From a Rock Hunter’s Diary is a collection of assorted short narratives, some fictional, some anecdotic. Based on real life experiences of a Geologist, who wandered through the hills and valleys, and jungles and cities of India, these gripping accounts take the readers to wildernesses with lurking tigers, slithering snakes, gem mafias and dreadful dacoits. In the ‘Doab’ stories the author talks about the early years of his career in picturesque Karnataka, and his adventures in the rugged hinterland. The fascinating fictional tales include the story of a meteorite which set a non-descript south Pacific island aglow; a volcanologist’s eye witness account of eruption of a dormant volcano, a freak incident of poisoning and the investigation to solve the mystery and some other fascinating stories.
