In the stomach of India, Hyderabad was like a 'cancer' and if it had not joined the country and had chosen to remain independent it would have been a real problem. K M Munshi was India's Agent General in Hyderabad and gives a vivid account of the happenings of that period of time which was turbulent, full of intrigues, political moves and sensation.Today's generation may find it history but at that time it was happening and a part of life. From January 5 to September 21, 1948 the author spent his time in Hyderabad, negotiating, making decisions, talking, giving speeches. The incidents of that tumultuous period have been recreated and make interesting reading.
