The book is a brief biography of an outstanding Indian, Minoo Masani. A participant in the freedom struggle, thinker, author, parliamentarian and politician, Masani became an overnight celebrity as the author of a book for children Our India.

A runaway bestseller which appealed to the national pride of the Indian. Masani was a member of the Constituent Assembly and later a member of the Lok Sabha between 1957 and 1971.

He will be remembered as a thinker and principled politician who traversed the entire political spectrum from Marx to Gandhi and a close associate of C. Rajagopalachari in founding the Swatantra Party which was the largest party in the opposition in the fourth Lok Sabha.

He was the doyen of the liberal movement in independent India. Even though he retired from politics in 1971 he stoutly opposed the emergency through Freedom First, the journal he edited. In short, his life was a saga of value-driven politics.
