Institution Child - The Beginning

Gudeta U. Bayissa

Living across cultures is not only a challenge, but also a fun and a huge discovery. One discovers social and cultural codes, systems, prejudices, conflicts and confusions. Institution Child - The Beginning, though fictional and imaginative, brings to readers the making of meanings under different contexts in real time. The ups and downs in human agencies, the trust and mistrust, the deviation and consistency in life across cultures are portrayed in this book on such breathtakingly designed scenery. The book is about love, about confrontation, about commitment and dilemma, and about crying and confessing souls, that are longing to evolve.
