Description

History books relate how in 1947 India gained independence from Britain and was partitioned into two countries resulting in a most terrible human tragedy. But this is not a history book - it is a fascinating personal testimony to the impact of the events on the author and his family members. This may tell us how the author lost his roots, but he also takes us on a quest to rediscover those roots. Accompany him through his memories to his childhood in the India of the 1930s when village life was primitive. Learn from the wonderful panorama he shows us of India's culture and history. Next, he shares with us the years of hard work as he pursued his ambition to be a doctor. His career brought him to Britain in 1959 where he established new roots, finally becoming a senior consultant in a UK hospital. This is a wonderful memoir full of interesting stories of the distant and not so distant past, both personal and universal.
