We’re thrilled to announce that Prashant Kishor, key strategist in the landslide victories of Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar, will co-author his forthcoming book on elections with Sankarshan Thakur, an award-winning political journalist and author of The Brothers Bihari.
Prashant Kishor will dissect what influences Indian voters today, their aspirations and what they now demand of their leaders.
“Writing is a new world for me, but I am hoping this foray into the world of books will be a step towards widening the conversation with the emerging new electorate, especially the youth and professionals, about the essential rites of our democracy: elections,” said Prashant Kishor.
“Excited to be working on this with the man who leads the field in transforming the way elections are now plotted and fought. Reporting Prashant’s work has been fascinating as a journalist, but there’s much more to know and tell. That’s the promise of this book and the and thrill of doing it,” said Sankarshan Thakur.
“This is the book that everyone has been waiting for! And we are absolutely delighted that Sankarshan has agreed to co-author it with Prashant Kishor. One of our most acclaimed and experienced journalists and writers, who has closely observed Prashant at work during the Bihar elections, Sankarshan will bring to this book his keen understanding of the personalities, issues, and factors that drive politics in India, and his ability to weave these into a gripping narrative,” said Chiki Sarkar, Publisher, Juggernaut.
