Penguin Random House India announced Monday (April 8) the acquisition of the first writing venture by Manish Sisodia, who is a politician in Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Delhi’s Education Minister.

To be titled Shikhsha: A Journey, his debut book will release in September 2019. According to Penguin, it will be a story of reformation and his experiences in transforming the public education system in Delhi.

“Shiksha: A Journey by Manish Sisodia will capture his experiences as Delhi’s education minister,” said Premanka Goswami, senior commissioning editor at Penguin Random House India.

Positioned as a book of hope, Penguin believes it will interest a wide spectrum of readers, including those exploring ideas of a welfare state, in the present and the future.

Manish Sisodia will recount this journey of raising the bar of public education in the state and the challenges he overcame to improve the infrastructure and quality of schooling. Slated to be a candid anecdotal narration, according to Penguin, this book will engage readers to know more about transforming a vision to a reality.

“The transformation of each public school in Delhi is a story in itself,” Sisodia said, adding that this book is going to be a document about ‘Idea of India through education’.
