Strictly Personal, Manmohan and Gursharan : Daman Singh
A book Strictly Personal, Manmohan and Gursharan written by Daman Singh was published on 5 August 2014. The book is the untold story of Manmohan Singh, India’s thirteenth Prime Minister, and his wife.
About the Book
The book is not about Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister but about Manmohan Singh, the family man whose life and loved ones were caught up in the maelstrom of history. The author reiterates the fact that other than Jawaharlal Nehru, no other Prime Minister has had such an influence on India and her economic policies as Manmohan Singh.
She also tries to reconcile the intellectual picture she has of her father with his portrayal in the media and comes with a picture of great complexity. Daman Singh enlightens her readers about the life and struggle of her father – as a young boy, he lost his mother to eternity, and his family to the partition.
