About the book:A biography of an illustrious father by an illustrious son! The title could perhaps well Be A Jurists Among Statesman! For, in the Constituent Assembly which heralded the constitution of India, Dr. Alladi Krishnaswami was the only jurist in a crowd of statesmen from Jawaharlal Nehru downwards-not even Dr. Ambedkar who had yet to grow to the full height of his stature in the realm of constructive legal thinking.
More details: This book belongs to a genru of literature calling for an excellence in the narration of events and in the balanced assessment of human characters, both the events and characters clustering around an eminent personage recalled to lifewith the deft touches of reminiscence. The personage thus recalled to life reminds us effectively "The heights by great men reached and kept Were not attained by sudden flight; But they while their companions slept Were toiling upwards in the night." To know Alladi the father was to love him, as everybody known to him even in the slightest would affirm. This book by the son bids fair to be a source of parennial inspiration to strangers, no less.
