M.V. Kamath, with four decades of rich and varied experiences, has traveled the world with an eye for eole and a nose for news. He has met an amazingly wide range of characters from all walks of life from royalty to Nobel laureates, from film and theatre ersonalities to statesmen and oliticians. His meetings have resulted in this collection of anecdotes some sad, some outright funny, and some simly staid. His writing in no way borders on gossi, but rather delves into the humanity of each subject.

Journalism oened u vast avenues for M.V. Kamath. He lived a life of leasant sunrises, wondering what the next day held for him. The short ieces in this book are a minute collection of material that would robably fill u 10 such books. However, this collection owerfully conveys his experiences of ain and joy that run through all his encounter. He views both these universal experiences as ehemeral. This fleeting asect of life binds each anecdote to the other, thus elevating storytelling to a fine art, that doesnt sound forced or acquired, and comes straight from the heart.
