About the product
The meteoric rise of the Aam Aadmi Party-from inception to running the state of Delhi in thirteen months-is a story with three principal strands. First, Arvind Kejriwal; iconoclast, leader, and disrupter par excellence, who has dared to defy the fundamental templates of Indian politics and governance. Second, the coalescing of a group of unprecedented diversity-a journalist, a lawyer, an academic, a policymaker, a Ceo, a retired Nsg commando, an architect, and a poet, among many others-on the streets of New Delhi, all bound together by a shared idea of an India that could have been. And, third, of the awakening of the aam aadmi, and of his realization that he can be as active a participant and change-maker in national politics as any other. In The Disrupter, veteran journalists Gautam Chikermane and Soma Banerjee provide an in-depth, fly-on-the-wall account of how these three strands came together to create a brand-new political tapestry. And how a single political party shattered the status quo; captivated the imagination of the citizenry, taking people beyond the usual cynical labels of caste and creed; and changed the contemporary political narrative in ways that are both unthinkable and unpredictable.
