HONEYBEES OF SOLOMON About The Book This book contains reminiscences of the Author as Judge for twenty-five years. Apart from a few travelogue and acquaintances with personages, the descriptions are live stories of human life displayed in different courts where he was judge. The author has avoided narrating matrimonial disputes due to statutory constraints. The narratives have been recollected from memory.
