E M Forster was a remarkable personality whose life and works have helped bridge the gap between the cultures of the East and the West. In this book, first published in 1964 - the year that marked both Forster's 85th birthday as also the 40th anniversary of the publication of his A Passage to India - six prominent writers from the Indian subcontinent have joined hands to pay tribute to the great man. This volume includes Forster's tribute to Mahatma Gandhi and selections from Abinger Harvest, The Hill of Devi, A Passage to India and Two Cheers for Democracy.
