The book depicts the incidents that shaped the life of a man who likes to call himself an ordinary man although he’s anything but. This book is as much about the life of S.P. Rawal, a man who went from a life of affluence to becoming a pauper, as it is about how India underwent changes in societal relationships, value systems and its lifestyle. Beginning with the turmoil of Partition, the book treads through all the major incidents witnessed by India and its people, from the 1940s to the present. Born in the lap of luxury, S.P. Rawal’s childhood was spent in Pakistan. His family’s fortunes vanished in the aftermath of the Partition and they had to live in a refugee camp. His family’s dire financial situation made him become a consummate salesman even as a child. Lady luck smiled and he got a job in an MNC and had an exponential rise thereafter. After retirement, his quest for learning and hard work made him turn towards the financial services sector and now he is the Chairman of a well-known arbitrage company. Much like the stock market, his life too has had its share of uncertainty and volatility as well as rewards and gains. This fascinating story gives an inspiring account of how S.P. Rawal overcame the myriad adversities life threw at him. This is the story of a man who created an extraordinary legacy.
