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.
