Description

Who is Teesta Setalvad?

For the Hindu Right, she is a dangerous impediment to India’s onward march to ‘glory.’ This is the story of the real Teesta, inheritor of the best and most progressive traditions of India’s struggle for freedom, a ceaseless and courageous fighter for justice.

In these moving memoirs, she speaks of the influence of her grandfather and father; her early career as a journalist her coming to political maturity during the horrific violence in Mumbai after the demolition of the Babri Masjid in the winter of 1992-93, her own trajectory as an activist with fellow traveler, Javed and, of course, her role during and after the post-Godhra violence in Gujarat. This is a stirring, inspiring tale of determination, courage, fortitude and an unshakeable commitment to constitutional principles.
