Afsar Ali Khan, scion of an aristocratic family that goes back many generations, still lives in the fairy-tale world of his forefathers. However, the discovery of a long-hidden family secret leads him on a quest where he comes across a variety of people - such as Noor Ahmed, a man in search of his origins, and Simon Pearce-Herford, the young Englishman enchanted by all things historical. Combining philosophy and history with delightful anecdotes of a royal family, Reflections of an Uncommon Man re-creates a world that has long been lost, while re-affirming the need to let go of the past. About the Author Aminuddin Khan was born in Hyderabad in 1932, a descendant of the old aristocracy of the former princely state. His family's connection with the Asaf Jahi dynasty goes back to 1724. He is an industrial psychologist, a management consultant and the administrator of the Nizam's private estate. He is also engaged in setting up the archives of the Asaf Jahi dynasty in Chowmahala Palace, Hyderabad. A novelist in his spare time, he is the author of A Way Through the Woods, A Shift in the Wind and A Right Royal Bastard.
