Description

In this collage of reminiscences, a veteran diplomat recounts humorous incidents and diplomatic faux pas.

Te narrative spans three continents: Asia, Africa and Europe. It takes us through Tibet, Bhutan, and Sikkim at the height of the Sino-Indian conflict which destroyed Nehru's euphoric vision of Hindi-Chini unity; through Kenya engaged in the movement for self-determination and through Indonesia under Sukarno.

Against the backdrop of a world rife with a Machiavellian ambience of 'spying, secrecy and cloak-and-dagger tactics', Apa Pant meditates on the world of mysticism, occult and spiritualism. He narrates his encounters with this world - encounters which revealed to him a hitherto unknown perspective on life, compelled him to 'feel the full mystery that is life and death' and taught him to 'marvel at the magic moment of the present'.
