Hello book lovers, your friend Sara here!
I love how you are all pouring in your write ups on your favourite books.
This book is all about Sudha Murthy-a great author’s experiences, what she has learnt from them and some popular folk tales.
It talks about her real-life incidents which are very inspiring. The book goes through her journey from childhood to adulthood, from her career (corporate) to a compassionate teacher to a critical thinker and from a wife to a mother.
It is a semi-autobiographical book with 25 beautiful and engaging stories which are motivating and inspiring. This book is recommended to children as well as adults. It has all the experiences, life values and learnings which a person should have at any age. It is a wonderful book which engages and makes the reader desire to read more and more.
All these stories have touched my heart. Each and every story has at least one life value or learning in them.
Elements such as learning has no age bar, teacher should be respected irrespective of age and gender, books are valuable, you should be caring, egoless, never disrespect people, there is always a start at any age, nothing is impossible, excellence comes by practice not by accident, donate the first best to anyone and not the second best, respect your grandparents, education is essential, always be kind with your guests, your motherland is always your heaven, the real jewellery is education, everything will perish over a period of time – flowers, beauty, food and many others.
She writes that no person looks beautiful forever. But education brings confidence to your face and that is the real beauty. Some other takeaways from the book are that if one man studies, only one person is educated whereas if one lady studies, the entire family is educated.
I rate this book 5/5 stars and recommend it to everyone above the age of 9.
