New Delhi


Manmohan Singh's daughter Daman Singh Sunday said her book traces the journey of the former prime minister and his wife Gursharan Kaur's life from the 1930s to 2004.

Speaking after the release of the book "Strictly Personal", Daman Singh said it talks not just about the two individuals but about the journey of India through Independence.

"The book is not just about two individuals but it also talks about the times of the 1930s. Story of an India that was divided but got freedom... Struggle of a nation to move ahead," she said at the book launch function.

"Something that was done with courage, conviction, and sometimes confusion, the book portrays my parents, their ideas, values, belief -- how these form and how they change," she said.

The book begins in the 1930s and ends in 2004, when Manmohan Singh became India's prime minister. IANS
