No Heaven for Gunga Din, the story of a futuristic Iranian novel from 1965

Ali Mirdrekvandi was a poorly-educated native of Lorestan who taught himself enough English to write his mystical fable, No Heaven For Gunga Din, while working at an officers’ mess in Tehran during World War II. The book tells the story of 83 American and British officers and their servant, Gunga Din, as they journey across the Milky Way in search of heaven in the year 2084.
