V.A. Mohta (Author)

Born of a highly respected Maheshwari family in a small town called Akola, the author’s journey begins in 1933. From his early childhood and recollections of the sprawling household, to losing his father and growing up under the guidance of ‘Kakaji’, this book talks about the significant events in his life, focusing mainly on the crossroads and turning points. Charting his steady rise from a District Court lawyer to the Supreme Court, the narrative is filled with anecdotes that delight and intrigue, such as his interactions with Lord Denning, Nehru, Naushad, Mohammad Rafi and Dilip Kumar. A man who rose to the pinnacle of success through grit and determination, challenging every issue he found wrong or unethical, Justice Mohta has stood steadfast on his chosen path despite numerous obstacles, and many of his achievements are legendary. Lucidly written, it is the record of a fascinating journey that melds experience, ideals, honesty and a great firmness of spirit—hallmarks of a life well lived.
