In his crisp, characteristic style, the author launches a broadside against identity politics, which seek to erode the idea of Bharat and suppress the voice of its majority. He also rips apart the facade of half-truths and dissembling, legitimized as ‘political correctness,’ in staunch defence of the Indian Army and national sentiments. At the same time, the book looks at what India can accomplish, when left to its genius and cultural heritage, despite a thousand daunting odds.
“Scary Portents should be of great value to the professional security analyst and the lay public alike. It represents the author’s years of fruitful work as a fearless journalist and commentator, who highlights the bitter truth,” writes Maj Gen GD Bakshi.
