Product Description

Sadguru Patil
Sadguru Patil has been working for various Marathi newspapers since 1995. He has worked as chief reporter with Dainik Gomantak and is now the bureau chief with the Goa edition of Lokmat. He has covered politics extensively and all major political developments in Goa in that period.
Mayabhushan Nagvenkar
Known for his irreverence and occasional spells of unemployment, Mayabhushan Nagvenkar has been a journalist for nearly twenty-two years in Mumbai, Delhi and Goa. Currently, he is the state correspondent for the Indo-Asian News Service based in Goa, largely covering politics and reviewing books.

Over the last two decades, the exploits of one man, an IIT-Bombay alumnus, changed the way mainstream India looked at Goa and the political goings-on in the country's smallest state. An Extraordinary Life traces the life and times of Manohar Parrikar through the informed voices of his relatives, friends, foes, bureaucrats and IIT contemporaries. The daily battles of a gifted individual are brought to the fore as he encounters love and vices. But more importantly, it showcases his rise in politics from the son of a grocery store owner in a nondescript town, a sanghachalak in Mapusa town, an Opposition MLA and leader, to a chief minister (on multiple occasions) and, finally, to a defence minister.This biography of Manohar Parrikar is more hagiographic than critical, and silent where it mattersThe authors provide a 360-degree view to the many turns Parrikar's political career took even as Parrikar moved from Goa to Delhi and to Goa againThe book is a sympathetic political biography mirroring the quicksand politics of Goa.In this biography, Parrikar emerges as an astute leader, adept in manipulative politics, but with accomplishments way behind his potentialA "nuanced and sensitive narration", the book claims to be an "insightful and captivating read, complete with the informed voices of his relatives, friends, foes, bureaucrats and IIT contemporaries"
