Loving what you do for a living is even greater when you can make a global impact. A writer and journalist has written a book called “Nine Lives”. A collection of stories from people living in the Middle East, “Nine Lives” is nine people telling their stories. His interests have sparked a William Dalrymple affair with India.
Dalrymple’s sympathy and heartfelt emotions are the inspiration to publish these stories that have the potential of touching hearts globally. His efforts have given his readers a special insight to the lives of people many fear, due to the acts of terrorism spawning around the globe. Millions of people worry about this real issue, even some of those living in areas reported to be the birthplace of terrorism.
Through these stories, many traditions and people still adhering to them are made real. Allowing actual people to tell their stories in a narrative fashion is a great way to place these traditions in the limelight. The stories are from average people living day-to-day like many others.
Bringing these sacred traditions to the world is a confession of sorts of the love and respect the author has for the region and its people. His work presents a real look at real people living in India. Non-fiction has become more popular in India since his work has become recognized.
For many writers, approaching real life situations in countries other their own is too daunting to explore and write about. While this may sound unreasonable, it does bring a certain type of insight to Dalrymple’s work. He has created books that explore historical religious concepts, taking readers on walks beside other religions.
Because he is vastly different than most western writers, the William Dalrymple affair grew into a passion and quest for knowledge to be shared with the world. Checking out “Nine Lives” is a worthwhile endeavor for readers ready for a breath of fresh air. This collection of stories told by real people can relay a message in a time of turmoil and fear that everyone has something in common: a seat in the whole of humanity.
One thing is for sure. The William Dalrymple affair with India, is going to carry on and on.
