Read from July 11 to September 20, 2013

A great book to read if you want to know about the politics of Bihar and how it has shaped up since JP movement days. Although the book has been written with Nitish Kumar as the protagonist, we get to see different shades of Lalu as well. None of the stories about Bihar can be complete without Lalu. The book talks about how Nitish Kumar has changed the caste based politics of Bihar to caste based development politics :P. It has a feel of projecting Nitish Kumar as the emancipator.But,we end up seeing Nitish Kumar as one of the most intelligent politicians of his time.
Overall a good read...:)
