This is the first academic biography of Subimal Dutt, best known as India’s longest serving Foreign Secretary, covering the nearly nine eventful decades of his life. It tells the story of how a Bengali village boy without any connections had one of the most distinguished careers of his generation without ever forgetting his roots. Struggling all his life between professional ambition and deep spirituality, Dutt never transformed into one of those ‘brown Englishmen’ so typical of South Asia’s civil servants, but remained a strictly impartial, straightforward and incorruptible officer of – as he formulated it himself – the ‘vernacular type’.
Intellect and discipline brought him into the Indian Civil Service where he excelled as an outstanding administrator and moved into the field of foreign relations. Working closely with Nehru in his capacity as Commonwealth and later Foreign Secretary for over twelve years, he became one of the most influential advisors of India’s first Prime Minister. His career seemed to come to an end as Secretary to the President and later Vigilance Commissioner, but in 1972 he was appointed India’s first High Commissioner to Bangladesh, building bridges between the country of his birth and the one he had chosen in 1947.
Amit Das Gupta is a senior researcher with the Universität der Bundeswehr, München, Germany. His first book dealt with West Germany’s South Asia Policy in the years between 1949 and 1966. He has published on international relations in the 20th century, with a focus on Germany, European integration and South Asia.
