Introduction Since our Hindu culture lays great emphasis on practice, and virtually ignores empty intellectual arguments that are unaccompanied by any positive action, these few memoirs from Dr. Hedgewar's life assume tremendous importance in the Hindu Renaissance of today. These simple incidents touch the heart, and the actions depicted therein show the depth of national character, of a towering personality. Imbued with profound meaning, Dr.Hedgewar's day-to-day activities and conversations have become the fountainhead of inspiration for millions worldwide.

Like the holy Ganga river, these holistic memoirs have cleansed away the centuries - old, accumulated bad habits from our people. Like a skilled sculptor, Doctorjee carved out magnificent national foundation pillars from ordinary school children. These memoirs are from their devoted hearts and from their inspired lives dedicated to the service of Bharatmata.

May these memoirs forever be the beacons of everlasting inspiration in our hearts. May they give us the towering personality and stability of the Himalayas; the purity of mother Ganga; the depth of the ocean, the courage of the lion, and a creativity soaring to the skies. May we be inspired like the Rishi Dadheechi, to give our all, for Bharatmata. May we feel inspired to follow the lofty footsteps of Rashtra Rishi (National Seer) Dr. Hedgewar. May the Lord Almighty bless us in our endeavor!
