Mohan Kambampati is a former geologist who emigrated to Canada and later the US, where he served as the director of the non-profit Wichita Indochinese Center, raised two sons, and now enjoys Indian classical music and performing arts with his wife, Lakshmi. He has published his book “Music of Existence”: a candid, educational, and inspiring autobiography.

Mohan writes, “This memoir unfolds human drama. It is a powerful and emotional story of one family’s emigration from India to the United States. It depicts the cultural differences, lessons learned and current learnings, struggles and rewards and pleasures and pains, punctuated with some fascinating and amusing lifestyles in India. A reader will get a glimpse of Indian festivals, it’s philosophy, it’s traditions, and its ideals. This is also a story of human emotions, psyche, character, and integrity. This book reveals a husband’s/father’s struggles and successes, his copious optimism, his emotions and predicaments and him steering his life and the life of his wife and sons through many obstacles.

Just as music conveys emotions like sadness, happiness, anger, tension and release of it, this memoir conveys the same emotion. Hence Music of Existence.”

Published by Page Publishing, Mohan Kambampati’s engrossing book is an excellent choice for readers interested in Indian culture and the experiences of Indian immigrants in America.
“I liked that the author writes in straightforward manner. He includes his flaws and regrets along the way. The author opens up about many mistakes he made along the way in many areas of his life. His achievements shine though, yet it is through the revelation of his oversights that the work becomes realistic as his life experiences offer incredible learning points.

I also appreciated the many instances in the memoir where the author includes information about the history and culture of the Indian people. The writer acknowledges the strengths of each culture and time period aspects.

Music of Existence by Mohan Kambampati is an inspiring read that reveals the imperfection of its characters and also their fortitude as they face life’s hurdles.” –EmunahAn, Online Bookclub

“Readers interested in memoirs that document life-affirming revelations and interactions will relish the broader scope and perspective of Music of Existence.” --Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review

“What is so special and unique of this memoir is unlike most of the other autobiographies this is not all about the author himself. He talks about his home country, India. Their travels in part of rural India and their disappointment at seeing the village life getting changed so much and the loss of old places.” --Arpan Ghosh (Book Blogger)

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Music of Existence” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
