About the Book

Chachaji had a way of recalling events, telling stories and creating a lively and compelling stories and creating a lively and compelling atmosphere; often a little fiction or imagination mingled with facts. But the tale told by him was interesting and often carried a ring of higher truth. He inspired countless people through his unique storytelling art, guiding and leading them towards higher life values-moral and spiritual.

In his chequered life he had seen many ups and downs. But through all his best at the altar of the highest truth he could envision at any given point of time. He was influenced by the teachings of several saints and sages and had imbibed the essence of Indian culture. He had a huge store of experiences which he freely offered to all for their benefit.

His observant eye missed nothing, he had a genius for spotting the unusual, the exceptional ant the droll-and he found the right words to invoke the odd fact that had caught his eye.

We present in this book a selection of his inspiring reminiscences.
