In a bid to demystify aBrand Rahula, Decoding Rahul Gandhi chronicles his political path, which is different from that pursued by his mother Sonia, father Rajiv, and grandmother Indira. Although the 42-year-old Rahul has borrowed a few elements from them, he has carefully and deliberately added new ideas, strategies and practices from the world of business and management. Rahulas philosophy is a form of corpo-politics, where management principles are applied to political leadership, and socio-politics, where beliefs in inclusive growth are ingrained in overall strategies. Why have Rahulas plans flopped so far? His initiatives to inculcate ainternal democracya in the Congressa youth and student wings were well-intentioned, but lacked a clear-cut thrust and have failed to grapple with realpolitik. Decoding Rahul Gandhi is based on dozens of interviews with political actors, members of Rahulas team in the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) and National Studentsa Union of India (NSUI), and his friends and acquaintances. Coupled with in-depth reportage of his electoral and political campaigns, the book establishes how Rahulas politics is riddled with inconsistencies, symbolism and an opportunistic, rather than committed, engagement with national issues. The book throws light on the factors that have shaped him as a person and politician. It details his working style, which is nearer to a CEO of a Fortune 500 company, and the role played by the members of his A-Team (which includes Kanishka Singh and Sachin Rao). ac How did Rahul Gandhias years abroad as a student and as a management consultant influence his politics? ac What was his much-hyped revamp of the IYC and the NSUI all about? ac What are the reasons for the Congressa and Rahulas humiliating defeat in the 2012 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections? ac How has he applied global management principles, like aThe Toyota Waya and aBottom of the Pyramida, to domestic politics? ac Prime Minister Rahul Gandhi a what would this mean for India?... she shared with the author.
