An adventure story with a difference. Join the author on his travels through Asia, Africa, India and elsewhere as he finds a path of sorts on an intense and humourously told search for his meaning to life. From driving a VW Beetle through Africa to a Rolls-Royce limousine in Beverly Hills, from photographic safari guide on foot in Zambia to authoring three linguistic dictionaries, from internal security fiascos in Hong Kong during the Cultural Revolution to the solitude of four years as an itinerant Hindu monk. The author recounts his life of a series of welcome accidents with a thread of revolt and determination to make sense of life which, of course, can only be found beyond the material manifestation, in places of unsuspected simplicity.
