Beyond the Lines: An Autobiography
There is no beyknd throughout the book i felt bored. Not sure why the publishers have called this an autobiography - memoir would have been a better description. Apr 07, Bilal din Malik rated it liked it.
A relevant book not only for people living in India, but on other side of divide too. See 1 question about Beyond the Lines….
Nayar retracted that part after the controversy erupted. The book seems more like a newspaper report the author is a newsman after all.
