    Every Politically Inclined Intellectual should read it !!!

    This book is a treasure trove of information related to India and its Foreign Policy in which RAW played a very significant role.

    The Kaoboys of Raw

    Good one but not excellent.
    The author seems to be loyal more to Gandhi family than anything else!
    His non-stop praise for IG and RG proves this.

    Clever author

    As we know the author was a R&AW agent formerly. You will probably not be surprised when you see that most of the incidents in this book has been described vary vaguely without letting much actual information in.
    Live with that.
