Heart to Heart is a collection of astonishing essays by K. Natwar Singh, told with charm and vivacity: he describes playing host to C. Rajagopalachari in New York, asking Han Suyin to order his breakfast, regaling heads of state with his characteristic wit and greeting R.K. Narayan on the gravel path leading to his Mysore House. The essays are a refreshing depiction of some of the world's most famous personalities, among them, Gandhi, Churchill, Tagore, Nehru, Nirad C. Chaudhuri, Marquez, Paz, Rajiv Gandhi, Indira Gandhi, Mother Teresa, and Zia-ul-Huq. Providing unusual insights into history and politics, Heart to Heart is a literary work of extraordinary merit, both original and timeless. About the Author K.
