Mail to Daggubati on The other side of Truth

This is the email that I sent to Dr.Daggubati Venkateswara Rao garu on "The other side of truth". I could not find his email address, so, I sent it to his wife D.Purandeswari.

Hello Dr.D.Venkateswara Rao garu,

First let me congratulate for writing the book, "The other side of truth". I specially want to congratulate you for releasing this book on your website for free. This is one great step that you had taken, which everyone should follow. I know many hypocrites who says, they are not writing books for money, but never release the books for free. Even the books of Mahatma Gandhi came to public domain, only because of the expiration of copy right of the books. You are an ideal person in that. Let's hope others also follow you in this.

When you announced that, you are going to write a book before the elections, I felt you should release the book before the elections itself. But, after reading the book, I think you have done the correct thing by releasing it after the elections. Since, there are no elections in the foreseeable future, it is clear that, you will not get any political advantage by doing this. Had you released this book before the elections, there may be impression that, for political advantage, you might have written incorrectly. Now, we can believe everything that you have written.

There are two mistakes that I observed in the book. I hope you will correct these mistakes in your next print.

First one is, in the chapter, "NTR wins struggle, regains kingdom", you mentioned that, B.J.P. won only two seats. One was Mr.Vajpayee and another one was Mr.Janga Reddy. Actually, in that elections, even Mr.Vajpayee lost. The other M.P. who won from B.J.P. was A.K.Patel from Mehsana (Gujarath).

Second one is, in the chapter, "Rajiv Gandhi Assassinated", you mentioned that, V.P.Singh was the prime minister of India in 1991. But, V.P.Singh became Prime Minister on 2nd Dec 1989, and he resigned on 10th Nov 1990. For the first half of 1991, the Prime Minister was Chandrasekhar, and for the second half, the Prime Minister was P.V.Narasimha Rao.
