    Ek Hi Zindagi Kaafi Nahi is an honest and sensational autobiography of former Minister in charge of External Affairs, Natwar Singh.

    Summary of the Book

    Ek Hi Zindagi Kaafi Nahi is the Hindi translation of the Natwar Singh’s autobiography titled One Life is Not Enough. The author presents a detailed account his life as a bureaucrat, politician, and cabinet minister. He writes about his experiences as a vital player in Indian politics and sets the record straight on several issues, including the Volcker Report controversy. Natwar Singh joined the Indian Foreign Services and served as a bureaucrat for over three decades. He became an integral part of the Congress Party in 1984, and was inducted as a Minister of State in Rajiv Gandhi’s council. In this explosive memoir, the former cabinet minister writes about his experiences in various ministries. In his glittering career, Singh has been a part of some of the most epochal events of independent India. Natwar Singh was very closely associated with the Congress Party and in 2002 when the party came back to power, he was appointed as the Minister of External Affairs. His eventful career came to a controversial end when his name appeared in the Volcker Report in 2005. This forced him to resign from the cabinet and eventually from the Congress party. He also talks about his stint in the MEA when he witnessed the Indo-China talks that concluded in the war of 1962. Natwar Singh also talks about Pakistan under the rule of Zia-ul-Haq and Indo-USSR relations among other controversial and sensational topics. This book will make for an engaging and intriguing read for those interested in the life and career of Natwar Singh.

    One Book is Enough

    Pedestrian prose. Eminently forgettable. Mr Singh labors to create the impression of being a well read and erudite man and ends up coming across as a tourist, ticking off places visited on a map.

    One life is enough

    I'm fond of the author for his elegant prose and wit. The book is a sum of many parts; those many parts were part of his earlier books. Therefore, the book in part is a rehash and interest flags. I have liked the author's style of writing. I had not read about his early life before. So, that part is riveting. The piece on Rajiv is charming, written with great warmth. The piece on Morarji was there in Walking With Lions and yet it made me read it with intterest again.

    Good read

    Full of political anecdotes.
    Book is mainly about Natwar SIngh as an IFS officer.
    Less about Natwar Singh - as a person - less private life content. More about Natwar Singh's public life.
    Political anecdotes keep the book alive.

    Good Book

    If you would like to know about bureaucracy and what they do, how they do and how they influence with political leader, if good book for you otherwise it's boring. First few chapter is very boring, since they have talked about their childhood, i think one is care about that. Most of people bought this book for Sonia Gandhi controversy but nothing much for the same, if you are looking only that part , so i would not recommend you.

    Natwar Singh's Autobiography

    It's a fantastic book giving the reader an insight of what happens in foreign service and politics..the book has evoked more interest in topics which were touched upon but not dwelled in detail..The Srilankan saga was very informative ..The journey from Nehru to Sonia , the muddle crossing at every stage and slippery diplomatic pathway..wow..kudos to Natwar Singh..you cannot have a better person for foreign policy .
    Wish him good health and long life and await his next book..cheers.

    LET TRUTHS PREVAIL

    Still, I have not read the book .However ordered for the same has been placed at on-line book store " Flipkart. Only read the book' summary that has appeared at the site of Flipkart.If Natwar Singh has honestly written the book or reveals all truths, then, it is ok.Common people of India should know the leaders that ruled or rule India.People generally genuinely want their leaders to be honest and faithful for the sake of good governance. To some extent, India is yet to tas...

    Devadas

    One paragraph or one page is not enough to describe the beauty of language Natvar singhji used in his autobiography One life is not enough. Not going too much deep in to his personal life, he has made an honest attempt to caricature his official life in his inimitable style of writing. Every anecdotes he uses to describe his encounters with the who is who of the world takes Natwarsingh to the top of seasoned diplomats our country has ever produced.

    A person who stood shoulder to shoulder ...

    One Life Is Not Enough

    Natwar Singh started off well,his easy style and facility of expression raising high hopes initially. However, it soon deteriorated into factual and all tto brief extracts from his diary and eventually into diatribe against Sonia Gandhi. There are in addition reams of his 'defense' against the Volcker report, very like an affidavit in court, but no light was shed on his own role, or how he was involved in the murky deals.
    The perpendicular pronoun was amply evident throughout. Mr. Singh coul...
