    The People's Maharaja by Khushwant Singh-From Yuvraj to a Captain to a Chief Minister is a very fascinating and very well written biography. The book is very interesting & gripping political biography that is totally unbiased .I see CM of Punjab in different light now. Man who always stood by his choices . A truly nationalist leader, with a secular mind, a futuristic developmental mindset and never dying positive attitude. The pages reveal behind the scenes intrigues, plots & counter plots....

When Punjab was in grip of territories in the late twentieth century. Operation Bluestar (June1984) & its consequences. At times I was shocked and surprised while reading the book. I liked the details provided behind the scenes, good insight to the future generations & make them aware of all what actually happened. The career graph of Captain Amarinder is very well written. I enjoyed reading this biography, and came to know how the term Patiala Peg got coined. Good read indeed.

    Why should you read it? If you have been living in Punjab from at least last thirty years, you would have seen Punjab turning from a widow to a bride, The expression for being able to embrace happiness after a decade of being denuded of it. The state that fought against the odds and emerged even more prosperous. Read this book to know if the fate of today’s political scenario would have been different if Captain Amarinder Singh would not have resigned twice from his parties? Read it to brush the Why should you read it? If you have been living in Punjab from at least last thirty years, you would have seen Punjab turning from a widow to a bride, The expression for being able to embrace happiness after a decade of being denuded of it. The state that fought against the odds and emerged even more prosperous. Read this book to know if the fate of today’s political scenario would have been different if Captain Amarinder Singh would not have resigned twice from his parties? Read it to brush the memory of the forgotten contribution of the former CM to the SYL canal issue? Or just to know about the leader who was supported by the voters but not by his own party a lot of times. What to expect- Expect to work your brain cells because there would be too many historic instances, political names to remember to keep you absorbed in the book until the end. If you are reading the book to look for the obvious controversies associated with the protagonist, you may find a few things on the loose ends because unspoken is better understood than spoken and misunderstood. Readers may find themselves being shocked and surprised many times in the book. A few chapters in the narrative cover the “secret talks” between the protagonist and Bhindranwale in the mid-80s. Never before I have read someone in the political battlefield being so inviting to something so scandalous, only a combination of a royal and an army man could do that. Recommended this to all my friends who enjoy a well written book.

    A very well written biography, there are hardly any meaningful biographies of politicians but this one is an exception. In addition, the book clearly portrays the so called dark phase of militancy and very succinctly brings out how militancy found foot in Punjab.

The Author, Khuswant Singh has planned the book very meticulously and appropriately A very well written biography, there are hardly any meaningful biographies of politicians but this one is an exception. In addition, the book clearly portrays the so called dark phase of militancy and very succinctly brings out how militancy found foot in Punjab. The protagonist-Amarinder Singh, a truly nationalist leader with clear secular mind, a futuristic developmental mindset and never dying positive attitude. The Author, Khuswant Singh has planned the book very meticulously and appropriately divided the book into different chapters, in Punjab hardly any leader comes out clearly and truthfully about the various issues and incidents which has effected the state, but in this book behind the scenes details are provided which provide a good insight to the future generation and make them aware what all and actually happened. Not only politics but the protagonist is covered in totality about all the aspect of his life right from birth till the time the book is published and in contemporary time too he proved his mantle once again by winning another election battle. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this biography, a very good read, indeed.

    I picked the book because of the author whose name is well known and admired. The hopes shattered when I saw the picture of this moonshiner at the back cover. Anyhow I continued and what excited me was when he declared in the introduction chapter about keeping away from making the book a hagiography. The story starts with history of Patiala royal family and not a single effort is spared to make it a hagiography. All the deeds be it right or wrong are embellished in favour of the royal scion.

Anyhow I continued and what excited me was when he declared in the introduction chapter about keeping away from making the book a hagiography. The story starts with history of Patiala royal family and not a single effort is spared to make it a hagiography. All the deeds be it right or wrong are embellished in favour of the royal scion. Nevertheless, the book throws light on various eras of Punjab in general and its politics in particular. Amarinder's life smells of political opportunism in which he is no different than any other politician. However he has been a key player in the state politics and has been vocal about various burning issues. The book has various typos and is largely skimmable for someone who is already averse with recent history of Punjab.
