Beyond the Lines: An Autobiography (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 411

Beyond The Lines examines the effects of the Indo-Pakistan partition and the eventual downfall of relations through the eyes of a man who lived through it: Kuldip Nayar.

Summary of the Book

Kuldip Nayar was a young law student during the Partition. Forced to migrate to Delhi, he faced first-hand the brunt of the communal riots that ensued. In his autobiographical account, Nayar shows us how he began as a young journalist in an Urdu daily, progressing to heading India's most popular news agency. His life crossed paths with events such as the Tashkent Declaration and with people like Lal Bahadur Shastri and Jayaprakash Narayan. His story covers facets of our nation we have yet to experience.

About Kuldip Nayar

Kuldip Nayar is an Indian journalist, human rights activist and author. He has penned several books, some of which are: Without Fear: The Life and Trial of Bhagat Singh, India After Nehru, Scoop!: Inside Stories from Partition to the Present and Report on Afghanistan.

Nayar graduated from the Medill School of Journalism, Northwestern University.

Why certain people are truthful ? ...some hypocrite

Beautifully written book.

This book takes one back to the early 20th century India. One gets to read what actually may have happened during the various stages of India's independences and the immediate years thereafter.
What is interesting is lots of narratives in first person accounts.
A good read for someone inte…

Disappointing beyond Belief

For someone of Kuldip Nayar's reputation the book is of shockingly poor quality.

Easily verifiable facts are mis-stated e.g. "After Shaikh Abdullah's death in 1953.." (page 318),in 1979 "Foreign Secretary T N Kaul formulated a pro-Soviet policy (page 274-Kaul had retired in the early 1970's),Indira Gandhi was woken up by "Chief of Army Staff Krishnaswami Sunderji.." at the time of Operation Blue Star (page294- Gen Vaidya was Army Chief at that time) etc.

And what does one make of this sentence on page 318: "In fact, I was in Srinagar on Abdullah's Shaikh invitation to celebrate Farooq's su

A reporter's diary

Reading Kuldip Nayar’s autobiography – Beyond the Lines (Roli Books). Nayar is the sort of person – even whose best friends would find it difficult to understand the reasons for his rise to such fame. His writing style is lackluster. He lacks the intellectual depth of say – B G Verghese, erudition of Sham Lal or even Khushwant Singh’s knowledge of history. His gossipy tidbits and juicy nuggets are often – part conjecture and part concoctions and have to be consumed with a large dollop of salt. He indulges in sweeping generalizations (Bengalis are “anti-centre” – we are anti-everything!!) is

Its pure Gossip with few events

I found it more a gossip than a book with Authentic book on events and its least a biography. Kuldip Nayyar gives food for Gossip only. Many of his narrations seem like baseless construction of his own mind. Earlier reviewr's have mentioned the few basic mistakes in chronology and persons.

The book has been a success beyond its worth probably because it suit an average reader giving him stories to speculate. Nayar seems to have sharp business acumen.

KULDIP NAYAR - A ONE TIME IDOL OF JOURNALISM

Yes, he was a one time Idol. During 1970s his by line "Between the Lines' was immensely popular and his conduct during emergency years earned acclaim to him as a champion of free media based on which his book The Judgement sold like hot cake. That book was precursor for journalistic fiction and a writing style as if he was present when the events were taking place, or he was watching probably through a proverbial key hole. Having earned the fame of a free Journalist, is he free from prejudices, the most dangerous of all the imprisonments a journalist can suffer from! Subsequent years proved

However his chapter related to Bluestar and Rajya Sabha are a good read. He had held goverment office and had close ties with powerful politicians yet he failed to produce any notable reference in the book. However he never failed to flaunt his judgements of any person or event. Selective Read.
