Katihar to Kennedy – the phrase might suggest grandiose intent, but this bookis really just about the lessons I learned – from failures as well as from moments of triumph. Lessons I learned while engaged most intimately with harsh socio-economic realities, and contrasts I experienced, moving between cities, institutions, and job roles. It is also a book of honest confrontation, of my own ego and pride.
