Thirty-Four years after Mahatma Gandhi's martyrdom in January 1948, his life-long Secretary and Biographer Pyarelal passed away in October 1982. In an editorial obituary, one of the national newspapers of India recorded the sad event as “passing away of Gandhi's Boswell".
This volume is the collection of tributes that were paid to Pyarelal by friends, colleagues and admirers soon after he passed away in 1982. These were planned to be published, along with a short biography of Pyarelal by his sister Dr. Sushila Nayar, in the form of a memorial volume.
Due to unforeseen circumstances however the planned memorial volume remained unpublished for all these long and many years. At the initiative of D.C. Jha, the compiler and the editor of this book, it was published in 2012 by the National Gandhi Museum.
