What makes this book unique, informative and interesting

  • It is a unique orientation for the readers to know how life was in the pre-independent, colonial, British India during the global depression times; and about its rich, colorful, cultural customs, festivals and traditions.

  • It is also the chronicle of a typical migrant who contributed much to enrich the country he has chosen as his domicile, thus presenting a bold case on the political dialog scene and the extreme viewpoints in our ongoing presidential debates.
