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 have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
