Pradeep Goorha is all set for the release of his second book Mr. Prime Minister, We Shrank the Dragon, four years after his debut historical fiction Survival Redux. Mr. Prime Minister, We Shrank the Dragon, though fiction, is inspired by reality revolving around the currently developing story on India’s northern borders along with the perennially neglected PoK, Gilgit-Baltistan, and how these could be solved at this opportune time.
Goorha has attempted at providing that solution. Befriending Iran at an altogether different level is central to the approach.
“My entire education and life as a senior corporate executive have been tailored around problem-solving. We identify a problem in every possible way, look at the external and internal variables, and then find a solution.
So the approach was what solution can India find whereby it can take care of Pakistan and China at one go. And that’s where Balochistan suggested itself,” explains Pradeep.
While adding how Balochistan is a solution to the present problem in the country, he says, “If Balochistan becomes independent, China, CPEC and border forces will be severely hurt and Pakistan will lose Balochistan which is one of their gold mine provinces.” The author adds that it’s his problem-solving attitude that made him write the book.
The author is already planning for a sequel and also looks forward to writing an autobiography soon. “The autobiography will be light-hearted, bringing what we went through in those old times. The career pressures, families, and so on,” shares the 74-year-old man with some innumerable experiences in life.
Mr. Prime Minister, We Shrank the Dragon is available on Amazon and multiple retail stores, and will soon be available on other online portals.
