This book is a compilation of the life-sketches of 50 ordinary and not so ordinary persons from around the world, most of them unknown individuals, who have shed their ego and radiate their splendour by leading a meaningful life of compassionate service to others. These are people who deserve an ovation for their exemplary contribution to society—people we can well choose as our role models precisely because they have shown us how we can make a difference to the world around us. Narrated in a simple, straightforward and interesting style, these real-life stories,
taken from various sources, offer us examples that inspire us to radiate the light within us and become blessings to others. Everlasting freshness being the hallmark of these stories, the values they teach us are aptly summarized in a meaningful quote at the end of each chapter.
