Written by the founder of an industrial empire, G.D.Birla shares with readers his experiences of his association with the Father of the Nation. Notably, the writings carry not only a personal account, but also reflections of the prevailing national scenario, with social and political commentary. The author includes several pressing issues in his book, from the need of self-discipline, to education, rural reform, fight against caste diversions, and the Indian employee. All these articles are based on his discussions with Gandhiji and the conclusions drawn. The foundation of the book is Birla’s thirty-eight year old friendship and contact with Gandhiji and his teachings.
