Former Minister in charge of External Affairs, Kunwar Natwar Singhs autobiography is an honest, searing account of the veterans life as a bureaucrat, politician, and cabinet minister.

  1.  Engrossing read but highly one sided 24 August, 2014 On
    This book is a very informative read on how international politics works and how the Indian foreign service participates in projecting and improving our country's image in the world. It also captures an insider's account of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty and shows how each of our leaders functioned. Where this book falls short is providing a rigorous basis for forming opinions and judgements. Natwar singh provides his side of the story and does not really accept many shortcomings of which he may have been guilty of (especially with all the material in the press about the Volcker report etc.). Overall a good and entertaining read but neutrality may not be 100%
