Delhi: Pradeep Goorha, is all set for the release of his second book “Mr Prime Minister, We Shrank the Dragon”. The book, though fiction is inspired by reality revolving around the currently developing story on India’s northern borders along with the perennially neglected Pakistan’s illegal occupation of PoK, Gilgit-Baltistan, and how these could be solved at this opportune time. Goorha has attempted at providing that solution. Befriending Iran at an altogether different level is central to the approach.
Talking about the book, Pradeep Goorha says, “Powerful semantics and widely dispersed optics evoke a sense of suspicion in me. Folks, It isn’t because of current COVID-19 gloom and doom. It probably is my going through the School of Hard Knocks after I finished all schooling that stopped at handing me degrees and things. As a consequence, with me, alarm bells ring when somebody’s hype after numerous other hypes keeps hitting me with sickening regularity. India’s neighbours have been flexing their muscles for some time now. With economic power acquired through cheap trade, they have been influencing other smaller countries in this area and creating a difficult situation. Pakistan is playing in hands of this country and trying to hang on to POK and Balochistan. West didn’t care as long as it was getting stuff 20 to 50 percent cheaper than what they could have produced. Immediate gains, folks, immediate gains has been the mantra.”
He continues to add, “Many Indians sitting in Delhi and in a position of power chose to think afresh. I thought along those lines too. I mean, what on Earth are we dithering about!”
Through his work Goorha hopes to introduce the readers to believe that no problem is as intractable as it may appear. The book is already available on Amazon (online) and multiple retail stores and will be soon available on other online portals.
