It was the beginning of a fairly long search for identity of the people of East Pakistan and a struggle to assert their rightful place in Pakistan. Drawn on a broad canvas are his experiences as a student activist, a participant in many of the cultural and political movements of the time and later as a socially conscious civil servant. He also covers the brief period of his assignment in the Pakistan Embassy in Belgium in 1970-71 and refers to the Bangladesh independence struggle following the events of March 25, 1971. Reflecting on the issues and events of the time, the author gives accounts of his meetings and conversations with some national leaders, which throw interesting light on their political perceptions, character and personalities. In other cases, he narrates personal experiences, leaving the reader to draw their own conclusions. The author's work in Africa and Europe as a staff member of the World Bank also features. The author's contemporaries will relate to many events narrated by the author from their own experiences. For the later generations, the book provides rich and varied material to trigger their interest in further reading and research, which would lead to a better understanding of the history and politics of the Indian sub-continent from the forties to the mid-seventies.
