From the Jacket

Rani Ahilyabai is a name that invokes reverence in the hearts of every Indian. Though she had departed a long ago, yet because of her dedicated services towards the mankind she continues to stay in our hearts as Lokmata.

Ahilyabai did not rule a geographically large kingdom. Even the sphere of her activities were limited. Outside the boundries of her kingdom Lokmata Ahilyabai got the temples constructed at all the famous places of pilgrimage throughout India; got the wells and ponds dug; got the roads con-strutted and improved; got the grainstores opened for the needy ones, appointed learned pandits in the temples for the contemplation and preaching on scriptures; above all she abandoned the false attachment of snobbery and strived to do justice till her last breath.

In a nutshell, this book is a saga of the life of Lokmata Ahilyabai. Every stage of her life finds an expression in the book.
