A compilation of essays spearheaded by late Rajni Patel's wife and former Sheriff, Bakul Patel, in tribute of the late barrister, through the lens of his comrades and associates, comprises personal accounts of a host of public figures.
"The book is full of insights, personal moments and life experiences of a man who selflessly served the nation. It gives us an understanding on his journey of success and sacrifices. I am ever so grateful to all of Rajni's close aides who has been generous enough to contribute to the book and giving shape to a project I had envisaged 5 years ago," Bakul Patel said in a statement.
With illustrations by R.K. Laxman and M.F. Hussain and a foreword by Mukherjee, the book will reminisce and chronicle the journey of the uncrowned king of Bombay and his immense contribution to polity and society.
Patel passed away on May 3, 1982, after spending his life serving people.
One of Patel's enduring contributions remains the Nehru Centre in Mumbai that has become an important landmark for the city. He was the man who conceived and executed this project as a tribute to his role model and India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.
