From being one of the vital earliest members of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, Vajpayee blossomed into a leading opposition MP by the late 1960s, went on to turn into External Affairs Minister in the short-lived Janata government and, in any case in 1999, to head the first non-Congress government to complete a full term in place of job. That it used to be a coalition government made the feat the entire more remarkable, and testifies to the truth that though wedded to a right-wing political ideology, Vajpayee did not consider in the politics of exclusion.
A protégé of Jana Sangh stalwarts like Syama Prasad Mukherjee and Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, Vajpayee won the admiration of Jawaharlal Nehru, used to be consulted by his daughter Indira Gandhi—whom he never lacked the courage to criticize—and befriended by fiery trade unionist George Fernandes even before they became political allies. He thus displayed an atypical ability to carry along all shades of political opinion—an ability that came to the fore when he headed the National Democratic Alliance government between 1999 and 2004. And at the back of this public persona used to be an atypical personal life, conducted with such dignity as to remain free of innuendo.
In this book, journalist Kingshuk Nag traces the political journey of this tall parliamentarian of over four decades, who used to be conferred the Bharat Ratna in December 2014. Atal Bihari Vajpayee: A Man for All Seasons is a definitive account of the life and times of one of India’s most illustrious non-Congress leaders.
