About the Book


 

What Not Words is a selection of impressions - from life in the 1950s in India, till the year 2000, then travel through the Indian diaspora. These are tales of everyday life, stories both surreal and lived, including the author's own three decades of diplomatic reminisces outside the homeland. Retrospection reveals coming to terms with unanswered questions. The characters struggle with feelings of hope and desolation, to weave a brocade of thoughts, that depict the transience of Life itself.
