This is the story of my early education in an Indian orphanage for the blind, and, by extension, perhaps the story of the education of blind children elsewhere. But it is also a continuation of two earlier books--'Daddyji, ' a biographical portrait of my father, and 'Mamaji, ' a biographical portrait of my mother--since the three volumes are all part of a series I am writing about my family and myself.
