Quest for Freedom: Story of an Escape

Surjit Singh Barnala (Author)
Synopsis One midnight in the autumn of 1994, Surjit Singh Barnala, former Union Agriculture Minister, Chief Minister of Punjab and a prime terrorist target, slipped his high security cordon and vanished from sight. There were many reasons for his leaving thus, but the chief one was that he simply wanted to be in touch with real people again. This book tells of his journey across the country and in doing so tells of him, his life and its journey, from his childhood and college days to the beginning of his political career and his later political innings. Woven within this absorbing travelogue are vivid recollections of his long stints in solitary confinement during the emergency and later during operation bluestar, his achievements and challenges as Minister and later as Governor of Tamilnadu. This autobiographical account is not just a classic story of an escape; it is a personalized reflection into history and above all a remarkable portrait of a politician whose career has been marked by quiet courage and a steely resolve to do the right thing, no matter what the consequences.
