Masterji: A Sansi Saga

I was born and brought up in a village, Narangwal Kalan, in the rural area in the district of Ludhiana in Punjab. I completed my graduation in Science from a college in my village and a degree in Bachelor of Education from Chandigarh. Later on while I was working I also studied French and hold a Diploma for the same.

Before I completed my higher secondary school education, an American family, McCords came to stay in our neighbourhood, across the street where I lived. I gradually got friendly with them. Mrs Susan McCord had plenty of free time during the day and she would regularly visit us. I would often translate the conversations from English to Punjabi especially when she spoke to my illiterate mother. Susan was impressed by the simple life style of my father and steadily became curious to peep into his life. She expressed to me her inquisitiveness to explore the possibility for it. That was the origin of this eventful story of Masterji.

Susan and her family finally moved out from India but we remained in touch with each other over the years. Her project was on to explore the life of my father. It started taking shape when we set the tape recorder rolling for recording the mesmerising mysterious life of my father, something that was never known to us.

Even though the medium of in structionin my higher secondary school and college was English, yet Susan played an immense role for developing my efficiency in English. I got a job in an International airline which offered me vast opportunities to travel worldwide. I experienced the life style of the people in various countries. .

This project took several years to complete because of the in-depth research that was done to explore the subjects to their full lucidity. This is one of the best and most unique remembrances of my life.
