 About the Book 

How did an Indian village boy who loved climbing trees, playing with his pet monkeys and dogs, roaming in the jungle and sitting in on cases being conducted in the High Court, grow up to be one of the most beloved spiritual Masters of the modern era?MoreHow did an Indian village boy who loved climbing trees, playing with his pet monkeys and dogs, roaming in the jungle and sitting in on cases being conducted in the High Court, grow up to be one of the most beloved spiritual Masters of the modern era?In this series of essays, the writer recreates many scenes from Sri Chinmoys carefree childhood years when he was known as Madal - the kettledrum - including some dramatic moments when he seemed to face certain death and was saved by some stroke of divine intervention.The writer also pays tribute to Hriday, Madals eldest brother, who left the family circle at a tender age to join an Ashram in the south of India, thousands of miles away. Following the deaths of Madals parents, Hriday would bring all his brothers and sisters out of the war-torn region to join him in that sanctified abode.Madal was only twelve when he left his little village and all his childhood pastimes behind to immerse himself in a life of prayer and meditation.
