નવા વર્ષની શુભેચ્છાઓ! આજે જે પત્ર રજૂ કરું છું એ પત્રવ્યવહાર શરૂ થયા પછીનો પહેલો કે બીજો જ પત્ર હશે. એઓના પુસ્તકો, જીવનકથા વાંચીને મને ઉદ્ભવેલા કેટલાક પ્રશ્રોનો જવાબ અહીં આપવામાં આવ્યો છે. વાત તો સાવ ટૂંકી ને ટચ જ છે પણ સમગ્ર જીવન જીવવાની ફિલોસોફીનો નિચોડ અહીં છે અને નવા વર્ષે આનાથી સારું મનન-ચિંતનનું…
