Dunn – 9facts.co.uk little boys torn from their mother on the criminal charge of Tavleen Singh s India s Broken Tryst by Proloy Bagchi Having read her columns I eagerly took up her book India s broken tryst when it came my way It is a sweeping coverage of post independent India and its politics from Nehru down to Modi As the book was published init covers only the first few months of Modi s regime India s Broken Tryst by Tavleen Singh Anu Reviews India s Broken Tryst by Tavleen Singh takes you through the two ends of the spectrum that make the Indian society At one end are the rich politicians ❰BOOKS❯ ✸ Millennial Hospitality Author Charles James Hall – 9facts.co.uk businessmen journalists who operate from the drawing rooms of Lutyen s Delhi At the other end are the people who are born on the footpath or roadside and would probably die at the same If you are an average middle class person and here I mean any I picked up this book solely on the basis of the columns written by the journalist turned author Tavleen Singh I don t follow politics like a fanatic just as a normal citizen of India does However, I do read articles to get an insight on the history of major political events and that s how I stumbled upon her article She writes well of course being a journalist writing articles and all that , although this particular book reminded meof gossip girl Tavleen as the gossip girl columni I picked up this book solely on the basis of the columns written by the journalist turned author Tavleen Singh I don t follow politics like a fanatic just as a normal citizen of India does However, I do read articles to get an insight on the history of major political events and that s how I stumbled upon her article She writes well of course being a journalist writing articles and all that , although this particular book reminded meof gossip girl Tavleen as the gossip girl columnist and Sonia as Blair Waldorf from upper east side which is Lutyens, Delhi only, we re waiting to see the saint side of the latter Now to the parts which I really liked her flow as well as the narrative her focus point throughout the book remains on how politics shouldn t be dynasty driven which is mostly the case in India She justifies this with a series of failed politicians who ve got the opportunity to serve the people of the country solely based on succession, yet, have basically sucked at the role, the focal point agenda of entering politics being power, money and an easy celebrity status Then the piece where she goes on to do a story on schools and hospitals in UP The dismal conditions of the hospitals and schools despite numerous government programmes and the truth of the country s status in the hand of bureaucrats was absolutely sad The chapter on trafficking left me with no words Then comes her story on the irony of government institutions set up to help kids filing an eviction notice against another locally run institution helping kids She concludes this chapter again blaming bureaucracy being the curse of the country This premise is repeated in the book with similar instances which I m afraid is very much true in our country A public officer is basically supposed to help the people using his her position and the country s resources In majority cases this doesn t happen, the officers mostly lack empathy and are used to being kowtowed, the basic motive is earning a decent salary, enjoying the perks of being a government employee and cashing in on the position to ensure maximum returns She is pretty vocal and clear on this issue, the slothful and inept bureaucrats.She touches upon various topics albeit almost always ends up bragging about herself and doesn t forget bashing up her favorite target Sonia Not that I have a soft corner for Sonia, most of the things that the author speaks about her are true, the manner and flow in which it has been portrayed in the book islike a bitching session name calling like Maharani, apolitical Italian housewife and de factor empress of India than talking on seriousness of issues with specific instances of her failure I mean she goes like anonymous person told me blah blah blah That isn t what one wants to read That s like her journalist rant right there We read it in her columns The book mostly seems a collection of important experiences that she had as a journalist and not a book on any particular topic per se Then there s her dog and street children emphasis on India being a poor country as we are repeatedly robbed first on account of colonisation and then by the country s so called leaders Now the emphasis on the street children and their dismal conditions is understandable considering she s trying to give the reader an insight into the ground realities in the country This is fine, however, when she describes her role in helping these kids, the glorifying seems back You don t have to write about the nice things you do As a wise man said daaye haath se seva karo toh baaye haath ko pata nai chaley let the left hand not know what charity has been done by the right hand Another instance was where she speaks about her ancestry Maan Singh or about some prince s wedding she s attending no idea why unnecessary show off In the chapter about Nehru she describes in detail about the lacking nature of Nehruvian socialism and the fact that although many people saw this, the awe that resonated with the name Nehru resulted in deaf governance and mute policies His poor handling of the Kashmir matter is also touched upon.The author s hatred of feudalism and dynasty politics is evident throughout the book She condemns the kowtowing done by the bureaucrats and officers around the Gandhi family and yet at one point she mentions about an old photograph of Indira Gandhi with reporters herself and she keeps it as a memento I mean you hate this attitude of people giving undue importance to this family as rulers of the country and then you keep a photo as a memento to remind you of the first time you saw Indira Gandhi at close quarters Seriously Oh and then the maligning starts on how small and frail she Indira was compared to how she looked on TV pictures, then there s the constant bragging of her relationships with politicians or former prince princess which contradicts her ideologies, she just can t stop giving them this constant importance she complains people see them as rulers and royals, hello so do you bonus point yea So time and again we witness her spiteful braggart side, not witty or funny, just unnecessary details and a sense of contradiction that s probably her inherent nature, not discounting her observations in the book Then she finally gets to the point at hand Indira Gandhi One should read her book, apart from the occasional gossip bitching, she does give her opinion insight on politics over a long period, from the 19th century to present day which is properly backed up if one is interested , and mostly her views are logical which gives a glimpse into the history of Indian politics with a proper material.Her experience as a journalist is very well mentioned in the book, her interactions with the masses and local politicians The entire part on the change in people of India, their aspirations, opinions, being knowledgeable thanks to the cell phone revolution , which lead to the Modi wave Most of her observations are on point although her descriptions of places and unnecessary people make the book lengthy in respect of government policies and also religious politics, the fact that education should be given importance is strongly mentioned in her book.Her intent is potent, and that combined with media as a platform helps her achieve things, and in today s day and age, I really wonder how many of them really take initiatives or act upon matters using their position in the society for the society There are several messages in the book which I do hope the right people take cognizance of and take necessary action to make India a better place than it already is One of the best political accounts that I have read in recent times The chronological view of the general elections, how the mindset of people change as 2014 loksabha elections approached is so crisp Also the way Indias electorate changed after independence, detailing into the progress and the current state of the various states is very interesting and seems realWritten in a very story like manner and relating to everything as she went through makes the book a very good read I didn t find this book as interesting and captivating as Tavleen singh s previous book Durbar highly recommended. An interesting account of how dynastic politics has come a long way.. I think it was a good book, but Durbar was far better. A well written account of Delhi politics from an almost insider Makes it easy for an outsider to understand on how the Lutyen s community worked, controlled and almost destoyed this country. Very informative but her egotism is unbearable.
