My China Diary 1956-88 is an account of K. Natwar Singh's experiences as a diplomat in Beijing, and the events that transpired during Premier Chou En-lai's ill-fated visit to India in April 1960, concluding with Rajiv Gandhi's path-breaking journey to China. Offering new insights about the complexities of Indo-China bilateral relations between 1956 and 1988, My China Diary is illuminating, provocative and unputdownable. About the Author K.
