To read a riveting non-fiction in this form is a privileged experience while keeping in mind that it is a narrative as seen in first person with the front row seat in the battlefront. Indira Gandhi was a mother goddess. The book shows how the wily and sharp cross examination of Shanti Bhushan nailed the lies of this mother goddess in open court. In India we tend to revere and bend to authority since the British left. Its marvellous to know through this book how few men kept their backs straight and argued a case which even they did not believe that they would win. After all, they were against the Indira Gandhi. –By Milan Gupta on 6 July 2017

It’s excellent that this book is available, but I think there are a few things that could have been improved. Firstly the title. It’s an excellent subtitle, but as a title it fails. This is a landmark case. Why not say what it is about? Otherwise readers who don’t open the book will not know what it is about. It’s not an original subtitle either. Seven days that shook the world was a book about the Russian revolution, so its clearly taken from that. I can think of very many titles that would have worked better. Say ‘Unseating the Indian Prime Minister’ – then the nature of the book and the materials within becomes very clear to everyone. –By Jasmine Kalra on 30 June 2017
