About the Book

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.


Daulat Singh Panwar was born in July, 1948 in a remote village, Ranata, in Rajasthan.

He has led an adventurous life – from becoming the first literate person in his family, joining the Indian Navy, handling a job overseas in the Oilfields of Middle East countries and transforming from a shy man to a charismatic oilfield skills instructor to becoming an advisor, a manager and a consultant in Health, Safety, and Environment.

 His debut in the literary world was with the publication of  a collection of love poems titled Bouquet for My Beloved in UK in 1998, followed by the publication of  love and spiritual poems titled Samarpan (Hindi) in 2002 and a book of short stories titled Once it Happened in 2015, in India.

He regularly contributes his poems to the International Society of Poets (www.poetry.com) for which he was awarded with several Editors' Choice Awards as well as the International Poet of Merit Awards.


He leads a happy retired life and lives with his mother and his wife in Ajmer.
