Mr. Attar Chand is writer with scientific outlook and much of his present volume is couched in academic pursuit. He has flashed of creative writing which are impressive and his analysis of Venkataraman s humanistic outlook-his love for the poor-is particularly remarkable. Mr. Attar Chand s study of Venkataraman is well documented and researched and is of value to all in India and abroad. The evolution of Venkataraman s socio-economic, cultural, artistic and political ideas is traced and followed cogently with refernce to the various influences to which he was subject.
