About this Item

viii, 359 pages, size 8.5 inches tall by 5.5 inches, with an index. Illustrated with black and white plates. ' Rashid has had the advantage of a more varied career than most men. His book therefore recounts life as he lived it in widely contrasting situations and appointments beginning with his 14 years' stay in England. These years cover his life at a British public school, Clifton, and later his days at Sandhurst where he qualified for the Indian Army as it functioned in the time of the British raj. He was appointed Sheriff of Bombay at the early age of 36. For some valuable years he was closely associated with Mr. Jinnah in the capacity of an able aide and lieutenant. He finally broke away from the Quaid-i-Azam on the issue of Pakistan. Rashid, with his always questing outlook, began his politi cal apprenticeship and education at a comparatively early age. There are chapters also on his diplomatic life in such exotic places as Pondicherry, Goa, the Philippines and Iran where he finally concluded his official career. Here is something for everybody to enjoy and often to reflect on. It is a book of light and shadow, of the informal and starchily formal, of the serious and the comic and reflects a deeply intelligent, informed interest in men and events in many countries of the world, not least in India.
