Divine Highways

Divine Highways – Abandoning his plan to search for his family roots in India, the author decides instead to set out on a journey across Pakistan and China.

Along the way, he encounters priests, pagans, evangelists, mullahs, mujahideen fighters, Islamic extremists and lamas.

Enduring sickness, earthquakes, car crashes, encounters with big cats, and a bloody riot in Tibet, the author takes the reader on a wild ride across Asia at a time when the world was on the cusp of change.

The Russians were still fighting in Afghanistan; China’s economic boom had barely started, and the Internet was in its infancy.

Inspired by writers like Eric Newby and Bruce Chatwin, the author left a ‘normal’ life to explore distant worlds. He captures the joys and pains of travelling off the beaten track in a work that describes a world that is fast disappearing.

Like the Divine Comedy immediately after a heavy night…”

“A gritty ‘warts and all’ account of a journey that the author was lucky to survive!”
