This book tells the stories of social justice warriors who are quietly powering the country's progress by being agents of real change. Words Mahatma Gandhi lived by-such as 'India lives in villages and to serve the poor we will have to serve in the villages' or that 'truth may get troubled but it never gets defeated'-are their moral compass. They have shown by personal example how adopting Bapu's ideology as a way of life can be personally enriching and socially beneficial.
The people in this book mostly work away from the spotlight. Through entirely Gandhian ways, they have proved that his methods, such as satyagraha, still help effect real change and progress for the people most in need. Many have won awards and recognition, but largely their stirring stories have remained untold-a gap thatÂ Being the ChangeÂ seeks to fill.
