Sort order. Feb 16, Sarath Krishnan added it. Sep 21, Naresh rated it it was amazing. Very inspiring story of one of the historical leaders of india.
Anand gave a nice narrative of ground realities of Indian politics, and how some people can go any length for power and dirty games they play for their benefits.
At the same time, honest people like Anand have to fight so hard to overcome the challenges put forth by his enemies in political field. He also talks about transformation of india post independence and the challenges the country faced.

Some suggest the depth of malaise is slightly exaggerated, which might be true. But in the end, it changes your perspective about politics. Jul 18, Raghav Tanaji rated it really liked it.
I could eulogize him for hours, for he has written in such a simple language. The twists and turns of Human nature, the power politics. How can one person stand on his ideology, when every one is against him. Sep 23, Madan rated it it was amazing. He did so at a time when the rupee was in freefall and the current account deficit was burgeoning even as inflation too refused to be tamed.
His tenure saw a marked improvement on all three parameters so much so that India almost returned a current account surplus last month debating the merits and demerits of THAT is beyond the scope of this review.
Not satisfied with this, though, he set about creating a market economy style financial structure in India. He fought the good fight but had evidently picked the wrong one and a campaign was launched to present him as too outspoken for India's good of all the possible crimes!
Why this lengthy preface to a review on an autobiographical novel penned by former Prime Minister the late P V Narasimha Rao? You shall see why when you read the book. Without spoiling it for you - and in any case I believe the book will appeal more to people who have read up on Rao's background - let me just say that the book brings out the problems involved in crusading against 'the system' in India. The system may have taken the form of landlords in an earlier agri-dominated era; today it takes the form of industrialists.
But a somewhat feudalistic and elitist system some may argue that somewhat is an understatement! This in my view is the essence of The Insider. It is NOT about liberalisation, be warned.
Which does not make it any less interesting. And Rao's wonderful style, his dry wit bringing LeCarre to mind at times, makes this gargantuan pager a breezy read. A question that troubled me throughout the book and still haunts me is what happened overnight to the freedom fighters - many of whom populated governments at the Centre as well as States at the time - due to which they lost sight of the nation building project that a few like Nehru were very much focused on?
I understand the onset of cynicism among subsequent generations but the book does not, to my mind, explain the reasons behind the metamorphosis of those fervent patriots who valiantly fought for our independence. Or perhaps it does and I need to read it one more time to locate the answer.
As you can see, this is not a criticism of the book but an indication of the depth of the issues it raises. It does not matter whether Rao was right about what all he wrote in this epic or whether he was entirely biased and intent on decorating himself. What matters is the questions he raised therein remain pertinent and unresolved in a country that moans for change but is generally quick to bury the lone crusader who dares to be the change.
With the exception of Gandhi but hey we shot him dead too! View 1 comment. Jul 23, Sushma Syam rated it really liked it. This semi-autobiographical account brings forth many incidents from the time of independence, Nehru's strong hold on the nation, internal congress conflicts to Indira's struggle, rise and fall, the emergence of Indian foreign policy, the state and central policies, Afrozabad being the protogonist's home state, his own humble beginnings along with the greatest events that determined the course of our nation.
