Description

The book has no homogeneity nor common theme but is an odd miscellany of many articles, some casual, some serious, but all, when taken together, express the random views written each time with a radical purpose or critical censure.

Says Justice Iyer:

"Viewed as a whole, it reflects the effort I have put in at an advanced age, the ideas contained being my own, at times trivial, at other times profound. Vintage ancedotes creep in although anecdotage is a symptom of dotage. After all, I have crossed four score and ten. Looking in retrospect, this olio reminds me of Winston Churchill."
