This book is a story of friendship between three remarkable individuals drawn from their lifelong work for India's freedom. They were Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi and the Anglican missionary, Charles Freer Andrews, who became a most loving friend to both Tagore and Gandhi. The universal principles they applied in attaining that goal have given us an alternative legacy. It is the legacy of a nationalism that worked with complete restraint, a legacy that cried halt to the movement whenever it turned violent, that proclaimed the way forward to be in self-suffering and not in hatred of the enemy.

Review:


" This captivating book is the first collection ever published of the letters Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, and Charles Andrews wrote to one another, turn by turn, over nearly 30 years. Each of these remarkable people speaks openly and freely to the two others- their very closest friends- about matters simultaneously of enormous political moment and intense personal importance." --Arvind Sivaramakrishnan, The Hindu


"I must congratulate the editor for a selection of letters which leads deep into the heart of India's struggle for political, social and emotional independence through the minds of three of modern India's greatest." --Martin Kämpchen, The Telegraph, Kolkata


"This book is the product of dedicated scholarship and historical grasp of a critical period of Indian history. It succeeds in its laudable exercise of bringing together the letters (1912-1940) that provide us an insight into the intermeshing public as well as private dialogues of three key figures, each in his own distinct way driven by the question of political, moral and spiritual dimensions of India's freedom... The author claims that 'there has been no work till now on the three correspondents together as in this volume.' Stated with characteristic humility, this is an absolute truth which sustains the originality of this work." --Shirshendu Chakravarti, Dehli


"a collection of love and longing, of fellowship and loneliness, of a quest for truth and beauty. And it is these qualities that draws us in to it, giving a timelessness and universality that even the most beauteous of non-cooperation cannot achieve." --Tridip Suhrid, The Indian Express


the three correspondents enable us to look at the Indian nationalist movement 'differently' and to find in them some of the seminal ideas that went into the making of the modern Indian nation. The volume is surely a collector's item." --Somdatta Mandal, The Statesman
