About The Many Lives of VK Krishna Menon

A Chequered Brilliance: The Many Lives of V.K. Krishna Menon’ by Jairam Ramesh chronicles one of India’s most controversial and consequential public figures. V.K. Krishna Menon continues to command our attention not just because he was Jawaharlal Nehru’s confidant and soulmate but also for many of his own political and literary accomplishments. A relentless crusader for Indian independence in the UK in the 1930s and 1940s, he was a global star at the United Nations in the 1950s before he was forced to resign as defence minister in the wake of the India-China war of 1962.

The author Jairam Ramesh will be conversation with Ambassador CV Ranganathan and Uday Balakrishnan
