Within a few weeks after retiring from the cabinet, Jayakumar was seen hawking his book, “Diplomacy”. Presumably he wrote it during his time in office.
The president has written one book while in office (proceeds to charity) and has publicised that another will be out in September (he leaves office on 31 August, unless he stands again).
One wonders if their official duties leave them so much free time that they can write books while in office? I tot, based on the experiences of a friend, mega-salaries come with little personal free time time. Or maybe $2-4m a yr is “peanuts”, so very little to do on the job?
