Caterpillar in The Salad

Arvind Bhandari (Author)
Synopsis These are the memoirs of a journalist. Arvind Bhandari takes the reader through the vicissitudes of his eventful and adventurous life, unfolding a story that is at once interesting and evocative, rumbustious and thought-provoking. Whereas autobiographies generally do not tell more than 75 percent of the truth, Arvind Bhandari claims to have been courageous enough to speak the truth 90 percent. As a result, the narrative is spiced with romantic interludes, bawdy humour and sexual peccadilloes. Included in these memoirs are pen portraits of Atal Behari Vajpayee, Morarji Desai,Indira Gandhi, Charan Singh and other influential politicians. The author has also described his encounters with prominent cricketers, well-known bureaucrats, colourful ambassadors, top businessmen and leading journalists. Woven into this variegated mosaic are several vignettes to make a riveting autobiography.
