Daddyji is, at first glance, a biographical portrait of Amolak Ram Mehta,
a distinguished Indian public-health officer, written by his son Ved
Mehta, but in reality, as the story unfolds, it is seen to be a recreation,
in crystalline detail, of a whole world—the everyday life of pre-Partition
Lahore. Daddyji (1972) is the first book in Mehta’s extraordinary series of
memoirs, Continents of Exile.
