Book Description Hachette India, 2013. Softcover. Condition: New. Tavleen Singh was not even twenty five when she joined the Statesman as a junior reporter. This memoir begins from the time the Emergency was declared by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in the year 1975. The book unravels the nation?s distressed state of waiting for a change in politics in those unfortunate years. Post Indira?s assassination in the year 1984, Rajiv Gandhi came to power. But the intricacies of India?s myriad faces were still unattended as ineffectiveness and nepotism plagued the highest levels of government at the centre. This book chronicles the story of India?s struggle in those unsettled years. The calamities, carnage and revolts, both internal and external have been overwhelmingly recorded by the author who was, at one point of time, one of the insiders involved in society dinners and election campaigns with some of the authoritative leaders in the same corridors of power.
