Journey of an Explorer
At the very outset, the author clarifies that this is not a translation of his memoirs, published in Urdu as Yaadon Ke Dareechay [Doorways to Memories]. Rather, this is a compendium of incidents and people that could not make it into the earlier book. Journey... begins with childhood reminiscences of Abdullahpur in Haryana, India, and then — aptly enough — goes around the world to North America, Scandinavia, the Middle East and returns home to Pakistan to end on the discovery of oil in Badin, Sindh.
