An Indian Education
Ram Pace grew up in Rome with a sacred fire in his living room and a holy man for a father. At five years of age, his mother left him in a foster home to “follow her bliss”. Ram was taken to Rome by his father, who raised him in a hippie community, before leaving him on his own again to become a Hindu hermit, a Baba in India.
On the cusp of adulthood, Ram undertook a journey to India to look for his missing father who had devoted his life to Shiva. With the birth of his own child, Ram learned to come to terms with his abandonment, his feeling of rejection and his hunger for love. This intense memoir is a marvelous and incredible tale of resilience, parental reconciliation and acceptance.
