    A biography from one of the civil servants of Pakistani Bureaucracy, Syed Munir Husain. The author served in an important time span and was witness as well as privy to momentous events in the history of the country. This being the prime reason that I picked up. He was Deputy Commissioner of Hazara durinh 1959-61 and makes it look like the most important assignment in the country at the time.

The author served in an important time span and was witness as well as privy to momentous events in the history of the country. This being the prime reason that I picked up. He was Deputy Commissioner of Hazara durinh 1959-61 and makes it look like the most important assignment in the country at the time. Hazara being the abode of FM Ayub Khan the then ruler of the country. He was information secretary of West Pakistan during 1965 war as well as Director General Radio Pakistan during the trubulent years between 1966-1969 and witnessed the fall of FM Ayub Khan. He also oversaw the amulgamation of Swat state into Pakistan being assigned the task by the Yahya Khan Janta. Again he was specially selected to be Chief Secretary of Balochistan province during Bhutto era and narrates the times when Army action was going on in the region. However, the history is broad brushed, its rather an effort to catalogue a career. There are anecdotes here and there, authors personal observations about some peronalities make part of the narration; but thats about it all. If one has time to kill and is bent upon reading memoir of a bureaucrat then may be, otherwise I won't recommend this one. The good thing though is that someone has taken up a pen to chronicle his life. Keeping in mind the almost non existence of such an exercise in Pakistan, this is a laudable effort.
