In this continuation of Batti’s reminiscences of sadhaks from the early years who have since passed away, there are nineteen brief portraitures, each accompanied by a photograph that embellishes the author’s evocation of the person. Among the company are both well-known figures such as A. B. Purani, Udar, and Mona Sarkar as well as some equally admired but perhaps lesser-known disciples. All are treated with the author’s obvious affection and sense of humour. The title, inspired by Dilip Kumar Roy's book Among the Great, suggests how the achievements of these figures may not have been great in the conventional sense, but their utter devotion to Sri Aurobindo and the Mother and the moments of joy their memories evoke reveal that often true and lasting greatness lies in the profoundest simplicity and humility.

As the title of Dr Beloo Mehra’s book suggests, this collection of essays written over a period of time provides a bird’s-eye view of contemporary India in the light of Sri Aurobindo's thought. The essays capture current Indian mindsets on social and cultural issues confronting the country and emphasise the relevance of Sri Aurobindo's views on revitalising India in ways that will allow the nation to live out its essential characteristic, spirituality, in all walks of life. Dr Mehra stresses the importance that Sri Aurobindo placed on original thinking for a vibrant national life, affirming its power to add vigour and strength to the character of a people.
