In the author’s own words this book is about his second innings, post the year 2008. In a no-holds-barred manner, which is characteristic of Shanti Bhushan, the author traces his early life and formative years, his life in court, and deals with some of the famous cases and issues like the Anna Hazare movement, formation of the AAP, Sanjay Dutt’s trial, the story behind the Emergency and several such moments of national significance.
My Second Innings (Published by Rupa, Pages 207, Price Rs 595) is not just a memoir of a highly respected legal voice of the country; it is also the life of a nation told through one of its conscientious citizen.
