Jun 22, Sambasivan rated it really liked it. Their initial idealism begins to diminish within a few years of service and they gradually become part of the furniture. This a a no nonsense account of events in Mr. Nayar’s affiliations, you will not find anything on the plight of Kashmiri Pandits.

Not sure why the publishers have called this an autobiography – memoir would have been a better description.
Beyond the Lines: An Autobiography by Kuldip Nayar
Since he was close to the establishment during the 90s you would expect him to write something about that too, nada, you will find a mention of the Kashmir Pandits somewhere at the end of the book. He also conveys the power of his influence on various decisions made, but at the same time attempts to take a humble stance that he wasn’t an influencer. For example, although he was arrested during emergency for 3 months without reasonbeyind in a dirty prison, and had beoynd Indira in his weekly articles, he felt that the nation would have become much stronger, had the emergency lasted for another year or two.

Beyond the Lines: An Autobiography
Though, after reading the book, i have a very pessimistic view on Indian politics and its foreign relations, Mr Nayar has put an extra effort to give the book an optimistic tint.
