The essays in this third book of the author, are different from the first two books of collection of essays i.e. Turbulence and Tranquility and Where Angels Fear to Tread, as they had autobiographical elements in the social and political context of the line.
The present volume provides the author’s reflections and reminiscences on a variety of subjects and is divided in four parts: Reflections, Impressions, Reminiscences, and Glimpses of the Past. For instance Jalil speaks about his mother and the reader not only gets an impression of his deep love and affection for his mother but also of her interests and activities and the social milieu in which she lived. He tracks back down the memory lane of sixty years or so and comes up with a vivid account of his elders sitting in the morning sun discussing the weather and crop prospects.
One gets the description of the rural roads, hats, and common people’s curiosity and of their genuine hospitality. The author remembers with reverence his teachers in college and university, who also occupied high government positions. He delves into the past and refreshes the readers’ minds about some historical personages e.g. Alexander and Hitler providing interesting accounts of the last days of their lives. For those ho have a special fascination for the Great Mughals, he gives the tale of the two last surviving Mughal princesses. He recounts the wonderful story of an eminent Bengalee, Tamizuddin Khan, ho stood courageously and firmly for principles and parliamentary democracy against all odds thus becoming a part of the unfolding constitutional history of the Indian sub-continent.
The book informs as well as entertains the readers. It enkindles the interests in their mind, particularly of the younger generations, for further reading and research in history.

Azizul Jalil born in Calcutta, studied at the Dhaka and London Universities in the fifties. He joined the Civil Service of Pakistan in 1958 and served in various positions. During this period, he studied at Oxford University in England and at Williams College in USA. After a brief period as an Economic Counselor at the Pakistan Embassy in Brussels, he joined the World Bank in Washington in 1971, where he worked till 1990. He served as the World Bank Resident Representative in Zambia in 1977-80. After his retirement, he continues to live in Washington, regularly visiting Bangladesh and other countries and places of interest. He contributes articles to Dhaka newspapers and magazines.
