This biography of Harsh VardhanShringla, one of India’s most distinguished diplomats, and a former Foreign Secretary, describes his life and his rise to the highest position in the elite Indian Foreign Service by dint of his perseverance, determination, hard work, skill, and ability. His life and work are strongly anchored in his heritage, his culture, and his values. The two intertwined facets of Harsh Shringla—the person and the diplomat—are captured in this biography. Engaging anecdotes from his childhood and youth reveal a person who demonstrated leadership qualities and an ability to work hard behind a stoic facade. A pan-India upbringing, and an educational journey through boarding school to one of India’s best colleges, were followed by success in the civil service exam, and a remarkable career in the Indian Foreign Service. This book follows him through that path, looks at his inspiring career, and describes his work and responsibilities, as well as his contributions to India’s foreign policy in the background of India’s growth as a nation. A picture emerges of an extremely dedicated person who has persevered through every challenge, be it personal or professional, has never wavered in his commitment to doing his absolute best, and never faltered in his determination to serve his nation.
