“What is life if full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?”
In our daily rigmarole, we forget to observe and appreciate the good work done by noble souls around us. Even the mainstream media, which happens to be the prime source of information about the developments around us, doles out only the gory details, giving us the feel of living in kalyug. But all is not lost and gloomy as vested interests would like us to believe. There is a glimmering ray of hope in the form of a dedicated battalion of Bharatvasis who contribute to the betterment our Motherland in their own unique, subtle way, away from the material trappings of glitz, glory and glamour. This book is a collection of such bravehearts and their way of saying ‘Maa tujhe Salaam’ through their noteworthy work. Put together by a veteran journalist, Shri M.G. Vaidya, known for his incisive mind, sharp wit and insightful understanding of Bhar-
atiya way of life, Mera Bharat Mahan is a tribute to all such unknown and unsung heroes, who make true Bharat. Let’s appreciate them, emulate them and pray for their tribe to increase.
