Discovery of Truth and Nothing But Truth: Memoirs of a Civil Servant’ is not an autobiography in the conventional sense. It is primarily an issue based work. It is about a few facets in the life and career of a sensitive author spanning over 50 years (1964-2014). These have been woven around issues of land to the tiller, creation of a literate and learning society, elimination of indebtedness and bondage, custodial and juvenile justice, poverty and economic backwardness of KBK region in South Odisha, industrial sickness, migration, a few dimensions of human rights and social justice with truth as the pole star. It is also about the trials, tribulations and vicissitudes in the life of an honest and upright civil servant who placed service to humanity above self, did not mince towards when it came to stand up and revolt against tyranny, injustice and oppression and always adopted and unconventional and unorthodox approach to deal with genuine issues of human concern with total empathy and sensitivity to offer solace and relief to those who needed them most.
