In a career spanning more than two decades, he worked for, among others, The Statesman, Deccan Chronicle, The Business Standard and India News Television News Channel. His stint as a Senior Political Analyst with the British High Commission (Delhi) for over three years taught him lessons in bureaucracy but he realized his existence there was in stark contrast to the world outside and one fine morning he decided to quit and do something more meaningful.

Having known Modi ever since he was a Delhi-based secretary of the BJP, the author attempts to present the real Modi—compassionate, sensitive and determined to work for betterment of the country . The book is a product of intense research of one year by a dedicated team that sifted through more than 50,000 hyperlinks, a dozen books on Modi including the ones in Gujarati language and various research papers and reports. The author and his team interviewed more than 100 people, mostly those impacted by the initiatives undertaken by the chief minister.
