Civil service has its uncertainties no less than the uncertainties of cricket. The uncertainty is not only about the length of time a civil servant will be in a post. There is also uncertainty about the place. What is it then to be a wife of a civil servant who even though enjoying the security of a career, does not enjoy any security of tenure? In this book, ""Reflections: Experiences of a Bureaucrat's Wife"", Gita Vittal gives a glimpse of her interesting life as a four decades old wife of an Indian civil servant. She traces her transformation from a college student to a memsahib. She takes the reader through her trials and tribulations. Through her easy-to-read, witty, absorbing and captivating writing, the reader lives all her excitement, struggles, challenges, apprehensions and all the ups and the downs of her life. Gita Vittal, however, has much more to her personality than being a bureaucrat's wife. She holds degrees in Journalism, Management and Sociology. She has also pursued freelance journalism and social work. The book also reflects these aspects of her life. These 'reflections' brings the reader face-to-face with her undying, child-like spirit and her zeal for life. Each and all will enjoy browsing through these reflections.
