Nagpur businessman Vilas Kale recently released his book – It Was A Happy Trusting World, Then – about his 1971 hitchhiking trip with his cousins to Middle East and Europe. Apart from book lovers, also present at the occasion were President of Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Anand Jaiswal (who also reviewed the book), Kale’s family and his close friends.

The book is about a then 20-year-old Vilas Kale and his two cousins Vidula and Kumar taking an impromptu hitchhiking trip to Middle East and Europe from May 2 to August 1 1971.
