The Same Globe For All

“It gave me valuable insights into the living situation and daily life on the sub-continent as one scarcely finds in other books and script. Your experiences in two very different countries in which you feel at home showed me that the peaceful co-existence of different cultures, religions and nations can succeed”.

Johannes Rau, German Federal President in a letter to the author after reading the book in German version.

“This book is a personalized narrative dealing with encounters in different countries, encounters with ideologies, cultural nuances, vested interests, overt and covert agenda, poverty and affluence, action and inaction. What we get in the book is an illuminating interlace of personal experiences, commentary on socio-political development, inter-cultural comparisons and reflections”,

Dr. C. Thomas Abraham
