ABOUT THE BOOK :

All prime ministers deliver speeches. What makes Dr. Manmohan Singh's speeches exquisite is that they bear the imprint of true statesmanship, vast knowledge and above all the rare patriotic fervour of a visionary leader.

This book offers a glimpse.

These 'selections' begin with : "There comes an occasion, though rarely, in the life of a nation, when it can be said that the time has come to make history. We are today at the threshold of such an era... Our political system and leadership must show sagacity, wisdom and foresight so that we are able to make the best of this moment and make India a truly great nation, an India where there are no barriers between the government and the people."

Such are the exhortations that really goad you, on and on...
