This book is memoirs of the author’s recollections of persons, places and pursuits. The author has described his recollections with reference to places, incidences, events and work experiences. It also notes his ideas and suggestions on various urban issues. The author has realized that while he might indeed have been neglected individually and professionally, most of his suggestions and solutions for the urban problems and issues in India were in fact slowly getting accepted – albeit in the name of some others – and he had indeed succeeded modestly in his crusade to bring about sanity in the approach to urban issues and their solutions. He has indeed been proved a visionary whose visionary approaches to urban issues were accepted even though he did not get any credit for it. The book contains the essence of his work in all his assignments so far, in the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research, Delhi Development Authority, Asansol Planning Organization, New Capital project of Gujarat, Housing & Urban Development Corporation of India, Spencer & Company, Makers Development Services, the World Bank and many important national and state level committees. He helped a number of friends as well as young, budding Architects & Planners in not only getting them selected for good jobs in those organizations and elsewhere - many a times by bending the rules - but also ensured their professional progress and prosperity. This is his seventh book, the earlier ones being, in chronological order, 1. The building of Gandhinagar: The new Capital of Gujarat, 2. Urban Planning & Development: An Indian Perspective 3. Urban Growth Strategies: Mumbai Lessons, 4. Hands on Guide to Housing & Urban planning, 5. Planning of new capital cities and 6. What Ails India.
