Yusuf Arakkal recalls vivid images of his childhood. One of them is that of a young boy sitting on a sturdy rock silently gazing at an uncertain future.
Running away from his home in Chavakkad (in Kerala) to Bangalore he had to sleep in the cold, eat meagrely, wash and drink from public tap. This is an unforgotten self-portrait of Yusuf Arakkal.
