I personally am very fond of memoirs. I guess this stems from having read many of them at a young age. Most of the memoirs I read came from leading military figures of the Second World War. I think they gave me excellent perspectives of that monumental war . I also developed a major interest in things military which have stayed with me till now.

On a more personal note, I did have ( or should I say I do have) a personal blog called “Looking At Life“. This has some elements of  early memories of my childhood. Memoirs is simply too grandiose a term for them!
