Dr. Man Mohan Kakar's memoir - "Press on Regardless - My Life in Army and Beyond" unveils an extraordinary life marked by unexpected twists, soaring professional heights, and crushing lows. His journey, as John Lennon once mused, exemplifies how "life is what happens when you are busy making other plans." Dr. Kakar's unwavering commitment to staying adaptable and embracing new experiences defies convention. He traded academia for military service, a stable career for a UN mission in Afghanistan, and then advised Seychelles' future President. Yet, familial dynamics halted his career at its peak. At nearly sixty, he rebooted as an entrepreneur, and at eighty-two, launched a tech startup. Dr. Kakar is determined not to become a mental or physical fossil.
