Rejection By The King Of Nepal Was Not the End Of The Road

At 69, Kul Gautam has written his life story and won an award from the Peace Corps (which is fitting, since a volunteer was one of his early English teachers).

When Kul Gautam got a royal “no” for his passport request, he decided to do something special with his life. He tells of his journey from a tiny village to the upper ranks of the U.N. in a new memoir.
