Who would you like to meet – the adventurous four feathers from the prep-school in Shimla or the Eurasian schoolboy and his funny grandmother who detests the dirty manners of the English? There is another option: would you like to catch up with the father who became a schoolboy and attended school again or the small girl who lived on hope that her father would return home from war one day? How about meeting a mischievous boy who always follows his master’s footsteps but never gets the expected results or the destitute lad who gets admitted to a school full of affluent students? All these and many more engaging stories are awaiting you inside this book.
