THE TURBULENT YEARS : 1980-1996
Pranab Mukherjee was witness to (and, sometimes, a participant in) the
momentous events of the 1980s and the 1990s, a period that was

insider, he sheds new light on every major political occurrence of the
time—from Rajiv Gandhi’s ascendance as India’s Prime Minister to the
emergence of P.V. Narasimha Rao as the leader of a nation; from
Operation Blue Star to the Babri Masjid fiasco.
