This book is about how ordinary people like you and me have tried to achieve the extraordinary in a specific period of time, under specific socio-political and economic conditions. It is a book as much about hopes and aspirations as about dreams and dilemmas. It is especially a book full of love, told in so many different ways, which hopefully, will help us reflect more critically upon ourselves and ask ourselves: “What are we doing with our own lives?”
