“So what if he started eating, drinking, talking, walking, independently, a lot later than most kids? That didn’t mean anything was wrong with him. It just meant he was a little slow. Alas, if I had only thought like that when I used to scold him, or slap him on his plump cheeks at the first sign of mischief or unruly behaviour, so that he wouldn’t cause any trouble in front of other people.”
A story of an innocent soul brought into this world with a pinch of something extra and unique in his ingredients list. A mother of 33 years, unfolds her journey of her fears for her child, her redeemed self-acceptance and her confidence in her own son!
But will she be able to overlook the sniping comments of the on lookers? Will she teach her son to conform to the society? Or will she be the support her son can lean on?

A brilliant memento to all those who are privvy to the secret life depicted here.
The body of writing flows masterfully from memory to reality to fantasy to reality and leaves the reader in love with Mustafa and wanting to tell him so.
A carefully balanced insight, and a much needed light, shed at last with power and truth.
Writing to be truly proud of.
