I’ve been here since 2011, and my other gig, of course, is The Wall Street Journal, which I’ve been doing since 2010.

Take, for example, an American president as chief guest at a Republic Day parade, or the military cooperation. The idea that America has emerged as one of the largest arms suppliers to India.

In many ways this is India’s most historic election (2014) since democracy was restored after a 21-month hiatus in 1977, and voters responded by handing the then ruling Congress Party its first ever defeat in a national election.

Narendra Modi, the 63-year-old, business-friendly chief minister of Gujarat state, is the most important political figure to emerge in India in a generation. He resonates with voters for many reasons.

In terms of foreign and defense policy, Modi is expected to hew to a more muscular, nationalistic line. Several commentators have likened him to Japan’s Shinzo Abe in this regard.

The way I look at it is that Islam is one of the world's great faiths and it is the faith of 1.1 billion people. Radical Islam is a political ideology which is followed by a minority of Muslims and it seeks to impose itself on every aspect of the state and society.

Ram Nath Kovind, a 71-year-old lawyer and politician formerly with the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, will take office next week as India’s 14th president. The position is largely ceremonial—executive power rests with the prime minister—but nonetheless symbolically important. The president is India’s head of state, its first citizen, so to speak.

I always enjoyed the religion beat at Mint – it used to fascinate me how spirituality intersected so easily with daily life in India. I wanted to examine how God plays out in our lives, and in the process, I interviewed (and reported on) Ramdev several times during my career.

My initial idea was to produce a compilation of about five or six yogis or gurus – but my publishers were fascinated with Baba Ramdev. They figured I should cull out an entire book revolving just around him.

The enterprises of Godmen is a subject that has fascinated me for a long time and I'd carried it around in my head for while. So when Chiki [Sarkar] had the idea to do an entire book on the biggest of them all, I decided to do it.
