Description

About the Book:

Dr. Karan Singh was born in 1931 as heir to the then princely state of Jammu & Kashmir and was catapulted into political life at the early age of eighteen. In 1949 he was appointed Regent by his father Maharaja Hari Singh at the intervention of Jawaharlal Nehru, and thereafter he was continuously head of Jammu & Kashmir for a further eighteen years - as Regent up to 1952, as elected Sadar-I-Riyasat from 1952 to 1965, and as Governor from 1965 to 1967. In 1967 Dr. Karan Singh was inducted into the Union Cabinet and, at thirty-six, was the youngest person ever to become a Central Cabinet Minister in India. On this appointment, he resigned his governorship and was elected to Parliament. He was Member of Parliament for the next eighteen years and held several major Cabinet posts.

Dr. Karan Singh is active in a number of associated fields: as Chairman of the Temple of Understanding, an international inter-faith organization; as President of the People's Commission on Environment and Development; as President of the International Centre for Science Culture and Consciousness; as President of India International Centre; as Chairman of the Auroville Foundation; and as a Member of the Club of Rome and Unesco International Commission on Education for the Twenty-first Century. He has lectured on Indian culture and Philosophy on five continents, and is well known throughout the world as a thinker and statesman of modern India.

Initially published in hardback in two separate volumes, Dr. Karan Singh's widely acclaimed autobiography is now made available as a single volume, illustrated paperback with a new, substantial Preface specially written for this edition. It covers a tumultuous period in Indian history, including the dawn of freedom, the momentous politics of Jammu & Kashmir and its accession to India, the conflicts with China and Pakistan, and the period of Jawaharlal Nehru and Lal Bahadur Shastri's prime ministership. Parallel with outer developments, the autobiography describes Dr. Karan Singh's spiritual quest and inner growth in his search for the profounder truths.
