This book is all about THEIR memories stretching over Millenniums and Miles, to the 1950s and then to 1973 when it acquired a more contemporary flavour.
K.K. Sasikumar was born on 10th of October 1948 in Avinissery, a village in Thrissur District, Kerala. He was born to Sri. Kalloor Kumaran Nambudiripad, a school teacher and Smt. Sreedevi Antharjanam, a home maker. He had his schoolings in nearby local schools. Having been born in a traditional Mantravadi (Sorcery) family, he was initiated to the family tradition and not only learnt but practiced Manthravadam for a very short period. However, he did not feel any inclination to continue in this line and came out of it completely.
Sasikumar took his Engineering Degree from NIT Warangal, Andhra Pradesh (presently Telangana). It was there he met his soulmate and future wife, Valsa who was also pursuing her Degree in Electrical Engineering in the same institute. Valsa being a Catholic from an endogamous sect and Sasi being from another endogamous community called Namboothiri, it was almost impossible for them to sail the boat of life without a hurricane. In spite of all hurdles, they got married in 1973.
After working in various places like Mumbai, Karnataka, Nigeria and Andhra Pradesh, they now live in Sharjah, UAE.
This is the first formal book from Sasikumar. His other areas of interest are Genetics, Astro Physics, Evolutionary History and Music.
