The title of the novel has been taken from the last paragraph of ‘The Memoirs of Aga Khan’.

Mumbai: London-based Jamal Merchant has launched his debut novel ‘One Enduring Lesson’. A property finance broker by profession, Jamal’s novel brings him back to his Indian roots as he traveled Mumbai and Amritsar extensively, to recreate a captivating journey in his novel.

The title of the novel has been taken from the last paragraph of ‘The Memoirs of Aga Khan’ wherein the late His Highness Aga Khan III wrote – “Life in the ultimate analysis has taught me one enduring lesson. The subject should always disappear in the object.”

This inspiring line is a glimpse into eight years of hard work put in by the author Jamal Merchant to trace the story of the protagonist Rahul Saxena, a British man with a half-Indian heritage.
