Daulat Singh Panwar has led an interesting life – from joining the Indian Navy, to becoming the first literate person in his family and handling a job overseas in Middle East countries, from a shy glossophobic, to a charismatic oilfields skills instructor, a manager and a consultant.Daulat transcends child marriage, and later, manages in getting his son married off in an intercaste marriage much against his mother’s wishes. He has, in short, seen it all. He finds humour in despair. In this delightful memoir, Daulat Singh writes in a very tongue-in-cheek style, chronicling episodes from his life with fond reminiscence and candour. This is a beautiful walk down the memory lane, down a path that very few voices tell tales from.
