Upkar Prakashan, India's leading publishing house is proud to present Beyond Rahul Versus Modi, 2014-2024: The Battle for India's Soul. The youth of India is acutely aware of the challenges and opportunities that they face ahead in their lives and careers. It goes without saying that the performance of bosses like Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi and even Arvind Kejriwal will have an impact on the future of India's youth. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Narendra Modi presents a formidable challenge to the virtual political monopoly of the Congress at the centre. Supporters of Rahul Gandhi realize that the challenge posed by Modi is far more serious than the time when Atal Bihari Vajpayee became the Prime Minister. Not just Congress, but a lot of Indians who belong to the elite establishment of Delhi representing media, arts, culture, academics and activism feel threatened by the rise of Modi. For them, Modi is a threat to the Nehruvian Consensus that has governed India since independence. At the same time, for a growing number of aspirational young Indians, the old economic system patronized by the Congress, and the Maai Baap culture of populism practiced by Rahul Gandhi is failing to help them get better jobs and lead better lives. They see Modi as an agent of change that is much required in India.
Beyond Rahul Versus Modi is a book that chronicles the fascinating battle between the forces that represent Rahul and Modi. The book analyses why and how this battle for the soul of India will extend well beyond the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections, perhaps even into the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. There is compelling analysis of the battle between Rahul and Modi as one between aspirational Bharat and elitist India. Besides, there is a serious analysis of what kind of challenge is actually posed in the long run by Arvind Kejriwal & AAP.
Beyond Rahul versus Modi is a must read for all youngsters who are concerned about their future, and about the future of India
