In "The Crisis of New India: How Modi and the BJP are Breaking our Country," Parakala Prabhakar presents a thought-provoking and critical analysis of India's current political, social, and economic landscape. Spanning the years from 2020 to 2023, the book sheds light on the realities of the Narendra Modi-led BJP government's tenure, which began in 2014 with much promise but has since faced mounting challenges.

Prabhakar, unafraid to challenge the status quo, delves into various aspects of India's governance, society, and economy. With a keen eye for facts and data, he highlights the troubling signs of a broken polity, societal fractures, and economic issues plaguing the nation. Despite a compromised media and a dominant digital army working to influence public discourse, Prabhakar stands firm as a critical voice, determined to speak truth to power.

Throughout the book, he examines key speeches by the Prime Minister and the RSS chief, uncovering evidence of religious majoritarianism and creeping authoritarianism. He sheds light on suppressed statistics, highlighting issues like unemployment and inequality, and reveals the partisan role of investigative agencies and the income tax department.

Prabhakar also addresses the BJP's divisive approach, particularly in its treatment of India's Muslims as second-class citizens. Additionally, he criticizes the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and identifies instances of economic mismanagement.

By connecting the dots and providing an insightful analysis, "The Crisis of New India" urges readers to confront the reality of the changing landscape and the direction in which the country is heading. It serves as a wake-up call for citizens invested in the future of the Indian Republic, emphasizing that silence and complacency are no longer viable options.

With an urgent and unapologetic tone, Prabhakar's book challenges readers to recognize the true picture of the 'New India' unfolding before their eyes and prompts them to take an active role in shaping the country's future.
