Lt Col RK Langar (Retd.) fought three major wars in 1962, 1965 and 1971. He devoted his post-Army life in pursuit of spiritual issues. He studied the Bhagavad Gita, the Vedanta and comparative religions to understand the underlying values that shape Indian personalities. These resulted in a book called Ascension containing articles on spiritual, religious, educational and social themes. Col Langar is greatly intrigued by the desperation of the younger generation to achieve cult status overnight.
The present book tries to look at some of these issues and provides inspiring logic to stand erect and start the struggle on firmer footing. For the last 18 years, Col Langar has been writing regularly in newspapers and journals on issues like spirituality, comparative religions and personality development. He conducts regular classes on spirituality and personality development.
