Propaganda to malice Modi government in guise of explaining words meaning
Reviewed in India on 11 September 2020
If one see front page and theme of this book by reading index, it is obvious to guess that book would be about etymology and some interesting story behind the great world of words.. inst it ? However it is not just a book of words for hard core & shrewd politician like Mr Tharoor. He took every opportunity to malign and color poorly the current government. I found it over-smart and unethical to put political agenda when one write book, which is likely to be read by our future generations. Need proof ? see the selection of words - Lynch, Xenophobia etc.. For "Xenophobia" word, after talking about Bangladeshi refugee and indicating govt has no will to support them ( Really !! Do you want to ?) it ends with line - "This is where we in India find ourselves today" ie raise voice against Xenophobic leadership..
