This book is an epistolary account of the lives of three remarkable individuals. They were Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi and the Anglican missionary, Charles Freer Andrews. The study explores two closely related themes, their friendship and their principles for attaining Indian freedom. The freedom they worked for was not merely political though in an unequal world that necessarily had to be an ultimate goal.
