The book chronicles the journey of this well-known geologist along with snippets of his scientific work and reflections over the years
Dr Jafar is the youngest son of Syed Hamid Hasan, a Tehsildar who was forced into retirement after his eldest son fought the British tooth and nail in India. Dr. Jafar’s love for nature, nurtured in his childhood, made him learn varied disciplines of science. “I am simply a middle-class boy who worked very hard to climb up the ladder of academics to carve out an illustrious career in science. This book is quite special to me as it chronicles my entire journey. I think the readers would find it interesting to read about times that remind them of what life was like more than eight decades ago, scientific work that goes back millions of years, and reflections from a curious mind about problems that will stay relevant now and in the future,” said the author. Dr. Jafar draws inspiration equally from the geometry of the cosmos and the nano-world, which he has observed and studied over many years of working with high-powered electron microscopes. The author resides in Bangalore with his wife Ann Satwatara Jafar. They have three children and four grandchildren. Audacity to Aspire has been launched and is available on Amazon, Flipkart, and other e-commerce sites.
