In 2019, the BJP came into power once again on the back of one of the most significant electoral mandates in recent years. Since then, the Narendra Modi-led government has seen a tumultuous few years as they have implemented far-reaching legislative changes including the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, triple talaq, the Citizenship (Amendment) Act as well as farming laws. These laws, when implemented, caused widespread protests and upheaval across the country. While the country grappled with internal strife, it also faced challenges from its neighbors in the form of one of the most intense military stand-offs in decades after an unprovoked attack by China’s People’s Liberation Army at Galwan as well as a global pandemic. While the Modi government took swift steps to limit the spread of the pandemic in 2020, the second wave of COVID-19 in early 2021 hit the country hard, claiming thousands of lives. Bringing a well-researched and nuanced understanding to Modi’s second term, The Midway Battle sheds light on the sociopolitical issues facing India as it continues its struggle against enemies both known and unknown, and puts into in perspective what lies ahead for the world’s biggest democracy.

 

Review

'It is never easy to write a book on contemporary politics or current affairs. The author has to ensure that a bias does not creep into the former and current affairs do not become irrelevant as he writes. Gautam Chintamani has handled both these aspects commendably in his book. Today, it truly is a midway battle for India as it emerges from the lethargy of the past and is now at the cusp of history moving into a future that should be rightfully India's. It is the kind of book that has to be read by all as it gives an Indian perspective and context to what is happening in India.' -- Vikram Sood - former head of the Research and Analysis Wing
