Vivid Imaginations – A Memoir:
A CAI donor has pledged $50,000 towards the SGH orphanage project in Andheri, Mumbai, India IF I can raise an additional $50,000 through the sale of my next book, Vivid Imagination – A Memoir. It is a recount of a memorable life of a Khoja Muslim with Gujarati genes, born and reared in E. Africa, migrating to the Middle East and then to the US. A frank and self-critical account, funny and somber and telling. A not to be missed read insha’Allah. You can read a brief preview here.
So PLEASE, for the sake of these poor orphan girls and for the pleasure of Allah only, please, purchase a copy? For legal and administrative purposes, the US$50 is not tax-deductible and must be purchased online at bit.ly/VividImaginations. Allah bless.
Please note this book will be published the first quarter of 2020 and mailed immediately thereafter insha’Allah.
