There is no better time to read this book than now. Author JK Sachin’s book- The PM’s Wishlist is a political fantasy, a very new genre that I have come across. With the 16th Lok Sabha elections just round the corner in India, I would suggest you all to give a good read to this book, just so you know what all needs to be done in the country (though this book is a work of fiction, but the problems discussed are very apt to our times) and we need a super duper leader to wipe out our problems.
So, a friend suggested me the book, and I got my hands on the e-book format of the same. And I can very happily say, that it is the first political fiction book that I have read and thoroughly enjoyed. The book revolves around the thought process, rigorous want for change and forward looking character of an elected Prime Minister of India and how he pin points the need to plan the changes that are to be seen in the country immediately. The book is very interestingly written with the use of Hindi and English together (Hinglish- for the people of my generation, who use it so often), and makes it quite a page-turner. With a heavy dose of economics and financial clichés explained with such ease, it actually mentions quite the ‘need of the hour’ things that the Indian economy is looking for right now.
From lowering taxes to safety in cities to woman empowerment to agricultural up-rise, I was really pleasantly surprised by the detailed analysis and the solutions that the author could come up with. He has tried to mellow down this genre of writing to the maximum as some economic and political terms and discussion can be quite daunting at times. But all in all he has tried to convey not only the challenges that our country faces today but has also come up with quite interesting and qualified solutions. The character of the main prodigy of the book i.e. the PM candidate- Mr Sharan Karan is phenomenally written and with no references to how he looks or sounds, it makes your imagination running; and for me well, he is no less than ‘George Clooney’- as the actions and the mind set is super sexy 😉
I really don’t want to give away the plot of this book as it definitely is a page turner, but it has made me ask so many questions about the country and the political climate right now- Is there anybody out there who really understands what problems does our country face? Or why is that we can’t even think of becoming an ‘Economic Super Power’ anymore? I know the book is a work of fiction and all, but once you finish it and think about it, the problems are so out there and everybody knows them, but it is the political machinery that has to bring its heads together and solve them and maybe take some practical suggestions from this book.
It’s an awesome read, and I would suggest you to grab a copy now!!
