What is the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Curious One – My adventures as a little boy in India?
We all have stories to tell. As we get older, we probably have more stories to tell. In fact, so do I. At age seventy, choosing which stories to include in a memoir was an amazing challenge for me. I crossed many days, traveled on several continents and immigrated to the United States from India. I spent years as an engineer skilled in nuclear submarine design and was able to choose to tell stories about my journey or my accomplishments. but I do not.
I chose to write about my early childhood adventures from age five to age eight in my memoir. In doing so, I took on the challenge of putting words on paper and translating my storytelling skills orally into written pages.
