As for the reference to Justice Jagmohan Sinha and V Krishna Iyer my learned friend Srinivasa Raghavan seems to have forgotten that we should not blame or praise individual justices only comment on their judgements and hence the book does not make this mistake.
Lastly, I was careful in my comments about not just the governments led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Narendra Modi but about all PMs. Readers deserve objective analysis. I differ with the reviewer that there was just “dead-pan” recounting of events in the chapters on Vajpayee and Modi since, for example, analysis of events related to the UTI scandal and growth and unemployment numbers during the terms of these two PMs respectively provide fresh perspectives.
The problem seems to be that the reviewer has strongly held personal views and the book’s research and analysis do not conform to them.
