Kuldip Nayar is a noted Indian journalist who has been in the field for almost sixty years. He is noted for his highly centre-left columns. Kuldip Nayar has been many things in his life - reporter, editor, detainee during the Indian Emergency, high commissioner to Great Britain , peacenik, Rajya sabha member - but what he does best is explore the byzantine maze of Indian politics to provide amplification and clarity of events, issues and personalities.

In a distinguished career spanning sixty years, veteran journalist, political commentator and author Kudip Nayar has seen and reported it all. From his vantage point - at the forefront of every ground-breaking news event, in close proximity to the people in power - Kuldip Nayar's articles are all the more interesting as they are first-hand accounts of historic political events, informed with personal insights into the motives and machinations that conspired to bring them about. From personal encounters with Gandhi, Jinnah, Nehru, and interviews with Mountbatten and Radcliffe, to the 1965 Indo-Pak war and its aftermath, the 1969 Congress split and the liberation of Bangladesh - this book is a compendium of the most important news-stories to break over the last sixty years, told by a man with access to the people in power, and who, in his capacity as information officer, also influenced these decisions.
