In November 1969 VINOBA BHAVE returned to Paunar, Wardha, after his successful campaign for Bhoodan in Bihar and remained there till his death in November 1982.
At the Paunar Ashram, many eminent persons like Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan (Frontier Gandhi), Gopal Swarup Pathak (Vice President of India), Jayaprakash Narayan, Acharya Tulsi, Dr. Sushila Nayar, Indira Gandhi and others met him and held conversations on diverse topics.
The book presents in English translation some of these conversations held between November 1969 and 1971. An important conversation of Smt. Indira Gandhi with Baba of January 1974 is also included.
It is hoped that these selected conversations covering a rich diversity of issues and personalities will be welcomed by all those interested in the historical and moral aspects of Indian life."
