About The Book

"Before and after the Second World War, India had to face many challenges in getting Independence from British rule and maintaining the sovereignty, security, integrity, social upliftment and good governance of the country despite all odds. This book covers a period stretching from the heyday of the British Raj to the 'Indianisation' of the empire in the late colonial period to the Independence and Partition of the country; the Nehruvian decades; wars with China and Pakistan, the Emergency years; and up to the Prime Ministership of Narendra Modi.

Various revelations in the book provide a largely first-hand account of what it was like to live through some of the momentous changes that our country underwent during this period. The incidents presented here provide reflections on important historical, political, administrative landmarks and personages.

Lt Gen SK Sinha, the author, has combined anecdotes with historical facts and observations with comments. Anyone who has devoted so many decades of his life-in Sinha's case, seven decades holding key positions-to service of the Nation, invites upon himself the responsibility to share his self-portrait, in the form of memoirs, with his countrymen. The book chronicles the Nation's joys and sorrows, its achievements and failures, also its current problems and future potential for readers to reflect upon.

The book reveals that when General Sinha voluntarily resigned as Vice-Chief of Army Staff in 1983, after he was superseded for the post of Chief of Army Staff, he received laurels from both high-ups and the public at large. From the mother of a soldier, "Mother India is still giving birth to such worthy sons who do not hesitate to give up their job with dignity and selflessness." Another incident reveals that it took 35 years to settle the dues of Field Marshal Manekshaw, just a few days before his death and that too on the intervention of former hon'ble President APJ Abdul Kalam-all due to the red-tapism of bureaucracy. The book also highlights that Mountbatten, Muhammad Ali Jinnah and the Khan of Kalat, signed a tripartite agreement at Delhi on 4 August 1947 providing for Baluchistan to revert to its 1876 status. Thus Baluchistan became Independent on 11 August 1947 and remained Independent till 11 March 1948. Pakistan Army's invasion forced Baluchistan to accede to Pakistan on 27th March 1948.

Such historical anecdotes and many more enlighten the readers through personal stories meant to compliment what we know about the times. Thus the book Raj to Swaraj is a must for defence officers, policy-makers, politicians, administrators and students of public administration and history."
