Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Nov 21, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 256 pages

This book reflects my continued interest in the Volunteering and Community services. I was a member on the Board of the Harbor foundation for the retarded; The Rotary Clubs of the cities I resided in, The Battered Womans Aid group, and The Art Center. I was also keenly involved in and organized the 50th birthday of the city of Palos Verdes, and 10th anniversary of the formation of the city of Ranch Palos Verdes. From that I catapulted to Politics and was in the inner circle of the Republican followed by Democratic Party. The chapters like the Politics of Convenience Upset the Balance of Power; the Pendulum Theory; and the Cyclical Theory are the products of what the real situations were.

About the author (2011)

Born in India 85 years ago. The British dished out my birthplace to Pakistan as a parting gift. Till then sun never used to set on the British Empire but these days it hardly rises there. I was impressed with the Boston Tea Party episode, and was ashamed that my countrymen did not unite for their freedom. In 1965 I applied for migration and received approval under preference III, immediately, may be because I had an Engineering background. My credentials included First B.Sc. from an American Campus in Lahore, Second from University of London, in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, in 1948 (a 56 month course in 18 1⁄2 months, with scholarships.) We received the Diplomas from the Queen Mother and her uncle at the Royal Albert Hall; Sir Thomas Beecham conducted the Orchestra. Only 26 were successful, and I had the honor of a dancing swirl with shy Princess Elizabeth (the present Queen of England,) because Princess Margaret quickly tapped my shoulder and whisked me away.

I worked on several billion-dollar projects and in Indonesia, danced with the sister of President Suharto. I also decided to work under Mahatma Gandhi, as a Satyagrahi a non-violent group. Prayers up at 4 am daily before the drill and a march followed us by the Mahatma. I also dedicated my free hours to social work for the American and British woman’s organizations. I was also appointed as a Director on the Board of Breach Candy Hospital, on behalf of Shell Oil Refineries where I was in the top management. American Counsel General, the British Deputy High Commissioner, the Swedish Ambassador were also on the Board. We used to organize Pantomimes for raising funds. On 15th of April 1977, when I migrated to this country, I received

My Green Card the J.F.K Airport. It proofs the virtue of do-gooders. I was very much into politics in USA, and was keenly associated with both the Republicans and Democrats in that order.
