Indispensable. Should be read by anyone concerned with South Asian politics and the machinations of the US 13 Mar 2014
By H. Jadwani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Even if this were a fictional play, it would be very readable. As it concerns one of the 'earth-shattering' events in recent Indian history, whose repercussions were felt by millions of Sikhs and Hindus for decades, it is indispensable. The Silkh community paid a very heavy price for the actions of a handful, but the real perpetrators of this assassination are barely recognized. Mr. Ali covers every conceivable angle, playing no favourites as the plausible motives and actions of the various parties - Pakistani, Sikh, Indian, and the US, are covered. An apparent 'coup d'etat' committed by the 'Washington Consensus', getting rid of a nasty thorn in their side, a defiant, independent Indian Prime Minister, in her own way a far more 'iron' lady than the better known counterpart.

The Assassination of Indira Gandhi 14 Jun 2009
By Maya Rao - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I love Tariq Ali. Being born in the same year, the same country, and leaving for the UK around the same time, I have pursued his consistent devotion and action on human rights worldwide. His knowledge of history and current events is incredible, but more endearing to me is the way he presents all sides of an issue. I simply admire the man that Tariq Ali is.
