As the UN's new man in Sudan, he could have been considered ill-equipped to balance the North/South peace process as the tragedy in Darfur gathered pace but his energy and commitment carried him through what could be considered the darkest period of recent world politics.
The book is easy to read and intersperses the crisis in Sudan with incidents from Dr Kapila's past, showing how they contributed to his steadfast commitment that he must act even if it cost him his post and career.
There are lessons to be learnt here for the international community, but on this insight, it is to be feared that international political wrangling will always trump saving lives.
Well done for having the courage to write it Mukesh, and more than well done for bringing this tide of evil to the attention of the world.
Project Coordinator at Italians for Darfur
