NEW DELHI, Aug. 21, 2023 (TBINN)

Often termed elitist and anglicised by his critics, bureaucrat-turned-politician Mani Shankar Aiyar says he is glad to be a Macaulay ki aulad, but is also a very proud Indian and recounts in his memoir his student days in Cambridge where he gave himself a sobriquet – “a coconut Indian”.

The irrepressible Congress’ leader, whose autobiography “Memoirs of a Maverick — The First Fifty Years (1941-1991)” has hit the stands, said he was very glad to state that he “broke that coconut” over the next 50 to 60 years.

Mani Shankar also used a cricketing analogy to describe his current state in politics. “I did have a good innings but now I have been sent back to the pavilion. I am all padded up though and ready to bat if I am called in to bat,” Mani Shankar Aiyar told in an exclusive interview.
