Ullekh N.P., apart from being a successful journalist and working with top media houses in the country like India Today, The Economic Times, and DNA for about two decades, is also a well-known political commentator and author. Currently the executive editor at OPEN Magazine, the constant involvement and exposure he has with the current happenings keeps him well-versed with the political scenario in our country. He is a person who digs deep into the finest details of the political framework, which has in turn made him an acclaimed and knowledgeable political commentator.
It is probably this quality of his that persuaded him to write books so he could provide a detailed and real picture of the political machinery in our country. His first book ‘War Room: The People, Tactics and Technology Behind Narendra Modi’s 2014 Win’, covered the 2014 national elections extensively and how a political brand was built in a country as multi-dimensional as India from the badlands of Uttar Pradesh to the Odisha hinterland, from Modi’s hometown Vadnagar to the capital city’s corridors of power.
