The contents of the book have been planned in two sections namely, (a) The Reminiscences and Tributes; and (b) The Essay. The Reminiscences and Tributes reveal the profile and personality of Prof. Gangoly and his deep genius is manifested in his manifold activities.

That he was a painter of merit is witnessed by one in his paintings entitled `The First Image of Buddha, which has been illustrated in this volume. The essays have been contributed by eminent scholars and experts in their respective areas. The article of Swami Prajnanananda on O C Gangoly's findings on the origin and psychic value of the Ragas and Raginis of India reveal a rare side of Prof. Gangoly's contribution to the study of Indian music.

The reminiscences and tributes from eminent friends of Prof. Gangoly like Mulk Raj Anand, Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay and tributes from his admirers like P C Chunder, former union minister for education and culture, have further enriched the volume.
