Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New Delhi Bloomsbury India 2019Description: 227 p.: col. ill. Includes appendix.ISBN: 9789389449280.Subject(s): Biography | R.N. Kao | Rameshwar Nath KaoDDC classification: 940.548642 Summary: Somewhere deep in the archives of the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) in the heart of New Delhi lies a set of papers that researchers and historians interested in recording the history of Indian intelligence, would love to get their hands on. Alas, those documents-transcripts of tape-recorded conversations with RN Kao, the legendary spy chief-are not going to be available until 2025, according to instructions left by him, months before he passed away in 2002. So until those tapes and papers are made public, any biography of Rameshwar Nath Kao or 'Ramji' to friends, colleagues and family would have to depend on personal memories of a vast array of individuals who knew him in different capacities and their interpretation of his personality and contribution. https://www.bloomsbury.com/in/rn-kao-9789389449280/
