Lost at 15, Found at 50 by Ashwini Devare
In this autobiography, Ashwini Devare gives an interesting view to various political developments and upheavals. Before she was 15, she has lived in various parts of US, Myanmar, Korea and Switzerland
and also dabbled and dealt with historical events – from being born at the height of Cold War, USA mired in the Vietnam War, to Sikkim in the midst of a pro-democracy movement that would overthrow
the monarchy, the assassination of Indian Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri in Tashkent, India during turbulent times, and South Korea, where student demonstrations convulsed the country. Ashwini gives an interesting account of her life as an observer of historical political events and a former journalist in this book.
