The present book is an outcome of the comments made by the sitting President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee, in the chapters on Emergency in his recently published book - The Dramatic Decades - Indira Gandhi Years. To set the record right; an earnest effort has been made to highlight in the book the atrocities committed on the innocent citizens, who had been detained under MISA and other offences during the dark days of Emergency by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to perpetuate herself in power by fair or foul means. The generation which was born after 1975 has every right to know the real history of the Emergency days. The book contains 17 chapters and ten annexures. Every chapter and annexure is quite informative and thought provoking.
