Description

A Tide in the Affairs of Men are reminiscences of a senior administrative officer from his working in the secretariat in the central government and in the state of Madhya Pradesh to his varied experiences during other relevant postings. From handling students' agitation in the Guna district of Madhya Pradesh in 1964 to his special posting in Baglad...esh after the liberation of East Pakistan in 1971; and from his years in Manila as executive director in the ADB to working closely with Dr Manmohan Singh as revenue secretary, the narrative is a public servant's journey that relooks at some of the important milestones with passion and candour.
