Subbulakshmi and Jyoti Basu were defined by the epoch they lived in and they; in turn; defined it. Their legacies are part of our lore; not yet of our understanding. Of a Certain Age celebrates twenty such individuals with charming biographical sketches. Gopalkrishna Gandhi illuminates key moments in their lives with personal knowledge; conversations and correspondence. He offers us little-known facts; vivid portrayals of their vulnerabilities and strengths and touches upon the qualities that made them the stuff of legend. In sketches that are sympathetic and frank; intimate and objective; Gopalkrishna Gandhi analyses the public and political trajectories of these figures and explores the events that connect them to the broader horizon of history. Written in elegant and fluid prose; Of a Certain Age provides valuable insights to understanding these remarkable men and women who shaped events in the twentieth century and had a considerable impact on the subcontinent we know today." 9780670085026
