Genral Rao Farman Ali was one of the brightest and most intellect officers of Pakistan Army. Fate brought him to Dhaka as Artillery Brigade Commander and but turned him as the Political Adviser of the Governor East Pakistan.He served in that capacity in the most turmoil period of Pakistan history.The book is the true mirror of what he saw-what he thought should be-and and what he thought would not be.
He was not involved in the dialogue between Yahya-Mujib-Bhutto to decide the fate of the country.But he expressed his sense what that dialogue can take the country to.He saw the total inefficiency of the Pakistani top Military braces including the influential political leaders who failed to influence the destiny of the 22 years old country.
Pakistan was born on the basis of majority muslim population in the west and east of pre-partitioned India.The failure of understanding the depth of the situation and wrong appreciation-as Pakistani Military always did since it's emancipation failed a nation that never could reach to a stand point for unreality.India -as it is popularly known Hindustan is well accepted by Pakistan while themselves called as Pak-Stan ( a land of pure) was not acceptable to some. Half of Pakistan never heard the word democracy while eastern part was dying for it.The only reason east could not get a chance of emancipation due to the failure and betrayal of it's own leaders.
Sheikh Mujibur Rahman came out as the uncontested leader of the east out of No voting-as all other east pakistani political parties boycotted it.Yahya Khan and Bhutto could not have patience to try Mujib as the PM -.Instead they tried his integrity which he passed by not declaring UDI and accepting the arrest.The Yahya did not understand the cunning Bhutto nor did any top Military officials.They proved to be the worst political and military leaders in known history of the region.
