading with political neutrality.’
-Youth Ki Awaaz " --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
