Social Activists, Amitabh Thakur and Nutan Thakur are writing a book on Kejriwal
Social Activists, Amitabh Thakur and Nutan Thakur are writing a book on Arvind Kejriwal revolving around the man, his personality, his making, his truth, the myths and the realities and the lives and times surrounding him.
Arvind Kejriwal is one of the most unusual things that happened in India in the last many years. An IITian, an IRS officer, a social activist, an anti-corruption crusader, a politician, a Chief Minister, a contender against a PM candidate, all rolled into one, Kejriwal had been there for long but he emerged as a public personality on the national scale like a Dhumketu in 2011 when he teamed up with Anna Hazare and others to bring forth the Anna movement.
Since then Kejriwal has always been in the forefront of national happenings in various ways, through many of his omissions and commissions. There was a time when he was considered a universal hero, with very few detractors. Today, he has his large share of friends and foes, admirers and detractors. There are many who have also started to write him off, while there are others who sincerely believe that his best is yet to come. There are others who also talk about various dark sides associated with him.
All said and done, Kejriwal's eruption on the national scene and his roller-coaster ride since then has been something out of the fable-tales. Much has been written about him but at the same time, there seems to be further need to study the man, his mission, his thinking, his persona, his work, his accomplishments so far and his possible course of action, in the larger firmament of Indian and global socio-political scenario.
The persona being fascinating, the rise being mesmerizing and the entire set of events being mystical and controversial, we have been equally attracted to the phenomenon called AK by his followers and Kejru, Khujaliwal etc by his detractors, leading to taking a decision to make an endeavour to study the man and his times, not in a superficial manner but through sincere, neutral and deep-sighted perspective.
Hence this attempt to write a book on Kejriwal. The Social Activists have requested all those friends who feel attracted towards this topic in any manner and think that they can put in any input about Sri Kejriwal and/or his times- including facts, opinions, their own perspective, personal experience etc, to kindly write to them at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or contact at 094155-34526.
They have assured all their friends that the book will be completely unbiased to the best of their abilities and would definitely try to delve deep into the man and his related facts. The authors shall try to present the man as they find him to be, through their thorough research work and not on the basis of what they have so far heard or thought about him. Again they assure that it will be a completely academic book, with no overt or covert political connotations attached to it in any manner.
