About the book

Are ideologies a pair of binoculars that enable us to seefar? Or are they a pair of blinkers that keep us from seeing A shocking exposeeven that which is at hand? How is it that communists,of the role of Indianequipped as they are with the one great Theory that explainscommunists duringeverything, fumble so very often in seeing the obvious?the Quit IndiaHow did the Theory lead them to advocate the creation ofMovementPakistan? To declare in 1947 that India had not really becomeindependent? To insist that Pandit Nehru was just 'a running dogof imperialism'? To launch an insurrection in 1949 on the premise that India was ripe for anarmed revolution? To fumble so much in their response to the end of the communist bloc?
Arun Shourie, one of the most respected commentators on current affairs in India today,illustrates the malady by reconstructing what the communists did during the Quit IndiaMovement. In the process, he uncovers the secret negotiations they conducted and thesecret understanding they struck with the British, the reports they submitted to the imperialrulers about the work they were doing to subvert the movement Mahatma Gandhi hadlaunched.

He concludes with a review of the reactions of Indian communists to the break-up of theSoviet empire, showing how their mental make-up and habits have not changed in the sixdecades since independence. This is a must-read for understanding our times.
