A narrative which is both lucid and felicitous, author discusses a wide range of subjects.
A book worth reading for two reasons - one it contains the thoughts of a man of high learning and , secondly, it shows the deliberate neglect of these thoughts on the part of the rulers of India.
The author brings a razor sharp mind to bear on the myriad subjects he touches, ranging from the noble constitution of India, the man-made malaise seizing India from time to time, eminent personalities, to the daunting task of redesigning India for the 21st century. The convoluted Problems that India is heir to, and confronted with, are analyzed, and unalike most arm-chair critics and analysts, solutions are suggested.
Palkhivala's mordant wit runs like a silver thread through the book, making it compelling reading.
