Khushwant Singh on the book:
A gripping biography of R.K. Dalmia, the most flamboyant character India produced in the last century. Like a meteor, he flashed across the firmament in a blaze of glory before being reduced to the ashes of ignominy in a prison, convicted of fraud. An odd mixture of Puritanism and profligacy, and a sadist who tortured his family of six wives and eighteen children, he broke all the laws of God and man. Written by his daughter Neelima Dalima Adhar, who loved him with equal passion, this book makes most compelling reading.
