Across the Desert Autobiography of an Obscure Indian

Author Name: Sibaprasad Dutta | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

This book contains the story of my life incessantly tormented by misfortunes. Times came when I was acutely hopeless, when my mind went haywire and when I tended to be a fugitive. But I kept on walking along the wooly way braving the rough weather and enduring the harsh conditions that assailed me obstinately. The book relates the direct experiences without lacquer, keeping facts distant from fancy. It will surely be a delightful read for those who can empathize with the author. The narrative is such that a sensitive mind, while reading, must pause and sigh.
