Description
About the Book

India has been a witness to some great personalities in her long history. These real life heroes have showed us what it takes to become an extraordinary human being with their courage, wisdom and dedication.

This volume of 'Lives that Inspire' is a collection of life sketches of such great men and women, who, with their compassion, zeal, acumen and love for their motherland, paved a meaningful path for youth to follow. Their bravery, humanity, dynamism and simplicity encourage us to believe that within all of us, lies the untapped power to change, awaken and inspire the generations to come.

Preface

NATION-building is a long drawn-out process. A nation can be compared with the human mind. The mind is impacted upon by various kinds of influences, which are sometimes similar, at times complement each other and mutually contradictory at some other point of time. Nation-building is not done by a few prominent personalities, but it is the nation which shapes these personalities. Indeed, once moulded, the personality itself exercises its own impact on the nation. The biggest force that creates history is the people. Great men are those who guide the people on to the path of progress. Though the loftiest thoughts lie dormant in books, the colossal personality of these figures transforms these ideas into a vehicle of change.

This collection comprises life-sketches of such great personalities of India, whose thoughts not only influenced the society during their times but are a source of inspiration for the country even today. All these great names are indelibly associated with the honour and identity of our country.

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...
