Dr L.M. Singhvi (1931-2007) was an eminent Indian jurist, a distinguished parliamentarian, a celebrated statesman, an able administrator, a brilliant scholar, a prolific writer, and a diplomat par excellence. He was India's second longest-serving high commissioner to the United Kingdom, from 1991 to 1997, and was conferred the Padma Bhushan in 1998. Dr Singhvi was deeply wedded to human service, and wrote on a variety of issues which are relevant in contemporary sociopolitical discourse. This work, alluding to the multifaceted personality of Dr L.M. Singhvi, highlights his scholarly contribution in varied fields of human activities such as law, diplomacy, democracy, and literature. It brings together his unpublished papers and lectures which address topics ranging from human rights, foreign policy issues, Kashmir, centre-state relations, public administration, legal issues, to education, healthcare, civil services, and Indology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[Dr Singhvi] made an immense contribution to his motherland and humanity in various capacities. I know no individual who has touched life at so many points. India's Vibgyor Man truly reflects Dr Singhvi's multifaceted personality. Dr Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Dr Lokendra Malik deserve accolades on this wonderful initiative. * Justice Dalveer Bhandari, Judge, International Court of Justice, The Hague, The Netherlands *
An institution-builder, and the conscience-keeper of the bar, Dr Singhvi held many positions in his life and made a visible contribution to the nation-building process. He introduced the concept of 'Lok Pal' in the country first time... India's Vibgyor Man reflects his outstanding scholarly personality and views. It indeed makes a serious and interesting reading. * Justice A.K. Sikri, Judge, Supreme Court of India *
A veritable bouquet of wisdom from an intellectual giant of contemporary Indian public landscape. Remarkable observations on a rich experience of life. * Salman Khurshid, former Union Minister of External Affairs, Law and Justice, India *
This collection of essays and speeches distils the erudition and contributions of Dr L.M. Singhvi to the worlds of law, politics, social change, and international life. Future generations should benefit from this collection, not merely for its wide wisdom but also imparting many a social meaning to a constitutionally sincere and well-lived life. * Upendra Baxi, Emeritus Professor of Law, University of Warwick, and former Vice-Chancellor, University of Delhi, India *
