Nayar’s writing is pedestrian. A very good book for readers interested in Indian history post independence. Had his writings in his career been biased towards behond certain party or a family, he would have become the President of India today But as a honest journalist, he had always been critical of the wrongdoings of Govts, irrespective of their party. Recommended iuldip Sunday Magzine. He presents, Yasin Malik, the hard-line Hurriyat separatist who is responsible for the death of hundreds of Kashmiri Pandits, as a mild mannered, Gandhian who believes in democratic and peaceful protests.

An exciting and informative book! If we are able to relate this events with current situation we will understand that the Hindi Was never our National language.


The book is let down by too serious a tone. The part on the major migration that was witnessed during independence is quite overwhelming. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

The post-Indira part suffers from a lack of detail, perhaps indicating that the author may no more have been close to the center of power in New Delhi. This book is naayar yet featured on Listopia. An Autobiography by Kuldip Nayar.
