In his moving memoir, Lost Decency, Atta Arghandiwal shares his own as well the Afghan people's journey to escape their war-torn country. Spanning a history of 50 years, Atta tells his life story of growing up in Afghanistan and having to leave. In his memoir, he reveals the truth about his beloved and once peaceful nation and how it became one of the deadliest and most dangerous countries in the world.
Atta Arghandiwal was born in Afghanistan but has lived over half his life in the West. Leaving Afghanistan after the Russian invasion in 1980, he became a refugee in Germany, and then immigrated to the United States, where he built a successful banking career of twenty-eight years. He wrote his story to increase awareness about his native country's political upheaval and the people who have been caught in the chaos.
