From Bihar to Tihar Reviews

  • Tanmay Patange

    Earlier when I made an update about this book (on Instagram) announcing that I'll soon be doing book reviews, I got a comment from some gentlemen asking me "you are a pure leftist aren't you?"I was surprised since I was hoping to be labeled anti-national and not leftist for showing interest in hearing what a student who was charged with sedition has to say.I didn't respond to his comment then knowing that my review will say things better on my behalf. So here we have people who not only judge bo [...]

  • Gunjan

    This book is not exceptional literature but it is required reading if you ever made up your mind to hate the students of JNU for being "anti-nationalist" as shown by the media. If you ever wondered about the leftist wing in India and background to JNU sensationalization. It is the story from the person everyone hated due to conspiracies against this young kid by the ruling government of India. Be ready to change your mind by the end of this book, especially if you get your information fix from b [...]

  • Vaishali Gupta

    I had not followed the whole kanhaiya story on media. However he kept cropping up during discussions in several forums. And that intrigued me. I picked up this book to understand the whole issue closely. His perspective on politics and activism surely strikes a chord with me, though I wish I could get first hand perspective of the other side too. Nonetheless the writer makes some exceptionally brilliant and valid points about India and majority of Indians."To be able to understand exploitation, [...]

  • Swarna Pawar

    His writing depict the actual problem in India. Generally we polish our egos by saying that India is a Holy Country. Countries aren't holy, people who live in and nurture its freedom make it holy. In the current situation we are all living in an open jail. We are scared in our own houses, we are scared of going out in the night, we are scared to talk, where to talk and how our opinions will be manipulated. We feel insecure and yet on 15th august every year we congratulate each other and Say Happ [...]

  • Saket Suman

    In terms of the writing style, I would say the translation of book to English could have been better and more presentable. Its pretty evident from the content that the Hindi version would have had a better impact on me as a reader .The reason I was so intrigued to pick this book up was to understand and get to know the facts from the other side as well. From day 1 of JNU events, Kanhaiya Kumar and his colleagues were awarded the tag of "anti-national" and "terrorist". On completing the book, I h [...]

  • Arbaaz

    Inspiring tale of a man with least resources and opportunitiesI am impressed how Kanahiya is so well informened, and articulate given his poor schooling background. Although I do realize that he has had help from others in writing this book but still it's quite impressive.

  • Kandachamy Vijayakumaran

    A unique saga of an otherwise regular guy. Interesting to read.

  • Dahlia

    This is a short autobiography of the famous Maoist terrorist bordering on graphic contents.The very first chapter, which addresses the horrific abuse Kanhaiya suffered made me realise this story was going to have much more depth than I expected. Spoilers ahead:"From a very tender age, many girls were attracted to me, but as I was very shy and I had slight EDS problem, I could not manage the courage to have sex with anyone till I went to Tihar Jail " "Life was getting very boring for me, I did no [...]
