From his student days of `Quit India Movement', Indian Independence, the 1947-48 Jammu & Kashmir Operations, civil service during the turbulent days in the North-East Frontier, diplomatic tumult in Tibet and Afghanistan, and finally, to the mainstream of national bureaucracy including the days of Emergency, Mr KC Johorey has seen it all-the India we see today, he's seein it shape up and evolve. More remarkably, this soldier-civil servant witnessed the momentous events of the days of the Independence and through to the mid-1980s, with a mind dedicated to nationalism and a heart ruled by sense of self-less, honest and effective service to the society and the nation.This book is an account of Mr Johorey's extraordinary journey of service life, which inspired his younger fellow Bengal Sapper, General Banerjee, to record it in the form of this book. Staying clear of personal matters, this book is a narrative of public events participated by Mr Johorey spanning the period of the late 1930s to mid-1980s. Practitioners of political science, public administration and history would find this book particularly fascinating when events and episodes unknown so far are revealed in its pages. Even for general readers, the narrative would reveal so much more than meets the eye.
