Reshi Dev, a life–long political activist of Kashmir, hopped in and out of almost all major political parties, worked honestly at grassroots level for seven decades, came into contact with many leading personalities in politics and, to his great consternation, found that they were sincere only to their self-interests and not to the people who returned them to power in elections. Bruised and mauled, Reshi Dev penned down at the age of 92 his reminiscences in exile. K.N. Pandit has translated this diary from Urdu into English adding informative annotations and appendices.
