The Unknown Nair PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Unknown Nair free pdf This book is a rare and personal insight into an arm of journalism that has come to be all pervading, through the eyes of a person who has seen it all at close quarters. From a nondescript village in Kerala to India's financial capital Bombay, the journey of Madhav Krishna Bhaskar Nair is a delightful insight into both the pre and post Independence days of economic and business journalism and perhaps life itself. The narrative is peppered with unusual anecdotes like a chance meeting with the Ethiopian emperor in a barber's shop, a scoop while covering a UN conference that drew the ire of PM Indira Gandhi, a meeting in Japan with PM Rajiv Gandhi and IFS officer turned private secretary Mani Shankar Aiyar, a long-running association with the late Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray, a near run-in with West Bengal chief minister Jyoti Basu, and encounters with greats like Balraj Sahni and Prithviraj Kapoor.
