Read all about - his early life and struggle to support the family after his father's death - his move to Britain and the establishment of his first UK business - his company Noon Products and the catastrophic fire that became his finest hour - the recent 'cash for honours' scandal which embroiled Tony Blair, Lord Levy and many others - his dealings with premiers and world statesmen, royalty and business leaders - his views on the issues of immigration and nationality - not to mention his love of cricket!This is a candid story from a man who values his family, friends and country - both his birthplace and his adopted home. Despite many setbacks his indomitable spirit enabled him to meet challenges and succeed. Throughout his life he has made many friends and helped innumerable people, and when he needed help, particularly when his Noon Products factory was destroyed by fire, both friends and clients were there to help him recover. After selling the business to WT Foods, his own charitable company, the Noon Foundation was established and for his many efforts in this sector he was awarded an MBE.Increasingly, his time was spent working with many different charities and the Queen honoured him with a knighthood. Sir Gulam accepted nomination for a peerage but the 'cash for honours' storm erupted. He relates the incident from his personal perspective - his anger, humiliation, frustration and depression. He considers his relations with the police, the media, the Government, Tony Blair and other senior members of the Labour Party. He also reflects upon the tough questions facing Britain today, such as education, immigration, terrorism, and the role of the government and private citizens. He pulls no punches but his story demands respect - it deamds to be read.
