The books covers the politician landscape of Indian Central Government and Andhra Pradesh from before Independence to Te book will tell you about what everyone thought but no the leader who made the decision thought.
So crafty is Rao that he book will tell you all happenings around Indira Gandhi, without telling us about why she took the decision she took. The book exposes to some extent the depth of hypocrisies in Indian Politics. Some suggest the de A masterpiece by the master politician. 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 Insider (Rao novel) - Wikipedia
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!

He then has to run the political show under her regime. The Insider reveals to the reader the state of affairs in a political scenario, narrated by a man who has had first-hand experience of it all.
The 2nd revised edition of the book was published by Penguin India in the year , and is available in paperback. Jan — July Catalogue: July — Dec Featured Book 21 riveting stories from the battlefield about how India's highest military honour was won The Brave takes you to the hearts and minds of India's Therefore, I have no idea whether Anand, the central figure, matches Narasimha Rao in every detail". The novel was reviewed favourably by Vir Sanghvi and welcomed by Mulk Raj Anand as an attempt at recording contemporary history by the players themselves.
Plans for writing a sequel to The Insider were announced by Rao after the book hit the markets and was to have covered his term as Prime Minister. In it was announced that the sequel was at a crucial point of evolution and that it would be published soon. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The Insider Author P.
