Diary of an Ordinary Man As in EXTRAORDINARY

Book Short Summary:

On March 10, 1993, the author underwent his second open-heart surgery. Diary is a year’s worth of events, thoughts, incentives, and reactions to, that came about in the wake of this highly traumatic experience in one’s life. It records that life not only goes on without bothering to slow down; it rather picks up its speed while expanding on its subjects. Night driving, beach thunder storm, snow winter storms, car repairs; indoctrination, religion, immortality, funny bone; small man vs. corporate man, citizen vs. cop, near-death moments vs. reality, poems; seemingly racist, opinionated, slanted, color red; Europeans and the scourge of the world; times when Pepsi was still another Cola; no subject is a taboo. When gas was $1.30 for a gallon of unleaded super. Entries are dramatized somewhat, yet faithful to the spirit of the events treated. Some could be cut out and pasted on a refrigerator door, such as “Ridicule is an offshoot of arrogance, arrogance of superiority, and superiority of ignorance (page 332).” The anchor event is the author’s car crash that might or might not have led to his aortic valve’s replacement. And it is the event that conceived the Diary, in retrospect notwithstanding. The event that also gave birth to philosophical essays not normally expected to be triggered by. Almost twenty years since, is the history repeating itself? Back then, “rain forest” replaced “jungle,” today “climate change” replaces “global warming.” Whom are we kidding?

Book Short Summary:

In 1946, Baloo Lal Panagariya, then twenty-five years old, arrived in Jaipur to join the editorial staff of the newspaper Lokvani, devoted to exposing the excesses of the British and princely rulers of Rajputana. Though unremarkable in itself, the story behind this event is one of the triumph of human spirit over adversity. Baloo Lal was born in a remote village in Rajasthan, in a family that could not scrape together two full meals a day. He lost his father at five and mother at fourteen. The village lacked even a primary school. Yet, thanks to the wisdom and sacrifice of his mother and his own perseverance, he completed his education, went on to serve with distinction as a civil servant in the newly formed state of Rajasthan and, after retirement, wrote the first definitive book on the history of the freedom movement in Rajasthan. In a very real sense, Baloo Lal's journey from the village of Suwana to the city of Jaipur was a long and arduous one, much more so than that of his own son, decades later from Jaipur to Washington, DC. His success led to more milestones in the next generation, with two of his children being honoured with Padma awards and another with a presidential award. My Father: The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man adds a new dimension to the history of India. It is a reminder that post-independence India was built not just by a handful of leaders working at the top but numerous ordinary citizens who shaped its many contours from below.

Book Short Summary:

Few people can claim careers in two biblical professions: minister and tax collector. In his captivating memoir, Adventures of an Ordinary Man, William Lee Goff shares the triumphs and tragedies of his life as both a Presbyterian minister and an IRS Revenue Agent. Goff writes unpretentiously with deep humanity and subtle humor about his life's adventures: learning to play the cello from a freedom fighter; overcoming his fears to become an amateur stage actor; and traveling in South Africa, Israel, Russia and Denmark. Adventures of an Ordinary Man is a compelling and rewarding read. Although a native of St. Louis, Missouri, William Lee Goff spent his formative years in Los Angeles, California. He earned a bachelor's degree in English from UCLA and then went on to Fuller Theological Seminary where he completed a Doctor of Ministry degree. Goff has had dual careers, one as an ordained Presbyterian minister who served as pastor in churches in California, Colorado, and Idaho. His alter ego had a nearly 25-year career with the IRS. Goff lives with his wife, Tatyana, in Southern California.
