The name itself is an institution in itself. Mr Kuldeep Nayar’s epic book is immensely readable due to the multitudes of anecdotes he shares of famous people Nehru, Shastri, Indira, Vajpayee, Gujral, Ayub Khan, Bhutto, Muzib all in first hand accounts. Having watched the political drama in very close quarters he comes out with many nuggets hitherto unknown. A must read for all who have even slight interest in modern Indian history.

Deserved to have been edited better. At times, one feels one’s going through someone’s personal diary.
A good walkthru history Author has penned down his experiences as his professional career advanced, with some of his insider experiences and ,uldip views – which u may or may not agree with. More of memoirs than an autobiography.
