In term of revelation. Not much you can expect, but the narration about PMO secretary N.K Singh, way of working for stalling the sale of non Iodized salt is indeed an eye opener of how bureaucrats in national interest expedite or slow down things and continue to be on right side of their political masters. Simplicity of erstwhile Chief Ministers eg Babu bahi etc was very refreshing. Candid views on politicians with whom the author worked closely was very interesting.
Over all a very good read with simple and engrossing narration.
