This book is about the changing landscape of politics of the largest democracy in the world. This commentary comes from a scientist, artist, anti-theist and social activist, who traverses both US and India. This book, thus in addition to commentary on politics, also touches on the delicate issues of Indian mores and values. It makes no holy cows or scapegoats but is a commentary on the pressing needs of Indian society and the ascent of common man of India. The first half of the book explores the changing dynamics of the Indian society. The second half explores how the rise of Aam Aadmi Party, a product of anti-corruption movement, has tried to fill the vacuum of public accountability in Indian politics. The book explores if Aam Aadmi Party is capable of galvanizing public support in the form of a sustainable force, with a coherent vision for future. The book contrasts two clear visions of India, one sectarian and the other progressive, secular and inclusive. The book ends with a battle call of an inclusive Indian renaissance from Varanasi.
