“Defining Moments and Reminiscences” is an Anthology of 32 real life stories; edited and published by Prasanna Mishra, former Secretary to Government of India, and contains reflections, reminiscences and defining moments of 30 Public Servants. The sample of Public Servants has been carefully drawn from different disciplines and includes Engineers, Police Officers, Administrators, a Geologist, a Homeopath, a Health Administrator, a Rice Breeder, Educationists, Forest Officers and a mineral administrator. Some writings in the Anthology are of public servants who are no more. Other contributors have warmly responded to the Editor’s request to be part of the venture. The writings reveal the complexities of situations public servants work in, lessons they draw, the way they handle situations and render public service. To some extent, the Anthology demystifies the role Public Servants perform, mostly away from limelight.

A collection of precious many

I hadn’t read a book like this before. One that everyone should read. It isn’t just one book. It is a precious set of incredible collections. The experiences shared by each author leaves one in awe, but more importantly, inspired. These are accounts of people who acted out of dedication and a sense of responsibility. One that goes way beyond accountability. 10 months ago

Interesting, Thrilling and Captivating!

A wonderful collection of service experiences of various senior government Officials, who have narrated special moments of their lives; the hardship, dilemmas, actions and achievement dedicated to public during their service career. A must-read book for everyone and especially the public servants who may wish to learn from the experiences of their accomplished predecessors.
