Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0143425420, Paperback)

Writer, educationist and threetime Lok Sabha MP from Kolkata, Krishna Bose gives a compelling account of her journey from the time she was a schoolgirl witnessing the Partition to her stint as chairperson of the parliamentary standing committee on external affairs. Married into the family of Subhas Chandra Bose, she makes acute yet sympathetic observations that illuminate the changing world of the Kolkata intelligentsia from the 1940s to the present day. Offering a ringside view of the drama of election campaigns, the complexities of parliamentary politics and the forces shaping India s foreign policy at the turn of the new millennium, this understated but elegantly written autobiography combines intimate family and social history with a gripping political memoir.
