A Home for Gori

Habib Rehman (Author) Kishore Singh (Author)

In a deeply personal memoir, Habib Rehman captures the joy and anguish of loving and saying good-bye to Gori, his canine companion of many years. As a pup smuggled into their home by his wife, Rehman refuses to have anything to do with Gori. Not one to give up, she soon worms her way into his affections. For ten years, they are inseparable, going for walks, embarking upon adventures, sharing a pillow, talking on the phone when he travels out of town...As Gori reaches the end of her life, Rehman tenderly nurses her through her last illness. And when she passes away, he resolves to build a home that overlooks her grave, as a memorial to her. A Home for Gori will remind dog-lovers of the canine companions they have loved, and lost. To the rest, it will tell an extraordinary story of a dog and a human being, and a bond that endures, quite literally, beyond the grave.

About the author

Habib Rehman

Habib Rehman (S.S.H. Rehman) was born, brought up and educated in Hyderabad. He began his career with the Indian army, which he left as a Major to join the hospitality business, and has spent three decades with ITC. Rehman has researched Indian cuisine and re-created it in a modern context, helping generate global awareness of its nuances and variety. ITC-Welcomgroup restaurants, many of which Rehman has helped set up, are considered icons in the world of international cuisine.

In the mid-nineties, his wife unexpectedly brought a pup home and set off a series of events that Rehman could hardly have foreseen. This recounting of the story of that pet, Gori, also includes important milestones of his career, which he capped when he retired recently as director-in-charge of ITC’s hotels, travel and tourism, and food businesses. Rehman continues to be a well-regarded figure in the hospitality industry. He lives in Delhi in his new home, which is a tribute to the architectural legacy of the city, and a memorial to Gori.
