The narrations are neatly organized in the form of chapters and are independent of each other so that you can pick any chapter to begin with. His detailed account of accompanying Shastri to Tashkent sheds more light on events which have not been disclosed by the Govt. Some of the narrations seems to be based on his hearsay from others. He claims that PVN had sat down for a puja at his house when fundamentalists began demolishing Babri Masjid and he got up from the puja only after it was completely demolished.
