This book unlocks a trunkful of heart warming, tickling and emotional memories that the author has collected over a period of fourteen years, having been married to an army officer. She narrates her everyday tales filled with laughter, glee and myriad emotions. The stories will tickle your funny bone, warm the cockles of your heart, and at times touch an emotional chord inside you. The book is a light read which any person can relate to. This book does not look to glorify the armed forces nor is it a travelogue. It is yours and mine everyday stories. Armed forces families can be easily classified as the gypsies of modern India, moving from station to station, settling in one corner of the country for two to three years, before packing up again and moving to a new location. However, each station and house that they live in, leaves them with a rich trove of memories and experiences, which get packed with their trunks, once it’s time to move on.
The author is an educationist who has taken a temporary sabbatical. She hopes to travel one day to far away exotic places and write about them, sharing her stories with everyone. She belongs to the beautiful valley of Dehradun. Though, presently, she is enjoying the rustic charms of U.P. , being stationed in a military cantonment with her husband and children. She is still busy unpacking her trunks, not knowing where the future beckons her and her family next. Over the fourteen years of being a part of the military family, she has learnt to take this uncertainty in her stride and find humour in the day to day nitty gritty of life. Welcome to her world as she gallops her way through her life, taking things as they come, and finding joy in the small things
