Book synopsis/description:

'[Y]our threats are not going to intimidate me. Then why make such unnecessary statements?' – Pinarayi Vijayan, to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh

The RSS feed on fears. Fighting them requires depriving them of it. Pinarayi Vijayan, Chief Minister of Kerela, was born in Kannur, ground zero of RSS terror. He has seen the worst that they have to offer. And he's not afraid.

At the time when democracy is in danger, with an organization bent on dismantling the secular tradition of India holding the reins of power at the centre and in many states, Vijayan's bold pronouncements challenging the BJP-RSS combine have a comforting quality. They remind us of the spectre in our midst- dividing people, suppressing women, stifling dissent, while slyly doing the biding of the neoliberal elite. More importantly, they reassure those on the left that all is not lost.

The battle for a secular and democratic India, against a sectarian and totalitarian RSS, is winnable. Pinarayi Vijayan is proof of that.
