Mosaic of Memories is an autobiography containing a broad sweep of the socio politico economic developments in the territory now constituting Bangladesh from an individual's point of view. The time horizon is roughly the last six decades of the twentieth century. Starting from about the Second World War the chronicles end just at the outset of the 21 Century. The author A.T.M. Shamsul Haque was the Deputy Commissioner of Dhaka on the night of 25 March 1971 and witnessed first hand the brutalities perpetrated on the unarmed Bangalees by the Pakistan Armed Forces. His survival was providential more than once. He is a witness to the developments before and after that dark day. There are intimate details of some of these hitherto unpublished accounts as well as horrendous and hair raising events in this gripping narrative. As the Secretary in charge of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting the author observed the three coups d'etat of 1975 from very close quarters. Information of some interesting behind the scene activities will be found in the book. The author has dealt with the issue of rural development from the experiences he gathered working in the concerned Ministry and in his capacity as Director General of CIRDAP for long eight years. As Chairman Public Administration Reform Commission he has furnished recommendations suitable to our present day needs. Based on his active involvement in politics for about a decade and participation in the General Elections of 1996 and 2001 he has dissected the major deficiencies in our system and offered suggestions that may provide food for thought to those who matter. 270 pp. Seller Inventory # 68736
