He was once the King of Good Times - known for his opulent lifestyle, calendar shoots with bikini-clad models, high stakes in an IPL team, and an airline that was the last word in luxury. But the global downturn in aviation and the rising fuel prices worsened Kingfisher's financial ill health. The several thousands of crores loaned to it by a consortium of banks proved insufficient to arrest the slide in its fortunes. By early 2013, the high-flying airline shut shop and closed the doors on disgruntled employees and investors - none of which, though, made any dent in Mallya's own lifestyle as he had pilfered cash from the company and stashed it abroad. Facing charges of money laundering, misappropriation and being a wilful defaulter, Mallya left the country in 2016 for his country estate near London. Kingfizzer: The Mallya Story is the tale of how the king lost his cheer and high spirits, to be remembered for one of the biggest corporate collapses of our time.

KINGSHUK NAG (few books)

Editado por Pedro_P en 30-4-2018 10:59 AM

Atal Bihari Vajpayee: A Man for All Seasons
BY KINGSHUK NAG

From being one of the earliest members of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, Vajpayee blossomed into a leading opposition Mp by the late 1960s, went on to become External Affairs Minister in the short-lived Janata government and, finally in 1999, to head the first non-Congress government to complete a full term in office. That it was a coalition government made the feat all the more remarkable, and testifies to the fact that though wedded to a right-wing political ideology, Vajpayee did not believe in the politics of exclusion. A protégé of Jana Sangh stalwarts like Syama Prasad Mukherjee and Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, Vajpayee won the admiration of Jawaharlal Nehru, was consulted by his daughter Indira Gandhi-whom he never lacked the courage to criticize-and befriended by fiery trade unionist George Fernandes even before they became political allies. He thus displayed an unusual ability to carry along all shades of political opinion-an ability that came to the fore when he headed the National Democratic Alliance government between 1999 and 2004. And behind this public persona was an unusual personal life, conducted with such dignity as to remain free of innuendo. In this book, journalist Kingshuk Nag traces the political journey of this tall parliamentarian of over four decades, who was conferred the Bharat Ratna in December 2014. Atal Bihari Vajpayee: A Man for All Seasons is a definitive account of the life and times of one of India's most illustrious non-Congress leaders.

THE SAFFRON TIDE : BY KINGSHUK NAG

The pendulum has swung from one end to the other. If the first elections of the Indian Republic in 1951 began with the Congress party straddling like a colossus across the polity, that monopoly has been eroded over the years and has now ended completely. The BJP stormed into power in the 2014 elections with a thumping majority, becoming the only party other than the Congress to achieve this. ‘I had never expected to see this happen in my lifetime. This has happened after sixteen general elections,’ BJP MP Balbir Punj told television channels in an emotionally-choked voice, moments after the saffron surge became clear on counting day. With this win, Syama Prasad Mookerjee’s dream of the Jana Sangh becoming a national democratic alternative got fulfilled. In this election, the Hindu vote substantially deserted the Congress, whose seat tally collapsed to 45: its lowest ever tally. Nationally, the party’s vote share declined to about 19 per cent, which is only slightly higher than the population of minorities in the country. Thirty years ago in 1984, the Congress had got 415 Lok Sabha seats, almost ten times the number of seats won in 2014. The BJP had then won only two seats; in sharp contrast, this time the tally has hit 282. The Hindu vote is now commanded almost entirely by the BJP. As Narendra Modi himself pointed out at his victory speech on the banks of the Ganga in Varanasi after winning the polls, all prime ministers of India before him have either been from the Congress or were persons of Congress origin, thereby indicating that a saffron revolution had taken place.

Netaji: Living Dangerously by Kingshuk Nag



Did Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose die in an air crash in Taihoku (Taipei, Taiwan) on 18 August 1945? Was he sent off to Siberia by Joseph Stalin? Did he die there? Or did he escape? Or was he let off, eventually to make his way back to India? Was he the mysterious Gumnami Baba of Faizabad, Uttar Pradesh? If so, how did he find his way back? Why did Bose leave India when he did? Was it on account of his political approach, which was opposed by the then high command of the Congress party that wanted a quick transfer of power from the British?

The past comes alive as journalist and author Kingshuk Nag seeks answers to these and related questions at a time when there is a considerable renewal of interest in Netaji’s fate with old records tumbling out, the latest being the declassification of files by the government.

Netaji: Living Dangerously is a riveting account of the life of one of India’s most charismatic leaders and an in-depth analysis of one of the world’s best kept secrets.

The NaMo Story A Political Story by Kingshuk Nag

One of the truly enigmatic personalities on the contemporary Indian political canvas, Narendra Damodardas Modi is difficult to ignore. From his humble beginnings as a RSS pracharak to his rise in the Hindutva ranks, and from being Bharatiya Janata Party's master planner to one of the its most popular and controversial state chief ministers, Modi's mantra of change and development is gradually finding many takers. Though he evokes vastly different reactions among the citizens for his alleged role during the Godhra aftermath, what is absolutely clear is that he indeed is racing towards the centre stage, making the 2014 General Elections look more like a Presidential system – where, you either vote for him or against him. And that, as they say, is the Modi effect. Kingshuk Nag paints the most vivid portrait of the extraordinary politician who is poised to take on a new role in the coming years.
