Half Lion is the story of our former Prime Minister, ruling through a Congress government while belonging to outside the family.
Vinay Sitapati, in his unique writing style, gives insights into Rao’s life. He stitches together a story of the crisis Rao inherited and the India he left at his retirement. Half Lion goes into Rao’s diaries and takes the reader to issues like the economic crisis, nuclear program, Babri Masjid and much more.
Full of enriching anecdotes from Rao’s life, this is a story of how a village boy ruled the world’s largest democracy, how an outsider went inside and up the Congress hierarchy, how he inherited a falling India and how he transformed it.
