As she goes about her work with the villagers, slum dwellers and the common men and women of India, Sudha Murty-writer, social worker and teacher-listens to them and records what they have to say. Their accounts of the struggles and hardships which they have at times overcome, and at other times been overwhelmed by, are put together in this book. There are stories about people’s generosity-and selfishness-in times of natural disasters like the tsunami; women struggling to speak out in a world that refuses to listen to them; and tales of young professionals trying to find their feet as they climb up the corporate ladder. Told simply and directly from the heart, The Old Man and His God is a collection of snapshots of the varied facets of human nature and a mirror to the souls of the people of India. 


Great book and highly recommended. Sudha Murty, an author, social worker, and teacher, works with the villages, slum residents, and common men and women of India. She listens to them while she works and writes down what they have to say. This book compiles their accounts of the trials and sufferings that they have occasionally overcome and occasionally been overcome by. Women struggle to speak out in a world that won't listen to them; young professionals striving to find their footing as they ascend the corporate ladder; and tales of people's generosity—and selfishness—in the face of natural calamities like the tsunami. The Old Man and His God is a collection of moments from the author's life, told simply and from the heart.
