I am grateful to all my well-wishers who lent their unstinted support for bringing the eventful life of Shri Malik in a book form for the benefit of all those who care to read it.
Revered Swami Gokulanandaji aptly described that Shri• Malik had always put up a smiling face. My own experience during my close association with Shri Chander Mani Malik amply testifies this fact Revered Swami Jitatmanandaji also expressed in a poetic way the inner core of Shri Malik saying, "The ochre entered his soul".
I have had several unforgettable experiences with Chander Mani ji. He was spick-and-span in his attire and demeanor with regard to his relationship with friends. It is no exaggeration to say in the phraseology of Bhartrihari, the great poet of Southern India, that Chander Mani ji was a 'Lion' so far as his honesty is concerned. Just as the Lion does not eat grass under any circumstances, Shri Chander Mani Malik never compromised and sacrificed honesty under any circumstances.
I now suffer from a great obsession. I happened to be in Delhi visiting him during his last critical moments and he requested me to be at his bedside just for one day. I tried my best to do so, but as there was no seat available in the aircraft of any Airlines the next day, I had to leave Delhi on that day itself and thus my dearest Chander Mani's solicitation could not be fulfilled and he passed away on that very day after I left. This remains a painful memory even today.
