About the Book

It is gratifying that a leader of the eminence of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee had been shining on the Indian parliamentary firmament for more than four decades with all the glory and universal acclaim for his speeches in the Parliament of India. Whether in the Lok Sabha or in the Rajya Sabha, he kept his audience including his most virulent critics and even the non-Hindi knowing members spell bound by his forceful and inspiring speeches delivered in crisp pawky prose, with deadly squelches, hilarious one liners sparkling witticism and reasoned arguments on national and international issues. His approach was constructive and persuasive always emphasizing what was in the best national interest. Needless to say, his compelling interventions had influenced Government decisions on several occasions. His thoughts worked as a link between the past, the present and the future. He made India a major player in world politics.

This series of three volumes capture the thrill, tang and task of Shri Vajpayee’s speeches (1957- 1995) along with his recollections. The book is an historic document of immense value and would be found useful by the English readership, policy makers, research scholars and youth.
