Almost an Ambassador

Rajiv Dogra (Author)
Synopsis His father wanted him to be a village postman, his wife told him to go climb trees. All by himself Doot, the Ambassador of Princetown to Tertia, becomes a legendary figure for wrong reasons. Caught between bewildering world of diplomacy and an unhappy marriage, Doot longs to be a perfect Ambassador. His own ideal is suave and charismatic, having Casanova like luck with women. Alas, despite desperate efforts, this remains a dream for him. Almost an ambassador straddles two worlds, the real and fantastical from Sanguri Gaon in the Caribbean to the desert kingdoms of Tertia and the neighbouring Inertia. The book is a delightfully comic expose’ of the politics of war and coups, of loyalty, love and marital clashes. The entire business of diplomacy is the focus of sometimes glaring, often soft light of humour that Rajiv Dogra casts n Ambassador Doot and his struggles. Almost an Ambassador magically transforms Doot’s world into a tale of diplomatic intrigue and ambition in this book written great warmth and fun. Rajiv Dogra has composed an endearing ode to the ambassadorial life and its lonely splendour.
