    Description
    A searing indictment of the suspension of democracy In June 1975, a state of Emergency was declared, where civil liberties were suspended and the press muzzled. In the dark days that followed, Coomi Kapoor, then a young journalist, personally experienced the full fury of the establishment. Meanwhile, Indira Gandhi, her son Sanjay and his coterie unleashed a reign of terror that saw forced sterilizations, brutal evictions in the thousands, and wanton imprisonment of many, including Opposition leaders. This gripping eyewitness account vividly recreates the drama, the horror, as well as the heroism of a few during those nineteen months when democracy was derailed.

    A Good Read.

    Coomi Kapoor has explained her perception/side of emergency in a very coherent way. It's a must read for those who are unaware about emergency specially younger generation.
    Author has made her best attempt to be unbiased about the events as much as she can in spite of being victim of the Emergency effect.
    Over all, A Good Read.
