He presents, Yasin Malik, the hard-line Hurriyat separatist who is responsible for the death of hundreds of Kashmiri Pandits, as a mild mannered, Gan This a a no nonsense account of events in Mr.

Vallabh bhai Patel to Jawaharlal Nehru inafter the china’s encroachment over Tibet.

As a journalist nayar sahib has taken up political dimensions of his past which shaped the present institutions of the countryas a matter of fact that shaped lives of millions of people.

To me, the best part was the Annexures.

But then that’s ok as Nayar makes it amply clear that it is the history of Modern India that he is going to share from his perspective – his perspective from being right in the center of power circles! A must read for all who have even slight interest in modern Indian history. This book is not yet featured on Listopia.

Nayar retracted that part after the controversy erupted. He is a self-proclaimed pro-Kashmiri, pro-Muslim writer. Husain peddling his art work from door to door on his bicycle and Kuldip refusing to buy a painting from Husain inspite of a huge discount offered by Husain, anecdotes of how Nehru spent an hour in the parliament discussing about ways to ensure smooth traffic during VIP visits because Edwina was stuck in a traffic jam the previous day, and many such anecdotes.

Since he was close to the establishment during the 90s you would expect him to write something about that too, nada, you will find a mention of the Kashmir Pandits somewhere at the end of the book. Personally, I felt a page book or two volumes of page each would have been justified, due to the fact that being a Journalist who was popular for his scoops, he might have more insights to share.

Refresh and try again. Dec 21, Shadin Pranto rated it it was amazing.
