Shantanu Lakshman Rao Kirloskar

Few months back I was at the library of National Law School of India University and among the law books chanced to see a book personally written by S L Kirloskar. It made very interesting reading and I spent considerable time reading it.Sadly I  dont remember the exact name of the book but he has very lucidly and in very simple style elaborated his life in the early part of the 20th century and the early large scale manufacture of cycles by his father LAKSHMAN RAO KASHINATH KIRLOSKAR and later Pumps. He even explains the incidence of Plague to which his mother fell victim and their relocation to Belgaum if Iam not mistaken at length.Such books give deep insight into the era through which mankind progressed in general.
