Sinha’s story is fascinating and inspiring – a civil servant who reached the top echelons of politics maintaining a high reputation of integrity, credibility, and commitment.” Having worked with three prime ministers and two chief ministers, former administrator and union minister Sinha has been a part of the country’s transformation from a fledging postcolonial democracy to one of the world’s most exciting economies to watch out for – a transformation in which he has played an active role as a parliamentarian, minister for external affairs and two-time finance minister in two vastly different governments. It is also a compelling read for Sinha’s commentary on things as diverse as politics, religion, democracy and its institutions, as well as family, personal struggle and a relentless pursuit of bigger dreams.
