UP to the end of the early nineties, apartheid devastated almost all aspects of South African life.

However, Sonny Pillay, descendant of Indian slaves brought to work the sugar plantations, refused to give up his dream of becoming a karateka.

The absorbing story of Sonny’s chequered life is told in an engrossing biography, Reaching for the Mango written by leading South African author, playwright and former sports editor Ronnie Govender.
