‘I’ll Follow the Sun’

By Akhil Bakshi


I’ll Follow the Sun chronicles the author’s nonlinear journeys around the world and to the ends of the earth. Full of wit and satire, Bakshi’s story-telling and descriptions of eccentric and heart-warming characters, remote and quirky places, and current and past events are amusing. His descriptions of the mountains and lakes of New Zealand, the volcanoes of Bali, the ruins of Angkor, the train ride across the Tibetan Plateau, a stomach-churning drive into the secluded Nubra Valley, and an exhilarating trek to Everest and Patagonia, are vivid and keep the reader involved every moment.  And prepare to laugh – hard and often. Bakshi’s astute, and at times refreshingly irreverent eye and penetrating observations skewer history and politics in a delightfully thought-provoking prose. An entertaining exploration of our mad – but beautiful – world, I’ll Follow the Sun is full of surprises. Expect the unexpected – with humour and charm.
