As a young voter who had cast his vote in Bombay North in 1962 and got to know Indian politics, I can say with pride that V.K. Krishna Menon is an outstanding leader, probably next to Nehru.

As a great orator and a dazzling diplomat nonpareil, he would have ensured India followed a different path.
