Jayaprakash Narayan commented through his speeches, statement and writings on Jammu and Kashmir State-more than any other Indian leader. As conscience keeper of India with an independent mind and moral courage, he expressed his views on the developments in the state from pre-independence days to the latest days of his life. He was admired as well as condemned by the people and leaders of the country but never ignored. He was the profoundest influence on the Kashmiri mind, after Gandhi and Nehru and played a major role in reconciliation of Sheikh Abdullah and the people of Kashmir, after decades of estrangement, with the rest of India.
The book is a collection of whatever he said or wrote on the crucial state, from all possible sources-archives, newspapers, personal records. It throws light on how national interest and moral principles can be reconciled and how his personality affected the national policies and events in the state.
