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.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
