Most of my earliest childhood memories have blown away against cheerful headwinds or painful shockwaves, however the strongest and the most impactful memories are still barely clinging, awaiting an onset of old age and a growing family. In this memoir, "Curious One", I converted my early childhood adventure snapshots into words, just like an adhesive tape trying to keep an old photo on a crumbling wall.

My memoir vividly portrays my distant past, as an adventurous little boy in India, which will take you as far back as sixty-five years.

My early childhood was spent in a farming family that moved to Vadodara, the second biggest city of Gujarat in India. I'll bring you into my life in three distinctly different environments of my formative years, from age five through age eight. The three environments played a significant role in my life. I leave it up to you, my readers, to judge why that is so.

My memory of those early years still amazingly flashes back in snapshots like the frozen images in films spinning out at the slightest trigger during activities of my daily life. My awareness during these four early years enabled me to collect memorable snapshots filled with emotions and lessons learned from different locales, cultures, and customs, and the differences nurtured my mind, filling me with questions and some answers.
