One holds senior journalist and columnist Seema Goswami’s book, Race Course Road, in their hands and speculations begin all almost immediately. Thoughts of which character could be an embodiment of a real-life person from the world of Indian politics whizz past you, prodding you to find out. But as they say, the greater the wait, the more satisfaction of knowing. Ever since its launch at The Taj Mahal Hotel, New Delhi, on April 3, the book has created a stir of curiosity, as duly expected from a political thriller.

That Goswami has written the novel makes it all the more riveting. As a journalist, she has had access to places and people that the common man can only dream of.

The book revolves around the aftermath of the assassination of a sitting Prime Minister and the political crisis that follows, not without the battle for succession for the coveted position.  The launch was celebrated in the presence of guests including Sonia Gandhi, Sheila Dikshit, Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Anita, Vikramadiya Singh and Chitrangada, Vir Sanghvi, Sonia McLaughlin, the former Irish Ambassador Feilim McLaughlin, Dipak and Barkha Deva and others.

As talk of the book picked pace, whiffs from Executive Chef Arun Sundararaj’s kitchen began to circulate its magic. Out came Rawa Fried Prawns, Shrimp Tempura Rolls, Crispy Pork Belly, Tenderloin Shimeji, and its signature—Kachhe Ghosht Ki Biryani. Whether or not Race Course Road will manage to spice things up, for now, readers are gorging on the robust narrative of this new political drama that races down the annals of history.
