Description

On November 26, 2008 the author and his wife were taken hostage by terrorists in a hotel in Mumbai. Over the next few days, they faced the possibility of death by the terrorists%u2019 bullets or by fire. They were rescued a few days later but, as the author put it, "he thought of dying on the morrow helps wonderfully to concentrate your mind on things that you have left undone and the little time that you may have left in the world.After their successful rescue, he was urged by his family and friends to write about their experiences. And that is where this book begins. It ranges over a wide spectrum of personalities and issues- from Obama's meteoric rise to the musings of Mandela, from Pakistan's imminent collapse to new ideas for Afghanistan, from heart disease to caregivers, from relationship with children to sex. In short a delightful read.
