‘I never wanted to a journalist’ is Jug Suraiya’s trademark tongue-in-the-cheek beginning to this book.  And yet, everything that impacted on his life appeared on the pages of first the youth magazine Junior Statesman, and later, the hoary Times of India. The chapters in this book are told in the same voice as his regular columns. The characters they describe—some well-known to us, some not—will remain immortal in our minds. Suraiya is the first Asian to have won the Grand Prize for Travel Writing awarded by the Pacific Area Travel Association (PATA).

Jug Suraiya Jug Suraiya is a journalist with The Times of India. He began his writing career first with the iconic Junior Statesman. His memories—both humorous and nostalgic—pepper the pages of this unforgettable book by a writer who has been described by Khushwant Singh as ‘India’s Art Buchwald’.
