My Country My
Life is An Extraordinary Self-Portrait of India S Leading Political Personality
– L.K. Advani. As An Immigrant Who Was Forced To Abandon His Beloved Sindh,
Which Became A Part Of Pakistan After India, Was Partitioned In 1947, On The
Basis Of The Communally Inspired Two Nation Theory, Advani Gives A Poignant
First-Person Account Of That Tragedy. With A Career Spanning Six Decades As A
Political Activist In Post-1947 India, During Which He Has Been A Ring-Side
Viewer Of, And Participant In, Almost All The Major Socio-Political
Developments In India, Advani Is Uniquely Qualified To Offer A Perspective On
Independent India S Political Evolution. The Apogee Of Advani S Achievement Was
His Seminal Contribution, Together With His Senior Colleague Atal Bihari
Vajpayee, To Ending The Congress Party S Dominance Over India S Polity By
Building The Bharatiya Janata Party As A Viable Alternative For Governing
India. The Book Provides A Riveting, Insightful And Assertive Account Of Advani
S Fight For Democracy During The Emergency, His Ram Rath Yatra For The
Reconstruction Of The Ram Temple At Ayodhya That Resulted In The Biggest Mass
Movement In India Since Independence And Catalysed A Nationwide Debate On The
True Meaning Of Secularism, And His Years As India S Deputy Prime Minister And
Home Minister In The Vajpayee-Led Government Of The National Democratic
Alliance Between 1998-2004. The Importance And Relevance Of The Publication Of
His Memoirs Has Increased Considerably Since He Has Now Been Chosen By The Bjp-Led
Nda To Lead The Multi-Party Alliance Into The Forthcoming Parliamentary
Elections.
