KNS gives a very good insight into the matter he is talking about. If one could read between lines, it is full of timeless wisdom.
It's a pity that most of the coverage the book and author got was for trivial reasons. Actually, those interviewers missed the complete point. KNS presented a whole tree, but media trivialised it to a tiny branch.
Purchase and delivery was a nice experience and got the book in pristine condition. Seller deserves credit for good packaging and timely service.
Right from the very beginning the writer labors to show his acquaintances with great authors and contemporary writers like E.M. Forster, J. R. Ackerlay, L. Dickinson, R.K. Narayan, Ahmad Ali, Santha Rama Rao and many others as a result of which the book smacks of a literary flavor and reverts with echoes of poetic allusions like 'only connect' and 'Two Cheers for Democracy' from E.M. Forster and many other eminent writers which add a literary dimension to the book.
Initial part of the book interested me more , as it revolves around colonial India and it's social elements. The chapter on Sonia Gandhi is a bit let down , expected some more straight forward criticisms . Too much words have been wasted to prove innocence from Volker allegation .
"Every truth has two sides; it is well to look at both, before we commit ourselves to either." now lets wait as Sonia Gandhi has promised that she too will write a book of her own.
Over all Its a good read
Hope this helps you
Sh Singh, being a diplomat has good command over the choice of his words. The book takes the reader along with it and he never feels apart from the story.
