Chemage: Learn + Earn + Return, 1943-2018
Sh. Ghulam Abbas Cyclewala

In his autobiography, the author traces not only his personal life, but also the evolution of the chemical industry in Pakistan. Graduating with a degree in chemical engineering in 1968, he mentions introducing chemicals and processing practices that led to the development of everyday objects now found in almost every home in the country. From working in Libya in the 1970s, to moving to Russia and then coming back home, this is an entertaining account of a life well lived.
