The book chronicles the four decade journey of the writer with the International Theatre Institute, the largest organisation of performing arts in the world. The reader could also get an idea how the institute came into being after the horrifying experience of the Word War II with a purpose to establish peace through promotion of international exchange of knowledge and practice in the domain of performing arts. The writer observed the activities of the ITI closely since 1981 and gradually became actively involved. The growth of the Bangladesh Centre of ITI has also been portrayed in the right sequence. One can get an idea of the colourful diversity of world theatre through the eyes of the writer who has widely travelled many countries, came in contact with so many wonderful personalities from varied cultures. As the worldwide President of ITI for six years, he was at the helm of affairs of the organisation which has now got around one hundred national centres
around the world.
