Majority of mankind's discoveries and inventions were not achieved in the first attempt itself. There were multiple attempts before reaching the goal. The contributions of those forerunners who actually initiated the journey but failed to reach the summit, though they cleared the road for others to follow and eventually reach the apex, generally gets lost in the glitter of the achiever's accolade. This book is loosely based on the endeavors undertaken in pursuit of finding mineral oil in Assam much before it was eventually discovered in Digboi, the birthplace of oil industry in India.
