The Black Dog (Paperback)
This is an unusual story of determination and courage of a young man from Goa, who arrived in France with 8 Dollars in pocket. He followed an atypical path to success to achieve impossible dreams. He arrived in France without knowing a word of French, and sacrificed his health to learn and integrate into the French culture, and inspired others to follow. He lived an ordinary life, in spite of his comfortable living in a well to do family in Goa, and did not hesitate to re-start at the bottom of the ladder. He climbed the ladder to reach among the best French professionals, to gain the status of Cadre. He crawled his way from an ordinary unqualified labor to jobs reserved for French with high security clearance. After traveling around the world, he chose to retire in the Philippines, in a small province of Bohol, where he lives a simple, quiet and peaceful life with his new family.
