NARASIMHA RAO BIOGRAPHY

My biography of the Indian prime minister P.V. Narasimha Rao, was released on 27 June 2016 by the vice president of India. It was published in India by Penguin Random House with the title 'Half Lion: How P.V. Narasimha Rao Transformed India'. The US-edition received unanimous external peer review approval from Oxford University Press USA, and was published in late 2017 with the title 'The Man Who Remade India'. 

The book has also been translated into Hindi by Oxford University Press India, Tamil by New Horizon Media, and Telugu by Emesco Books. 

The book was a best-seller many times over, and briefly reached #1 in the non-fiction bestseller list in India (by this estimate). Amazon.com has included it in a worldwide list of ‘100 biographies and memoirs to read in a lifetime’, while The Economist magazine deemed it 'A Book of the Year'. 

The book was extensively covered in the media. Please click on the links below for some of the coverage.
