Jagdish Bhai Shah

On 15th August 1953, nineteen-year old Jagdish Shah decides to leave home. Every night, for the last month, tears have been rolling down his eyes. While it didn’t make sense to leave his parents, his promising medical career given his first rank in school, or the inevitable discomforts of a life on the “streets”, he knows he wants to do something deeply meaningful. “What’s the point of just living and dying? I want to do something for mankind, I want to serve,”. Jagdishbhai says to himself. He met Vinoba Bhave and his life was never the same again. A full life of cultivation, a life time of not owning anything, not having any money, and not asking for anything. For Jagdishbhai Shah, life is an experiment in grace.
