Satish Jacob From Hotel Palestine Baghdad
Satish Jacob was the only Indian correspondent in Baghdad during the US-led war to topple the Iraqi President. Saddam Hussein. From Baghdad's Hotel Palestine, Satish's spirited reports were the only eyewitness accounts of the drama of those days on Indian television. They were also special in that his perception of the events differed significantly from that of the Western media more prone to accept uncritically the invading armies'version of events. In From Hotel Palestine, Satish Jacob writes of a nation devastated on a whim, and explains Iraq's role in the Arab world, the complex relationships that divide the region's Muslims, Christians and Jews. Above all, he applauds the courage of the Iraqis in this war of unequals, and shows us that while Saddam may be a loathsome monster for some, he is a nation-builder like Turkey's Ataturk to others.
About the Author
Satish Jacob recently retired as Deputy Bureau Chief of the BBC in Delhi, after having served the Corporation for 26 years. During this eventful time, he and Mark Tully made the BBC's bureau in Delhi a household name in India. They co-authored Amritsar-Mrs. Gandhi's Last Battle, a vivid and well-documented account of the rise of Sikh militancy in Punjab and its aftermath that resulted in Mrs Gandhi's tragic death. Satish broke the story of her assassination to a stunned nation on 31 October 1984. However, Satish considers his coverage of the US-led war to topple Saddam Hussein to be the most moving assignment he has ever done. He was the only Indian correspondent stationed in Baghdad then. The drama and horror of those days is a haunting memory that turns a war correspondent's notes into a chronicle of the death of a proud civilization. This is Satish Jacob's first independent book.
