Politics & government

How would you like it if the political situations are linked to some movies, songs or artists? If you are a little overwhelmed with the monotony of serious political debates, panel discussions and the screaming and the shouting on national television, here is a book that would offer you a sweet escape. How would you like Narendra Modi’s favourite movie to be augured as The Lion King? How Sonia restructures her cabinet time and again with Britney Spears’ songs inspiring her to do it? Why isn’t Arvind Kejriwal parting from his shawl even in the burning hot days of summer in Delhi? Is there anything at all that can get our P. M. Manmohan Singh annoyed or irritated or outraged? The book ponders upon these questions with a provocative, humourous perspective.

About the Authors

C.S. Krishna is a self-proclaimed legendary development consultant. He wants to make it big as a public policy guru but three years of writing satire for The UnReal Times under the pseudonym Unreal Mama has rendered him incapable of thinking seriously. He has an engineering degree from IIT Bombay an MS from The Ohio State University and an MBA from IIM-Ahmedabad.

Karthik Laxman has a degree in software engineering from BITS-Pilani and an MBA from IIM-Ahmedabad. In his career he has taken more U-turns than Mulayam Singh Yadav and Arvind Kejriwal put together, transitioning from a programmer to management consultant to development specialist to entrepreneur to sundry other roles, before finding his calling as a house-husband. He also writes for and manages The UnReal Times.
