Book Review by American Magazine

Kant, in this debut memoir, recounts a successful life after defying the expectations of his small village in India. The author was born in Bathinda, a village with a strong sense of tradition and all the orthodoxy that entails…Kant not only had to overcome the prohibitive presumptions of his community (and even members of his own family), but also his own lack of confidence, to explore beyond Bathinda. The author finally overcame the stigma attached to leaving home in order to find work; he moved to Delhi and later pursued a career in the United States…Over the course of this memoir, the author writes with informal clarity, affecting a simple, anecdotal register. His life story is an inspiring one of emotional fortitude and perseverance, and readers won’t be able to help but admire his considerable accomplishments…one that they will surely enjoy.

My name is Lakshmi Kant. I am a Certified Public Accountant with more than twenty years of professional experience. I graduated from the D.A.V. College Bathinda (a small town in the state of Punjab, India). I then became member of the Institute of Company Secretaries of India, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India and finally the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. I currently live in Plainsboro, New Jersey with my wife and two daughters. I work as Managing Director at a large consulting firm in New York and spend free time writing about my life experiences and playing piano. My favorite spot on the earth is my living room, where I play duets with my youngest daughter. She on the violin me at the piano. My family and I feel very proud to present to you, 'A Nightmare on December 23rd.' I thank my daughter, Darisi Garg to create and maintain this website.
