Sister Nivedita-A Passion for India is the inspiring and poignant story of a woman who fell in love with India, and served it and its people with dedication. Born Margaret Nobel in Northern Ireland, Sister Nivedita's journey of self-discovery began as a committed, though sometimes rebellious disciple of Swami Vivekananda. She followed him from London to India where she contributed immensely towards the freedom struggle, female education, awakening of arts and sciences and in instilling pride in the country's spirituality and inherent values. The hallmark of her personality was her simplicity and ability to bond with the common masses of the country, which she served till her last breath. The book is a vivid portrayal of this charismatic persona who played a significant role in India's history.

Sohinee Roy is a postgraduate in English Literature from Jadavpur University. After a brief stint as a copy editor at the Times of India, she is now pursuing her PhD in English literature at West Virginia University.

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption on our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is a part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.

- Mahatma Gandhi.
