“There comes a time for each of us to tell a story.
At 94, Amir Ali recalls the carefree days of his youth at the Doon School and life as the nephew of the famous ornithologist Salim Ali. He recollects picturesque picnics at mystical Kihim, the struggles of his brother Saad, a freedom fighter who spent years in jail and the widespread sympathy Aamir received in London and Bangkok, Montreal and New York, when Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated.
Aamir Ali’s passion for climbing captures the magnetic allure of the Himalaya and the Alps.
This book is a collection of charming memoirs of the east and the west, of families and relatives, of tradition and modernity and the adventures along the journey called life.
