One More Life: 1913-1929
P.N. Haksar has been hailed as the most distinguished public servant of his generation, having served as Secretary and Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister Indira Gandhi from 1967-73. His book a partial autobiography, distilling the first sixteen years of his life, surveying the history of his ancestors, reconstructing their portraits, looking into their foibles and achievements. Examining his family heritage, Haksar also deftly captures the flavor and charm of early twentieth-century India and its first stirrings under Gandhi and Nehru.
