It is easy to ignore and forget some truly great men because they do not court publicity. They are too rapt in their service to attract attention with media. Many of them still become icons with their selfless service in the life of living societies. Baba Amte is one of them. He became the sole hope for thousands of sufferers afflicted with the great curse of leprosy.

This biography, written after long and close interactions of the author with Amte and his family, narrates the inspirational story of his career as a social worker. It refreshes our memory about the seriousness of meaningful socio-political action in the age of widespread irresponsibility.
