Manthan is proud to host the release of Dr YV Reddy’s autobiography in Telugu, ‘Naa Gnapakalu’
The successful functioning of a democracy requires the efficient functioning of institutions as well as people at all levels of government and other public agencies. Illustrating this aspect, the autobiography offers the life experiences of a seasoned administrator and technocrat, Dr Reddy, who worked at various levels of State, Central and International agencies.
The book offers a vivid and insightful discussion of operational aspects, interpersonal relations between political leadership and administrators and their dynamic interplay in policy management. The author discusses these matters, not from a distance, but from direct personal involvement, which lends an invaluable authenticity, in a lucid way as he progresses in his career from one level to another in the hierarchy. Of particular importance is his involvement in the economic reforms initiated in the 1990’s and later as Governor of the Reserve Bank of India and as Chairman of the Fourteenth Finance Commission.
The multiple dimensions of macroeconomic management, which hitherto remained mysterious matters to most people are narrated in extensive detail in turn enabling the reader to gain a deep understanding of these vital issues to assess the previous reforms and to anticipate future directions.
The book, in Telugu, is at once an autobiography and a history of economic reforms in India during the life time of the author.
