I have often wondered as to how much inexhaustible variety of knowledge and expertise is packed in Mohan's lean and thin frame.

         The best of all is that his writings bring a lot of knowledge in an easy reading, which is laced with his customary wit and humour, thus making for compulsive reading. Keep writing Mohan, our friend, so that we can keep going!

General Nirmal Chander Vij,

PVSM, UYSM, AVSM

Mohan Kanda delights us even as he educates us in these nuggets of plain good sense, intelligence and, above all, utter honesty. If wisdom can come with a smile or laughter with a lesson, they do so in these editorials. I can only say, 'Keep writing, dear friend'.

Gopalkrishna Gandhi,

formerly Diplomat and Governor of West Bengal.

An amazing and heady mix of reflections and recollections, not only pertaining to the vast variety of postings of Mohan over his career, but also about matters of interest and importance, especially to the youth. Every day something entirely different is thrown up and that keeps interest going.

V.K. Agnihotri,

                                                      former Secretary General, Rajya Sabha
