Take a journey with New Zealand author Alan M Brooker that starts in Colonial India under the British Raj before the last World War, and follows over 66 years of change and challenge. We follow his family as they leave India and traveled to New Zealand to take up a new lifestyle - without relatives, friends, or the many servants which had made European life in India an enjoyable experience.

The clouds of war were already appearing on the European horizon in 1934, when, in the middle of a tropical storm half a world away, a baby decided to make his appearance in spite of the thunder, rain and a power-cut. It survived to proudly bear the title of a Common Man.

This is one such journey as it follows New Zealand author Alan M Brooker through 60 years of change and challenge. We follow his family as they leave India and traveled to New Zealand to take up a new lifestyle - without relatives, friends, or the many servants who had made European life in India an enjoyable experience.

Leaving school to become a reporter, Brooker then joined the New Zealand air force and traveled extensively around his new country as well as the South Pacific.

Life is full of challenges, and this journey is an insight into many of these.
Excerpt
In many strata of our modern Western Society it is considered a derogatory statement to be labeled a Common Man, yet it is a label that I wear as proudly as any title or award I've ever gained - and with no reluctance or embarrassment.
Look at your own Life, and the lives of those around you.
Are they really so very different?
Sure, they may have different coloured pigments in their skin, definitely different physical shapes and most probably they come from different cultural backgrounds, yet these are the traits that mark their origin and individuality without removing the common link that ties all humanity together.
