Book Description

"These people have no life-story to tell. What then are you going to write about? You will just refer to some well known events. Nobody, however, knows their real life their inner life."

I planned to pen Vinoba's biography and a Savant confronted me: "why do you want to write about something you don't know?"

Vinoba said often with humour, "Bapu called his autobiography 'My Experiments with Truth'. If I write one, I will call it 'my experiments with untruth', because I don't remember anything at all. So whatever I may write will be a soulless story. There will no soul in it, only a 'story'. That is why I do not write."

He did not write. Others too should not really write. Such persons are born in this world and dazzle every one. One thinks one has seen something, but it is only a mirage. Man sees the seven component colours of the sun's light but the seven-coloured rainbow is only a mirage pleasing to the eye, enjoyable, making one happy, but a mirage nonetheless. Scientists say that at either end of the rainbow there are quite a few things like infra red rays, ultra violet ray and so on, identified by different names, but much more is hidden. In sum, we neither 'see' nor understand the real light.

And yet people go on writing. They write biographies of great men, tell others what they themselves do not understand because they do not know enough to realize their lack of knowledge.
