Description

In Trekking Over Pebbles: Life through A Hyderabadi’s Looking Glass, Mohan Kanda, formerly Chief Secretary of Andhra Pradesh and agriculture secretary in the central government, pens a panorama spanning dusty moffusil towns to the political nerve centre in New Delhi. Starting out as a young officer in the Indian Administrative Service in 1968, the author served the government in different capacities, both in his native Andhra and in the nation’s capital. Efficient and honest civil servants are talked about, but what distinguishes Dr Kanda even more, is his deep knowledge of India’s agriculture and especially in the context of the harsh geographical conditions in much of the country.
This book is as much about the challenges of development and of governance, as it is of the historical time of our seventy year young nation. Presidents Giani Zail Singh, Shankardayal Sharma and A P J Abdul Kalam, Prime Minister Narasimha Rao and many other luminaries of Indian public life come alive in these memorable pages. On one hand the book touches upon the roles of prominent leaders and of important civil servants, while on the other, the author sketches the lives of ordinary Indians and everyday events in acute detail and with great empathy. The book is lucid, readable and the author’s reflection on a wide range of governance and national importance is an enriching experience for the reader.
