Khakhi in Dust Storm
Khakhi in Dust Storm: Communal Colours and Political Assasinations (1980-1991) by Amod K Kanth is a detailed journal of the major police-investigations of crimes between 1980 and 1991.
The author, Mr. Amod K Kanth is a highly decorated IPS officer. He is a social worker and has been recognized as a global hero by the US government. The book provides an insight on several national level cases like Operation Bluestar, lndira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi assassination, the riots that followed, the murders of many big political personalities, the transistor bomb attacks of 1985 and many others that terrorized our country during that period. All we know about these cases is through the lens of media and Khakhi in Dust Storm adds up brilliantly to the knowledge.

The book is very informative, providing insider information on these high-profile cases. The narrative is very impressing with the book being written in amazing language. But according to me, it could have been more interesting with a little more excitement. The book is like a diary and it grew monotonous after a time. It was not thrilling, which I expected it to be. Otherwise, if you are into Political reads or informative books, Khakhi in Dust Storm would be a really nice pick. This is the first installment of the Police Diaries series, with more to come.
