Ranga was an irrepressible boy growing up in Burma, happy in his family circle, when the Japanese bombed Rangoon and their lives changed in the flash of a second. The family had to flee and start afresh in an India caught in the throes of the freedom struggle.
He found his path in life serving as an Army Officer in the Territorial Army and fighting in three wars. His personal life was nomadic with family, friends and colleagues crossing and crisscrossing his path. Like the mighty Indian Railways taking him to various military postings and roaring through scenic and stark terrains, in sunny and stormy weather; his life, and the lives of those around him, go through its ups and downs.
Burma to Bangalore is an engaging account of a boy, an officer, and a veteran, as his memories go marching past.
