Speaking after releasing the book, Governor Ram Naik thanked the author for bringing a dispassionate and objective account of the life of Yogi Adityanath Without going for hero worship such books often turn into. On a lighter note, he also complained that though the book deals in detail about UP politics and recent elections but there is no mention of him in the book.
"After the Engish book, there was a great demand for a Hindi version from the readers of Uttar Pradesh, especially eastern UP - the karmabhoomi of Yogi Adityanath. I am delighted that it has finally reached readers across India," said Author Pravin Kumar, a journalist with The Times of India, Lucknow for the past 20 years. The book has been translated by another journalist Prem Shankar Mishra.
The book beautifully highlights Yogi Adityanath’s journey from a village in Uttrakhand to Gorakhnath temple (Gorakhpur), Parliament and finally becoming Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. The enthralling read takes you through his life before politics, his beliefs and the ways that eventually led to Yogi’s political entry.
Yogi Aditynath has been the epicenter of many political debates, while the book showcases the rise of his political career; it also presents his different personality that people are unaware of. Yogi has a taken Hindutva and socialism parallel to one another; the man has given a new dimension to politics, which has been correctly highlighted in the book. Speaker Shri H N Dikshit praised the style of the writer which makes the book a great read. "When you read the book, it appears as if you are watching a film. The book reads like a thriller," he said.
Actor, Director Satish Kaushik who was also present on the occasion, said that the book gives an edge-of-the-seat thrill. "I started and finished it one-go within a few hours," he said.
The book can be bought on Amazon and is published by the Times Group. The governor also urged Times Group to publish the book in other India languages so that it could reach a wider audience across the country.
