Wisdom Song: The Life Of Baba Amte
Wisdom Song: The Life Of Baba Amte
Description
From the Jacket:

Born into privilege and wealth, Murlidhar devidas Amte was a maverick who wanted to live life to the fullest. He realized early on that he had to live, not for himself, but for others or else all his privilege, position and superior personal qualities would be mere tinsel.

The pioneering commune at Anandwan. Where those affected by leprosy could live with dignity and pride; the Bharat Jodo marches across the length and breadth of India to Promote national unity and harmony; the decade-long vigil by the Narmada river in solidarity with those at the receiving end of state-sponsored environmental devastation Baba Amte did this and much more coping the whole time with a crippling spinal degenerative disease. The countless lives transformed by three generations of the Amte family are shining testimonials to the magnitude of Baba Amte's vision, and the indomitable spirit which made that vision real.

With in death conversations with Baba and interviews with many his close friends and family, this biography is equally a record of the collective memory of those who have known him best. What emerges is an intimate portrait of one of the few individuals in our times who have embodied the cherished ideals of compassion and selfless service.

About the Author:

She was born in Pune, where she attended Fergusson College and graduated with a B. A. in French Literature.

In 21001 she embarked on a new lifelong, self-education research project that included the writing of Wisdom Song. She runs a small business, Universal by Design, and a nonprofit project, Niya.
