Dr.BindeshwarPathak is a great humanist and social reformer of contemporary India. To the weaker sections of society especially, he is the compassionate face of a paternal redeemer. He has the vision of a philosopher and the undying zeal of a missionary. Dr.Pathak will be remembered in history for his innovative strides in the field of sanitation as well as social reform. With his efforts erstwhile untouchables have been allowed by the society to intermingle with them and to live on par, dining with them and being allowed to offer prayers in the temples. He has created a new culture which embraces the poor and extols the dignity of labour. In a first-of-its-kind this book traces the journey of BindeshwarPathak, who, from being a Brahmin boy of a conservative family from a small town in Bihar has come far to become an icon of sanitation and social reform who has made a difference in the lives of millions of people.
