Kashmir and it's challenge shown my the TV media is so negative and frustrating to anybody outside Kashmir. This book let's you understand is internal challenges and options. The capturing of events and progress and missed opportunities are a great revelation. A must read for everyone who wants to understand the true effort by govt agencies to help Kashmir.

The book is an eye opener towards Pakistanis interference and it's motive.

Very well captured..

Even though PV's autobiography talks about a lot of topics covered in this book, what I really liked is the way the year 1991 is described and discussed in this book. This book also establishes the due credit PV deserves - oh boy what a statesman he is. This book draws a level about the linking and the nature of India towards a particular family - the adverse effect of such a belief on a country like India - the undemocratic approach followed by statesman and politicians to cloud the inefficiency of few people for their individual greatness. This book lives a lasting legacy of a great politician and a balancer - a true leader who is yet to get the credit he deserves.

Overall a must read for an Indian.

There are few topics which are repeated many times across the book - though they seem to be "in your face episodes" I guess the author needed them to make a point to drive the story...

I felt like I have been cheated by my government by hiding the atrocities of the imperial English rule. Its such a shame that we as Indians are not even made aware about the clinical process adopted by the East India company / British government to decimate and discard our traditions and values. Even to this day, our education system is following the slavery model..

I feel, this book should be considered as a text book for Class VIII and above by retaining the sections where the author refers to the British rule alone... all references to the post Independence rule should be removed since they appear to be biased

I also don't appreciate the author when he points out a particular Indian Government when he refers to Hindus.
