2 Ved Mehta
Daddyji
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174367527 / 9788174367525; Softcover; New; 
Daddyji is a biographical portrait of Amolak Ram Mehta, a distinguished Indian public-health officer, written by his son, Ved Mehta. As the story unfolds, it also becomes a re-creation, in crystalline detail, of a whole world - the everyday life of a family in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century India. Growing up in Punjab villages, Daddyji moved to Lahore (which he had always heard was 'the educational center of the world') and encountered running water for the first time. Completing his studies in medicine there, he sailed for London to take degrees in public health and tropical medicine and returned to India to do notable work in cholera and bubonic plague. Many journeys later, he succeeded his father as head of the Mehta family and joined the Punjab Public Health Department. Along the way, he married, built a house in Lahore, flashed about on a motorcycle on medical errands, became a rationalist and an irrepressible gambler and raised a large, talented family. Ved Mehta has written about his father with objectivity and filial affection. He has written about India with pure magic. Printed Pages: 195. 108521

The Essential Ved Mehta
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2013; 0670087009 / 9780670087006; Softcover; New; 
The Essential Ved Mehta is the definitive collection of the author’s work, containing excerpts from nearly all his writings, many of which first appeared in William Shawn’s New Yorker. It begins with his first book, the classic autobiography highlighting his blindness, Face to Face, and goes on to feature, among others, his iconic books about India and his great family saga Continents of Exile. Each entry comes with a reflection by Mehta. Authoritative and illuminating, The Essential Ved Mehta is not just an introduction to this seminal writer but also a passionate record of a writer looking back upon his own work.Printed Pages: 400. 103449

4 Ved Mehta
Vedi
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174367942 / 9788174367945; Softcover; New; 
Before Vedi was four, meningitis left him blind. But his father, a well-to-do, England-trained doctor, was determined that his son receives the best education India could offer a blind child. At Dadas School in Bombay, thirteen hundred miles from home, Vedi at first felt isolated. There was the obstacle of language: he spoke only Punjabi, the other children spoke only Marathi, and the principal was determined to teach him English. There were the differences of class and age: Vedi was from 'a cultured home', and therefore wore shoes and proper clothes, and took his meals with the principal's family; many of the other children were street waifs, and much older. In time, Vedi learned to get along without his family, without familiar sounds and scents and tastes, long before any ordinary child learns self-reliance. He also learned to read and write English Braille, to add and subtract, to play like all boys and to get along with schoolmates. With the Second World War imminent, Vedi left Dadas School and returned home. Yet, as his father knew, and as he himself came to know, the education he received afforded him a chance for a meaningful life. He grasped it eagerly. Vedi is Ved Mehta's out-of-the-ordinary memory of childhood experiences - trying to find out, struggling to fit in, wanting to be loved, playing, dreaming - during the years that ordinarily make up childhood.
