Description

On 21 May 1991, Wajahat Habibullah, then the commissioner of Kashmir (constituting the valley and the two districts of Ladakh), had returned home after inspecting a mysterious fire at Dalgate, Srinagar. Much to his dismay, there had been another fire, one that left him devastated: an RDX explosion in the south Indian town of Sriperumbudur had taken the life of India's sixth prime minister, Rajiv Gandhi.My Years with Rajiv is an endearing account of a friendship that turned into an administrative partnership, one that gave Habibullah an acute insight into Rajiv Gandhi's political life. But equally, in this lucid memoir, recounting his years in the Indian Administrative Service, particularly at the Prime Minister's Office, he walks us through the last three decades of the twentieth century-in many ways, the most formative years of Indian history.
