"Are you in search of fundamental facts? Go, read the forehead of a student, where, in the contraction full of questions and in the expansion full of answers travel the facts, this is the secret of student's shining forehead." "Have you ever seen a student wandering in search of a book? Books are the testimonies that illustrate the relationships. In India, the student in his primary education learns a bow: to touch the feet of the teacher and to touch the book with his forehead." Deepak's life takes us to several influential and admirable lives, few seemingly miraculous events that took place in his life, his struggles during higher studies, his reflections and analysis of the discussed events. The area of facts and issues related with human life widens by degrees as the chapters are reached gradually. With his remarkable efforts of simplification, Deepak endeavours to harmonize different tendencies of man.
