Retired Professor of History, Agastya Sahai, ought to be every pupil’s comeback when pulled up for daydreaming.
Sahai, the schizo, witnesses episodes through the ages, first hand. He’s lived through every peak and trough and twist, on battlefields and conflict zones, in courts and castles, at conferences and negotiations, amongst monarchs and mutineers, stockpiling every debacle; every triumph to reminisce in retirement.
History, they say, is like a labyrinth. Once you’re inside, who knows where it may lead…
To our hallucinatory professor, this is indeed, his-story.
