AN OUTSIDER EVERYWHERE: Revelations by an Insider (Paperback)

By M.K. Kaw

M.K. Kaw, the author of Bureaucrazy fame is known for his style imbued with humour and pen dipped in satire. Here he takes a look at his own life. There are revelations about the exploits of politicians and bureaucrats. Kaw has manfully resisted the temptation to deliver high-sounding sermons at hapless juniors in the service. He has instead concluded with tongue-in-cheek aphorisms camouflaged as 'pearls of wisdom'.
