We're delighted to announce the sale of Swaniti Foundation's Rwitwika Bhattacharya Agarwal's book for aspiring politicians to HarperCollins India.


In the last five years, I have interfaced with a host of people: frompoliticians to reporters to civil society activists to bureaucrats. But the demographic that truly touches my heart have been the passionate young professionals who want to serve their country through politics.

This book is for them. From working with the most promising, ethical and professional politicians to sitting across the table from the most despicable, devious and mischievous politicians, I have learned that each elected official’s story has lessons for aspiring politicians.Today, as I see the rise of the Aam Admi Party and with it the entry of a new generation of leaders, I am hopeful that there are many more young citizens, keen to enter politics but requiring guidance. This book will hopefully provide some insights about how to enter and thrive,ethically, in politics.
