My wrists still throb because of the continuous writing that I did. Writing 3000-5000 words for 2 months straight was very challenging but I wanted to be the first biographer of Yogi and that was one thing that kept me going. And as the cliché goes, once you start working towards a goal with all your heart and soul, the universe conspires to make it happen.

From being a rebel politician inside and outside the party, he now has become a man of consensus. Through extensive research I have accumulated unseen pictures, unheard instances, first-time interviews, with people close to Yogi, in this biography

New chief ministers usually begin their stint by overhauling the bureaucracy, but Adityanath did not make changes immediately after assuming office. He retained former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav’s setup, but warned officers against laxity.

Adityanath’s rise to the post of Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh was not missed by international media either. Washington Post wrote, “Modi’s party picks Yogi Adityanath, strident Hindu nationalist priest, as leader of India’s biggest state”. BBC said, “Yogi Adityanath: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister choice criticized”. New York Times said, “Firebrand Hindu Cleric Yogi Adityanath picked as Uttar Pradesh Minister”.

One thought that this sort of sentiment had died down. This incident proves that the climate of hatred and intolerance seems to be alive. We need to respond to this attack with awareness and continued diligence.

The climate of hate and intolerance that has been promoted by this current (BJP) government, aided by television channels and freelance goondas, is complicit in this murder. It is chilling. We are becoming mirror images of Bangladesh and Pakistan, where writers are killed for what they say. This is an attempt to silence all of us, all of those who believe in democracy and decency.

Ramachandra Guha

In India today, independent writers and journalists are harassed, persecuted, and even killed. But we shall not be silenced.
