His description of the jungles of India with their sights and sounds bring them to life for the reader. The details of the city of Hyderabad were a little in excess for one not familiar with the city, but the wonderful people who mentored and shaped his character are worth every word written about them.
Mirza Baigs' years spent as a manager in the tea plantations again bring out his love for nature and the outdoors, but the main thing that stands out is his honesty, loyalty, strong moral character and uncompromising principles. This, unfortunately, is a rarity in today's corporate world. He retains these traits even when he starts his own business of training leaders and is today one of the foremost trainers in the world. This section is the longest and most interesting part of the book.
From being born a muslim to learning, understanding and then teaching the basis of Islam forms the last portion of this wonderful auotbiography of a great outdoorsman, sportsman, nature lover, leader and teacher.
Yawar is jovial, talented and a generous person who calls a spade a spade and stands up for what he firmly believes. I have been President of the Rotary club of the Nilgiris and we Rotarians accord immense weight age to the 4 way test which embodies truth, fairness to all concerned , building good will and better friendship and which is beneficial to all concerned. Yawar fully complies with this requirement even though he is not a Rotarian.His life is indeed a gift to the world.
His book ” It’s My Life”, made interesting reading as Lorraine and I could relate to all the incidents of life on the Estate at Valparai. We were also able to vividly recall most of the other incidents in the book ; We remember Yawar and Samina spending time with us and Yawar narrating his tales in his own humorous way.
If you believe that example is more effective than mere words, then this book is sure to excite you. Yawar’s words and examples guide many youngsters to aim high and never give up His drive, determination and resourcefulness acts like a beacon of light directing people of all ages all over the worlds to achieve what others thought was impossible..
All Kudos to Yawar and his ability to record remember and recall minor to major incidents of his life and how it has impacted the lives of many.
