by K. K. Tewari
During an active career in the Indian Army, General Tewari encounters seemingly random events leading to the unpredictable outcome of battles. Acquainted with the Mother, Sri Aurobindo and the Ashram, he decides to retire in Pondicherry, to examine his own role in what appeared random. In 1980 he came to live in Auroville, where he started on this autobiographical meditation.
The first part of the book reads as the diary of a soldier. The narrative is detailed, but due to Tewari's aversion to politics the details tend to stand upon themselves, within the realm of soldiering. The second part reflects on the first part and deals with Tewari's self-discovery. All of which is written in a factual, straightforward narrative.
