He suffered through the famine of 1942 and the devastating communal riots; witnessed the birth of a nation in 1947 amidst great social calamity; lived through the ensuing moral and political bankruptcy of the Indian intelligentsia and experienced first-hand the powerful reaches of a politicized and corrupted bureaucracy.
