About the Book :- Mr. Butani has done a splendid job of telling this story in a clear yet effective style, bringing Baba Hariram, a saint of Sind, to live and move among us once again.
He has dealt with all the aspects of his life, but above all, sought to make the point that “spiritual exhibitionism was in fact foreign to his nature: the real fact was that he was terribly human”.
