November 6, 2010, gave me the biggest shock of my life… My wife, June, gasped and breathed her last lying in my lap. June, who was with me for 43 years, was gone. 1943 to 2018: While the world grew smaller with technology and globalisation, torn apart by wars, humanity sought to conquer other planets, and India’s identity transformed, this man experienced it all, as he made his personal trysts with destiny. The world changes, people forget. But his unending love made him pick up the pen and immortalise the memories of his journey and of that happening around him. In here, there are accounts of everyday ordinary existence with extraordinary meaning. It is your story and my story. It speaks of happiness and sorrow, achievement and failure, laughter and tears, war and peace, victory and defeat, discovery and destruction. It is the story of a life well lived, love without boundaries, and inevitable death.
