This is an ambitious book. It tries to do two things at the same time—celebrate the life and work so far of a very special individual, the Indian spiritual leader and social activist Swami Agnivesh, and capture the reality of a remarkable country, India.

On the occasion of Swami Agnivesh reaching the age of 70, several eminent Indians (and one from abroad) bring together their reflections on today's India as well as on the major issues that continue to shape, unite and divide society and polity in India and elsewhere. The contributors constitute an eclectic group—leading figures in contemporary science, art, economics, and sociology; together with eminent journalists, environmentalists, social entrepreneurs and activists (including several Magsaysay Award winners), a politician, a former bureaucrat, a former chief executive officer (CEO) of a major Indian company, a former Chief Justice of India and a Supreme Court judge, a retired chief of the Indian navy, and finally, spiritual leaders of several faiths.
