Carefree Days: Many Roles, Many Lives

 
Pran Nevile (Author)
Synopsis

In his long and eventful career, Pran Nevile has donned several hats - journalist, researcher, diplomat, Soviet bloc expert, United Nations adviser, and writer. The story of his multifaceted life begins in pre-Partition Lahore and gives us glimpses of imperial New Delhi and journeys through Japan, Poland, Yugoslavia, Switzerland, the Soviet Union and the US as it follows his diplomatic postings. He turns author with an ode to the city of his birth, while his interest in performing arts leads him to spend years researching in the libraries of England and the US to produce a sumptuously illustrated masterpiece, followed by a number of books on art. Finally, his love for music drives him to celebrate the work of eminent singers, composers and poet-lyricists of yesteryear. A pilgrimage to the past, Carefree Days is an inspiring account of a life well lived - of several lifetimes lived in one.
