About the Book:
In her author’s note, Sawkar writes, “I had to preserve the stories of the sages for posterity. I grew up with them and am still living with them. Their life stories made me chuckle, laugh, ponder, grieve and marvel. I want my readers to experience this whole range of emotions…

The sages were the think tanks of the prevailing society. They were poets, authors, story-tellers, teachers, principals of schools, priests at kings’ courts and temples, scientists, judges, expounders of law and religion, ascetics and some even commanders of armies.

As a class they arose in the dawn of civilization and held sway over current society roughly till the end of the first millennium.”
