About The Book

Goradia strove heroically to conquer stage fright, and at the age of forty, learned tolearned to deliver speeches in Urdu, having lived all his life in Bengal since the age ofseven. He found himself drawn towards Hindutva, his form of cultural nationalism whichmeant upholding Hindu values, though not at the exclusion of other communities.

Such valiant efforts found him a place in Parliament, although his tenure as a RajyaSabha MP of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was cut short-a happening for which heholds no one culpable. What this writer avers is that even though he did not renew hisrole as a parliamentarian, his political thought processes continue as before.

For a man whose life has spanned princely times, wartime rationing, Independence, thegrisly spectacle of Partition, new threats on the Indian horizon and the purblindness ofsome of the nation's leaders, Prafull Goradia has plenty to write about.

About The Author

Born in Bombay on 27 March 1937, Prafull Goradia spent the first seven years of his lifein Morbi state where his late grandfather had been Divan, and subsequently, his father,Private Secretary to the Maharajah. Right from his college days, longed to pursue apolitical career.

His first real break came, when, in the late Eighties, L.K. Advani singled him out forsome issues of national concern he had raised in letters to newspaper editors, an oldhobby of his. Advani advised him to start discussion groups with party workers, and hemet Narendra Modi very soon thereafter. Modi, too, felt Goradia should keep in touchwith the ideologues of the party.

He was elected to Parliament in 1998. As a member, he intervened in several importantmatters that came up for discussion, making several significant speeches oncontemporary issues, participating in debates and contributing to policy making. He wasalso instrumental in the construction of forty-nine shauchalayas from his MPLAD Fund.Prafull Goradia has penned several books: Profiles of Tea, The Saffron Book, HinduMasjids, Muslim League's Unfinished Agenda, Anti Hindus, and The Saga of IndianTea. He has also written over 500 articles on issues of both national and globalsignificance. His letters to editors of national dailies, numbering over 2,800, are usefulfor transporting contemporary readers over a period of modern India's political journey.He presides over The Indian School in Delhi which has earned a reputation for offeringmodern education entwined with traditional Indian ethos, a project close to his heart
