‘K N Malik believes in high standard of professionalism and warm friendships. He has come out with his much-awaited account that begins with the Partition and the India story that has been unfolding ever since. A gentle humour, at times sardonic, runs along his readable narrative.’

and The Tribune. Media advisor to Prime Minister of India, Ambassador, and Member of Parliamen
An Autobiography offers an account of the remarkable life of one of the most daring journalists of his time—K N Malik. His has been a life informed by strong friendships, unforgettable experiences, and a fearless dedication to finding and publishing facts even when threatened by people in power.
No one was exempt from the author’s fierce drive to uncover the truth—not media tycoons, not the doyens of Indian aviation, not even presidents or prime ministers. This is his story in his own words, depicting an unpredictable yet wonderful life spread over nine decades, beginning from his childhood spent in the town of Sheikhupura (now in Pakistan), the days of his youth spent helping the refugees during the Partition, to his emergence as an eminent journalist while working at The Times of India, and his eventual migration to London.
