The book presents a comprehensive biography of one of the tallest leaders of a generation that contributed to the making of the nation both during pre-independence and post-independence periods with a rare vision and commitment. JP, as he is fondly remembered, is for many, now synonymous with two turbulent and momentous periods of Indian history i.e., his heroic role during Quit India Movement of 1942 and his leadership of 1974 Students' Movement to save democracy in the country. However, the book, translated by the author himself from Hindi with new inputs, gives an insight into the multi faceted personality of JP and his-life long struggle and dedication for the uplift of the down trodden without ever nursing any personal ambition.
