Publisher's Synopsis

The author's ancestry and upbringing are a blend of the plural strands of India's races, religions and culture . His education in three countries, reinforced this liberal, cosmopolitan and trusting heritage, which is the backdrop for the unfolding of a diplomat's life in eight different countries.

The book recounts the history of dramatic, exciting, and dangerous events, which the author and his family witnessed and in which they were often active participants.

Vivid portraits of Presidents, Prime Ministers, Emperors, Princes, musicians, dancers, poets, actors, business tycoons give this book a uniquely rare texture. This kaleidoscope of eminent leaders and humbler folk, is enriched and enlivened by a variety of stories and anecdotes which are amusing, poignant and at times inspirational .

The author has tried to portray a life which has had the character of a luxuriant garden, with flowers of a myriad hues, stately trees and the scent of freshly mown grass. The pages of the book illuminate the wonder, the beauty, the joys and the grace of a magnificent garden.

He celebrates his garden by counting the flowers that grow rather than by the leaves that fall.
