vinobaIn the form of 52 letters - one a week, written over a year - the author introduces some of the insightful thoughts of Vinoba to Pranav, a young man of twelve. Vinoba was a willing soldier, a keen student, a versatile scholar, a scintillating synthesizer, a social activist, a spiritual seeker and a great satyagrahi - all rolled into one. Every Indian, young and old, should have a feel of this great son of India.

Reading him is best and reading about him is the second best. The author hopes the reader will get sufficiently provoked to read Vinoba's writings.. Main Page page contents
