    The fact that I could finish such a hefty book in so short a time should establish couple of things immediately 1 The book is readable2 It stays away from analysis and tells the story of one of the most complex and impact making person of twentieth century in a very simple naive and one sided mannerExpectedly the author devotes the major part of the book to the crowning glory of Patel unification of the Princely States with the Indian Union Unfortunately the book shies away from some of the most agonising actions of Patel making this book a hagiography than a biographyIt vilifies Netaji Subhash Bose and completely cuts out the role of his mentor Deshbandhu CR Das in freedom struggleIt doesn't even bother itself with the trauma that Bengal had to undergo at the time of PartitionIt also remains mum about the extremely immoral attitude of Congress towards NWFP because by that time not only Muslim League but even Congress had tasted power and didn't think twice about throwing the people to wolvesEven at the time of talking about Princely States it doesn't mention a single word about Coochbehar the accesion of which had been assured to the Premier of Assam by Patel and non happening of which had soured his attitude towards Bengal even Overall a handy piece to start any attempt to understand Patel but absolutely NOT the most reliable or the comprehensive among all the books available on the subject

    I found this book to be a mixed readOn one hand this is a seminal work because there is no little available on Sardar Patel's work and life The level of information and his contribution in the Indian political discourse is at best cursory The traditional establishment historians have conflated the Indian independence struggle and the years soon afterwards with Gandhiji and Nehruji The duality has over time become gospel In terms of bringing out Sardar Patel's contribution to the freedom movement as well as highlighting the personality traits which made him different from the other two doyens this is a great book The author details out specific initiatives which Sardar led and grew within Congress hierarchy The description of how Sardar went about integrating the Princely states after 1947 in Indian union is very strong and meticulousYet this book is a cumbersome read especially the first part of it The author has adopted a brute force method to try and prove Sardar's contribution There is a theory which is then substantiated with incidents often times multiple of them And each incident is ualified by actual letters or third party commentary or media observations Since the book follows a chronological seuence this format becomes repetitive and difficult to appreciate after a while Basically integrating research for the book with the book focusing on volume rather than nuance makes it tougherThe book also does not address the Patel Nehru divide in a forthright manner The differences are acknowledged but the underlying reasons and the impact on the political events are dealt with a soft hand It may be that the author didn't want to choose one over the another But this is a fascinating under documented part of the freedom movement and this book misses an opportunity to fill a big voidDespite the above shortcomings the book paints a fair picture of Sardar Patel Just to broaden the horizons and understanding the complexities of how Congress functioned outside of the Gandhi Nehru influences and Patel's shaping of these functions this book should be read

    A fantastic insight into the role of the man who as free India's first Home Minister and Deputy PM orchestrated the herculean task of getting India as one Nation when the tendency to break up would have been so tempting for the princely states following the British withdrawal from India Besides those provinces under direct British rule approximately 565 self governing princely states had been released from British suzerainty by the Indian Independence Act 1947 His life from the time how he struggled to become a barrister to his contributions during the freedom struggle show the determination and grit is this great Indian leader A well written book if one would like to know about the role of other great Indian leaders who helped India in its independence struggle

  4. Rajat Jain Rajat Jain says:

    This book is definitely written by someone who was a die hard devotee of Sardar Patel He is generous in his praise I would have liked to learn about Sardar's failures as wellHaving said that the above was the only ualm I could find in this otherwise magnificently written biography on one of the greatest men of modern India Sardar Patel is not well known today and he was a man with fierce determination bias towards action shrewd negotiator and most importantly a fervent patriot This book highlights all these ualities of Sardar extensively and highlights his gigantic contributions without which modern Indian would have literally ceased to exist A must read

    देशावर अनेक संकटं कोसळली पण पटेलांचा मृत्यू देशावरचं सर्वात मोठं संकट आहेया वाक्यांमध्येचं त्यांची उंची दिसून येते आवर्जून वाचावं असं हे पुस्तक आहे

  8. Jagati Bagchi Jagati Bagchi says:

    Did not enjoy the book as it turned out to be just a life account without any political analysis Moreover the relation between Gandhi Patel and Nehru was portrayed as cordial which was anything but Moreover the part where he is criticised for dealing harshly within the party to subjugate any stand against Gandhi has been cleverly manipulated The constant conflict on the individual political and economic out look of a socialist Nehru and a capitalist Patel have also been subdued
