An autobiography of childhood in the Tamil country, secular employment, and Christian institutional leadership. ‘An earnest attempt to recollect and record important events and punctuated with interesting anecdotes, the book is no mere autobiography. It is also a social history of the times under the British colonial rule and particularly during the period of World War II. Above all it is a testimony to the fact that ?those whom He calleth, he also provideth’. That was what Bishop Newbigin said to me when I pointed out that I had no technical qualification for the job of heading a technical institute offered to me? (from the author’s preface).
