    Penguin Books Ltd 2013; Not Available

    Daddyji is, at first glance, a biographical portrait of Amolak Ram Mehta, a distinguished Indian public-health officer, written by his son Ved Mehta, but in reality, as the story unfolds, it is seen to be a recreation, in crystalline detail, of a whole world?the everyday life of pre-Partition Lahore.
