Book Description
Born into the formidable nehru clan, b.k nehru had a lot to live up to . This he did, and brilliantly, becoming one of india's most distinguished civil servants. Educated at allahabad university, the london school of economics and oxford, b.k. nehru joined the indian civil service in 1934 and embarked on an outstanding career during which he represented india at the post world war II reparations conference and the sterling balances negotiations with britain, served as india's ambassador in the usa and high commissioner in the uk, and refused the offer of the un secretary generalship, one of the few decisions he regretted having made. these memoirs are enriched by unique insights into the momentous events that shaped modern india: the freedom struggle, the partition, the indo- pak and indo- china wars, the insurgencies in the north east and the tragedy of kashmir. there are also unforgettable portraits of personalities like motilal and jawaharlal nehru, jack and jackie kennedy, sheikh abdullah and indira gandhi. Spanning almost the whole of the twentieth century, nice guys finish second is the record of a truly remarkable life.
