M.O. Mathai (Mundappallil Oommen Mathai)(1909–28 August 1981. He became the Private Secretary to India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. He is usually famed for his debatable memoirs in Reminiscences of the Nehru Age (1978) and My Days with Nehru (1979).
This book written by M.O.Mathai, who had served as Nehru’s unique assistant (Personal Assistant – PA) for more than a decade from 1946 & 1959, gives the reader a few first-hand facts on several anecdotes, information & past references.
It is an interesting book wherein Mathai easily takes the reader again in time and narrates his encounters & studies with distinct leaders in a totally blunt & unforgiving fashion. Neatly divided into isolated chapters, he speaks out his mind (private reviews at the side of anecdotes & a few facts) approximately every chief in step with the chapter.
