Prominent Indian authors Pankaj Mishra and Arundhati Roy have spoken out against the decision to publish and publicize a book by Narendra Modi during Penguin Random House India’s corona virus crisis, while Mishra added an entry on PRH India. Alleged to be “.[ing] In the propaganda campaign of politicians.

In a letter published in the London Review of Books The blog, Mishra wrote a letter to PRH India’s Chief Executive, Gaurav Shrinesh, when he would re-release Modi’s book Exam Warriors after its publisher’s announcement, while, in Mishra’s words, “Collective all over India. Smoke rose from the smoke of funerals. ” India suffered a day-to-day death toll from Code-19 on Wednesday – 4,529 – far more than the official death toll of 283,248.

Describing Modi as “an inspiring leader for the youth”, PRH India has explained the 2018 guide As an “inspiring book for students” that will “be a friend in the face of exams and life.” Modi’s advice Includes: “Don’t just dream of becoming a doctor, engineer or lawyer. Think about how much you can make a difference in society and let this model guide you. And:” Proper feedback is what the other person thinks. Reflects, and does not feel. “

Mishra wrote to Srinivasa: “I am sure you are aware of the frustration with which parents and children are begging the government to postpone exams. Nor do I want you to know about the recent record in Modi’s office.” Needless to say: this list is long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long Long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long long Needless to say, I am more concerned in this context, as Modi is now the ‘author’ of the penguin and with the persecution of writers and journalists by his government. “

Reporters without correspondents are trying to get India to “do its job properly for journalists as one of the most dangerous countries in the world.”

Mishra said: “As a penguin writer, in both the UK and India, I am angry that in the service of Narendra Modi, during the mass slaughter of innocent lives, this image should be kept to itself.” As such, the PRH seems to be a very unpleasant home for writers who see their government as a disaster for India.

In response, Shrinish pointed to the PRH’s publication “Different Range of Voices” and the freedom of its editors. “In these difficult times, we strive to make all our books available to our readers,” he wrote. “We value each author’s ideas and opinions, as diverse as they can be, and much of your note.” Appreciate.”

Pointing to photos of Mark Zuckerberg embracing Modi, Mishra told the Guardian that US social media companies have activated “Hindu supremacy” because India is a lucrative market, and “mostly Indian newspapers and magazines.” Has either been crushed or supported by Hindu superiors. ”

“Given this bleak situation, PRH and other external influences in India have a huge responsibility to keep the public sphere alive and the potential for intellectual and creative life,” he said. “Some of them may decide that they are another company trying to make a profit in the ’emerging’ market, and they cannot afford to take a stand against violence and prejudice. Nevertheless, like Modi It is a far cry in this direction for a person to be caught in the middle of a mass massacre caused by his arrogance and vanity.

Opinion, Who earlier this month made a heartfelt claim to Modi that he should “step aside” and let someone else deal with the spread of India’s deadly queerness.She said she “would like Modi and all his sayings and books to retreat into the Himalayan caves and never come to light again.”

He pointed out that after a lawsuit alleging “harassment” against a University of Chicago professor, Penguin India “humiliated itself” by withdrawing Wendy Doniger’s book The Hindus in 2014. What “[ing] The religious sentiments of millions of Hindus.

“Publishing Modi’s Exam Warriors is a form of self-deprecation, which makes it even more ridiculous. Mystery about Modi’s degrees – BA was obtained through correspondence at the age of 28 and did MA in ‘Puri Political Science’ from a Gujarat University who had never done such a course. He said any attempt to verify the veracity of his claims about his degrees, which he made before taking the oath in the 2014 elections, has been thwarted by universities, the Election Commission and the courts. So we don’t know what test this test warrior took (if any).

Rai said the Modi government and its Hindu nationalist supporters had put “massive pressure” on publishers and literary events in the last few years. He said that almost every institution has been tilted and pushed at its own discretion, now they are looking for the status of ‘mainstream’ writers invited to mainstream programs. Many publishers and leftists have committed suicide. Having said that, I would also like to say that my own editor at Penguin India has published and set up all my work, fiction as well as non-fiction. Much of this is a direct attack on Modi and his criminal government.

PRH India has been contacted by the Guardian for comment.
