India Rising tries to chronicle India, alongside its convulsions. It is a collection of anecdotes and observations of the significant events that marked the decade of Congress Party rule under Manmohan Singh, culminating in the rise of Modi. It is built around the access the writer enjoyed with some of the key decision-makers of the time. It is targeted at the person who has a general idea of India and perhaps is curious to know more. The reader is invited to begin anywhere because the chapters are very nearly self-contained – like the traditional Indian village community that only needed to reach out of its territory for salt and matrimonial alliances.
