Description
About the Book

Chachaji had a way of recalling events, telling stories and creating a lively and compelling atmosphere; often a little fiction or imagination mingled with facts. But the tale told by him was interesting and often carried a ring of higher truth. He inspired countless people through his unique storytelling art, guiding and leading them towards higher life values-moral and spiritual.

He was influenced by the teachings of several saints and sages and had imbibed the essence of Indian culture. He had a huge store of experiences which he freely offered to all for their benefit.

His observant eye missed nothing, he had a genius for spotting the unusual, the exceptional and the droll, and he found the right words to invoke the odd fact that had caught his eye.

This book includes a variety of interesting stories and other writings that came from Chachaji' s pen-reminiscences, allegories or simple observations. They may be vignettes on profound truths or just funny jottings and titbits-but all readable.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.
Rupesh
Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
