ABSTRACT I am a man who has been lost for the most part of his life and hardly someone who deserves to have a book written about him. I am the boy you write off because you are supposed to. I had written myself off when I was in my teens and was devoid of hope, dreams and direction. My early failures are not without reason. I have given the minimal amount of effort everywhere I have gone. I am not proud of that fact. I have copied in examinations, forged certificates, never listened to my parents and manipulated systems. I still remember begging Mr. Pandit, Sir, I request you to clear me. I need only 15 marks to pass. I promise you I won t be involved in theory in my life. One needs guts to do what I did and yet ask the professor to let him go. I ve had my share of twists and turns.

This book is not about my failures or my confused childhood. It is about that persona that was conceived at the gates of Premiere by Rohan. It is about the man who was moulded by Divya, John and Vivek s friendship and by Prof. Mukherji s mentorship. It is the journey of a character who deserved nothing, but got everything. All through the journey I experienced ups and downs. I experienced the joy of gaining new friends and the loss of people who cared for me and held me close. I saw concrete foundations where I experienced safety reduced to ruins, and the joy in making dreams out of rubble. I ve been to places that I never thought I would reach. I ve had the honour of standing next to people who were better than me in every way. This book is about my journey as Dada ..
