The book is a 50 year journey chronicling author’s life from his early years in India to one of the first generation post-war Indian immigrants living in the UK. It was originally written for his own children and grandchildren, who were keen to know how and why he came to live in the UK and how it helped him to become a man he is today. However, the book will be of interest to second and third generation readers of Indian descent who are keen to learn more of their heritage, as well as the general British public as it dwells on the dilemma of a hybrid immigrant in this country. The author comes from an academic background in Political Science, Law and International Relations. Educated both in Kolkata and London, he enjoyed a long and successful career as an academic and civil servant. Since retiring from the Ministry of Defence in 2004, he is best known as a writer and speaker on many cultural and socio economic issues.
