Kailas Jhaveri was brought up and educated in Bombay. She first visited Pondicherry on 9th December 1950 when Sri Aurobindo's material envelope was interred in the Samadhi. In 1954 she went to the USA for further studies. There she worked at the United Nations. After it was revealed to her that human unity could be realised only on the spiritual foundation, she left the UN.
In 1964 she came to Pondicherry and has lived at the Ashram ever since. This book is a chronicle of the events and the Mother's and Sri Aurobindo's active help in her life.
The title of this book of reminiscences is taken from a letter of the Mother to Kailasben.
