That impels him know more about his history if there was one of a cindered family tree. His father , somewhere on the other side of the border, Pakistan, didn't arouse his interest. Never never never. The two mothers do. Abba, father,was instructed by ma with steely resolve, never ever to see the boy. He attemped to it would have been abnormal if he hadn't. He was humiliated. Like those countless treaties between India and Pakistan- ineffectual. Maybe abba is dead now, may be he's lech with a merry- go- round of a family and mistresses in Lahore,Karachi, Islamabad, Whereverabad, Who cares.'

Bravely personal with quantum leaps into the imagination, Two Mothers and Other Stories by film Critic, scriptwriter, playwright and director, Khalid Mohamed, explores a variety of themes ranging from familia bonds, the lingering indian royalty, and media stratagems to Mumbai's fast- vanishing Zorostrian irani cafe's and the bold new world of website sexual relationships.

Siddhartha
Add To Bookshelf
Siddhartha
by Hermann Hesse
Hermann Hesse's classic novel Siddhartha is an inspiring book that has influenced generations of readers, writers, and thinkers. Though set in a place and time far removed from the Germany of 1922, when it was written, the novel is infused with the sensibilities of Hesse's tme, synthesizing disparate philosophies-Eastern religions, Jungian archetypes, Western individualism-into a unique vision of life as expressed through one man's search for meaning. It is the story of the quest of Siddhartha, a wealthy Indian Brahmin who casts off a life of privilege to seek spiritual fulfillment and wisdom. On his journey, Siddhartha encounters wandering ascetics, Buddhist monks, and successful merchants, as well as a courtesan named Kamala and a simple ferryman who has attained enlightenment. Traveling among these people and experiencing life's vital passages-love, work, friendship, and fatherhood-Siddhartha discovers that true knowledge is guided from within.
