Asia Times Online; " Women who Shaped India"

The reputed Asia Times Online has published a substantial review called " Women who shaped India" which explores some fascinating themes -not least of which is the tradition of India's fascination with women from the West and their absorption into Indian culture.

"A poignant and engaging read written from Sonia Gandhi’s point of view."

Kipling advised us to treat both of those imposters, triumph and disaster, just the same. So I receive the tough critics the same way I receive the comment in this book review published 6-2-2012.

"Rani Singh does a brilliant job in painting an intimate canvas of Sonia Gandhi through exclusive interviews with those who know her closely."
