As a journalist with The Indian Express, Sanjay Suri experienced the horror of the 1984 anti-Sikh violence from close quarters. He was witness to a Congress MP demanding the release of partymen arrested for their involvement in the killings; he had a narrow escape from a politically instigated attack; and he confronted several leaders from the party with hard facts and questions, including Kamal Nath and Rajiv Gandhi. He appeared before the commissions of inquiry to give evidence, but much of what he saw and knew got diluted and reduced to legalese.

1984: A Reporter's Diary brings together specific and on-the-ground information based on his experiences and interviews, backed by an examination of records. It reviews the commissions of inquiry and the way they were conducted. At the heart of the narrative is a close, hard look at the question of the Congress's hand in the riots and an attempt to find out why the survivors continue to wait for justice even thirty years later.
