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. Abandoning her dreams of becoming an interpreter, she completed an M.S. in Integrated Marketing Communication at Northwestern University in Evanston, USA. Neesha then worked in corporate America developing strategy for clients, running marketing campaigns and starting new ventures. 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.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!

I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
