Book Review : A Child Lost in Flight

Thanks to Sri S for the following review on

As a father with a first hand experience of traveling to India alone with a 22 month old child, I cannot imagine the shock and grief of the author losing his child on a flight. I am truly moved by the author's courage to move on and channel his grief and thoughts through this book.

The book itself is very well written. The composition is to the point and succintly expresses the turmoil the author experienced. I would truly encourage the author to pen and publish more books.

The book also describes the breakdown of the order and structure that is all too common on airlines based off of India. The staff and crew tend to be inexperienced and more often than not poor decision makers. When this subtle incompetence is combined with a ridiculous level of beauracracy within India's public sector organizations, one has to struggle through even basic processes that we in the western world take it for granted. This is very well illustrated in the book when the author is seeking a more dignified and expedited treatment of his situation.
