About the Book:

His Days with Bapu is a book embellished with some interesting snippets about the tumultuous years just before and after India’s independence, some intriguing facts, some brutal home truths.

It is a riveting biographical sketch of a unique man who lived under fifteen Prime Ministers, some of whom he knew personally. Despite his frail health, this personal secretary of Bapu from 1944 - 1948, set his daily routine of gardening and cleanliness aside, and spent hours talking to the author.  Divided into three parts, the book draws a picture of Bapu, seen through Kalyanam’s lenses.  It will indeed be an invaluable treasure for every college and university library and is highly recommended for both, the young and old.
