Description
Preface

Writing Acharya Narendra Dev's biography was a challenging task. He left behind, hardly any documents about himself. Even if there were any, they were not preserved. Those who had them, or collected them, declined to part with them. Most of his childhood friends and contemporary acquaintences, were no more. Therefore, collecting the requisite material for his biography, and meeting the people associated with him, to gain information about him, was both time consuming and expenditure incurring. This posed difficulties.

A successful biographer knows how much time and efforts go into compiling an intimate biography. Yet, the request of friends at Publications Division, was my heart's own desire and acceptable too. I will always remain in Acharya's debt. The affection that I received from him, was invaluable. Writing this biography, has not in any way, freed me of his debt, but only increased the yearning to study and understand him better.

This biography is a serious attempt to catch a glimpse into his psyche. If, through this endeavour, there increases in the readers too, the urge to learn more about him, follow his ideals, and read his writings, then I will be happy otherwise too: I will be satisfied, considering this, a tribute to all those who assisted me in writing this, with all their goodwill. I am particularly glad to record my gratitude to Shri Ajay Kumar and Shri Chandra Dutt.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
