This book by Shri R.G. Desai is a welcome addition to the growing literature on "Geeta". However, it is not a book exclusively on Geeta. It contains more of the thoughts and views of the writer on how to lead a good and purposeful life. There are also a few lines on Jesus on the Cross. Desai has quoted from Gandhiji's life, too. He has given examples from the life of Shivaji and even that of Aurangzeb. Geeta, however, remains the main inspiration for the author to articulate his views. It is a well-written book which draws copiously from the Geeta in simple language for the benefit of the people engaged in different walks of life.
