Nominated as a Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) in 1997 and earlier honored with the Padma Bhushan by the President of India, and recipient of several literary awards over the years, including felicitation by the World Punjabi Conference 2000 A.D., as Punjabi Writer of the Millennium with ‘Purse’, Kartar Singh Duggal has made an immense contribution to Indian literature. His checkered career in the broadcasting field and as an upcoming litterateur makes an interesting story. In his autobiography here, he pours his pain and pleasure while caught in the midst of the communal divide of the 1940s, leading to the Partition of India. Beautifully recapturing the resonances of the past in a succinct yet objective manner, this book is the account of a man of faith who successfully tides over various crises in his life.
