Description

The Militant Trade Union Leader. The Dauntless Political Rebel. The Passionate Socialist Dreamer. This is a biography of India's George Fernandes... This is a history of contemporary India. George could call Bombay to shut down... and rose from its streets to become India's Defence Minister. George Fernandes (1930-2019)-a firebrand trade union leader, socialist and amazingly powerful orator-is popularly known for leading the All India Railwaymen's Federation (AIRF) in 1974 and calling upon its approximately 1. 7 million employees to strike, which brought India to a halt for twenty days. Often described as a rebel, he pursued every cause he took up with passionate devotion, heedless of the many ups and downs in his life. From the early years of fighting for the rights of dock and municipal workers of Bombay (now Mumbai) through the Emergency, which he resisted by going underground, to his last private decade as a bed-ridden Alzheimer's patient, his fights were always persistent and single-handed. The Life and Times of George Fernandes chronicles the story of George, who rose from the streets of Bombay to stride the corridors of power. In this extraordinary biography, Rahul Ramagundam opens a window to George's political evolution and traces the course of the Socialist Party in India from its inception in 1930s to its dissolution into the Janata Party in the late nineteen-seventies. In the process, the book explores the trail of India's Opposition parties that worked to displace the long-ruling Congress Party from its preeminent position. Comprehensive, evocative and absolutely unputdownable, this first definitive biography of George Fernandes is a tour de force.
