An educator, a jurist, a diplomat and a journalist – four diversely talented sons of a Chitrapur Saraswat family,
and their journey through life as-it-was, in the late 19th century and first half of 20th century. What were the
defining social and political events in pre-independence India, what did it mean for social equity, for women’s
status, for rule of law... these questions form a starting point for this book.
Here is a story of the Benegal family, hailing from a little-known coastal community in southwestern India –
who could as well be called global citizens in many senses. This is an informal history of their lives and times.

Kanchan Karopady Bannerjee born in Mumbai, started her career as a copywriter in an advertising agency. She later moved to Bangalore where she turned to the social sector. Currently she is the Honorary Secretary of Indian Cancer Society, as well as a Trustee on the Board of Karunashraya, a Cancer Hospice in Bengaluru. Earlier she was the Managing Trustee of Akshara Foundation, a not-for-profit organization working to improve learning capacities of less privileged children. She writes for children in multiple languages. She lives in Bangalore with her husband Moloy Bannerjee who is a software entrepreneur. She has two sons Chaitanya and Siddharth who are employed.
