Rekindling from the Forgotten is a collection of Op-Eds and Columns published by me during last couple of years for numerous newspapers and magazines.
Warm reception and requests to turn this into a book was overwhelming and i could see how it can be beneficial for the posterity. The tone is solemn, bitter, euphoric, inquisitive, informative, malicious and melancholic and yet never wavers from the search for truth.
For all its worth, my wanderings and ramblings are for the world to castigate, discard, cherish or internalize. All i am doing is, rekindling the history from the forgotten.
