Dreams From My Father
by Barack Obama
Nine years before the Senate campaign that made him one of the most influential and compelling voices in American politics, Barack Obama published this lyrical, unsentimental, and powerfully affecting memoir, which became a #1 New York Times bestseller. Dreams from My Father tells the story of Obama?s struggle to understand the forces that shaped him as the son of a black African father and white American mother?a struggle that takes him from the American heartland to the ancestral home of his great-aunt in the tiny African village of Alego.

Obama opens his story in New York, where he hears that his father?a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man?has died in a car accident. The news triggers a chain of memories as Barack retraces his family?s unusual history: the migration of his mother?s family from small-town Kansas to the Hawaiian islands; the love that develops between his mother and a promising young Kenyan student, a love nurtured by youthful innocence and the integrationist spirit of the early sixties; his father?s departure from Hawaii when Barack was two, as the realities of race and power reassert themselves; and Barack?s own awakening to the fears and doubts that exist not just between the larger black and white worlds but within himself.

Propelled by a desire to understand both the forces that shaped him and his father?s legacy, Barack moves to Chicago to work as a community organizer. There, against the backdrop of tumultuous political and racial conflict, he works to turn back the mounting despair of the inner city. His story becomes one with those of the people he works with as he learns about the value of community, the necessity of healing old wounds, and the possibility of faith in the midst of adversity.

Two Mother and other stories
by Khalid Mohamed
'No right, no wrong. No destiny, no karma, no kismat. It's all there, the tide of circumstances, evensts and results. 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. Unfailingly.
