From the Jacket :

Raj Kapoor, the creator of such classics of the silver screen as Awara, Aag and Sangam, is many things to many people producer, director, actor, editor, musician, storyteller, a man of many moods, and an acknowledged patriarch of India's film industry. He is also known to the world as an extraordinary and controversial showman, a lover, an idealist, a reformer. There will be endless debates about his exact contribution to the art of film-making, but few can deny that he was the greatest entertainer of Hindin cinema. He worked within the cinematic tradition he inherited, modified it, added new elements to it, and thus produced a distinctive, seductively romantic and immensely popular oeuvre.

In this pictorial tribute, his daughter Ritu Nanda uses his own words, culled from interviews, journals and anecdotes, to give us a unique 'autobiography'. As revealing as it is engaging, this is a fascinating record for posterity of the life and work of the man widely regarded as 'the last true movie mogul of Indian cinema'.
