In a distinguished career spanning sixty years, veteran journalist, political commentator and author Kuldip Nayar has seen and reported it all. From his vantage point at the forefront of every ground-breaking news event, in close proximity to and in close confidence of the people in power, Kuldip Nayar’s articles are all the more fascinating as they give us a first-hand account of historic political events, along with personal insights into the motives and machinations that conspired to bring them about.

From personal encounters with Gandhi, Jinnah and Nehru, and interviews with Mountbatten and Radcliffe, to the controversy surrounding Shastri’s death in Tashkent, the 1965 Indo-Pak war and its aftermath, the 1969 Congress split, the liberation of Bangladesh, the assassination of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and the imposition of the Emergency in India-Kuldip Nayar’s scoops are as much a testament of the times as they are of his uncanny reporter’s gift for anticipating the news.
