There is a need for books like this one- books which document the struggle of the first generations of immigrants and their children to carve a place in their society , and then provide the foundation for the next generation to achieve even greater success. In broad terms this is general knowledge. What is valuable in this book is the step by step description detailing the road map by which one successful educator did so. What is also appreciated is the incidental description of day to day life in pre independence Trinidad. Congratulations - post humous though they have to be- to Dr. Khan for the foresight in documenting his memoirs for the benefit of those who -generations later - are curious about the journey. Congratulations also to the biographer -his daughter -Brenda - for identifying the need for these memoirs to be published - and to receive a wider audience than just his family, as well as undertaking the task of bringing the book into being. I would recommend this book for its insights into the secret of success and its transmission to later generations

Memoirs of Dr. Andrew Moonir Khan: Journey of an Educator is a biographical work by Mrs. Brenda C. Mohammed focusing on the life story of a young teacher during the period of indentureship in the Caribbean. Andrew was the son of indentured immigrants from India, living and working in Trinidad and Tobago, and the tale is compiled both from the original memoirs of Dr. Khan and from recreated prose by his daughter, Brenda. The tale spans Dr. Khan’s very successful career in education, during which he was afforded international opportunities for success, and explains how he took the great life lessons which he learned from his working life out into the Presbyterian church as an Elder.
Mrs. Brenda C. Mohammed has done a wonderful job in bringing the life, philosophy and personality of Dr. Andrew Khan to life in this compilation of teachings. As an educator myself, I was particularly interested in Dr. Khan’s individualistic approach to students and the humanitarian way in which he achieved success. Memoirs of Dr. Andrew Moonir Khan presents the life of an inspiring man who struggled through underprivileged circumstances to rise to the top of his field, all without losing his generosity of spirit or his creativity. For educators, the book demonstrates how passion and planning can lead to a great many good things in the future, but for a wider audience the book holds value as an inspiring story of faith and commitment to one’s true path. I would recommend this book for biography fans seeking a deep but feel good read."
