These stories are so memorable, that they linger long in our hearts, allowing us to internalize the message or the value that he has so creatively put across to us!
In this book, we bring together 100 stories chosen from his recent talks and books, neatly packaged with Rev. Dada’s thoughts offered for your reflection, and his trademark practical exercises in the form of tips for you to follow!
Happy reading-and happy reflections!”
When I started reading this book, I hadn’t thought that this book would work this much well for me, as my experiences with short stories is not that much good and I’m not much familiar with the writing of the author J P Vaswani. A 204 paged book consists of hundred short stories that very thing itself makes me to doubt on the content of the book, as how well the stories would be able to communicate when they are only two pages long? All these questions and doubt came to a halt, when I discover the beauty of each and every story penned in this book.
Every story though very small in length has a great message to tell to readers, has a lesson to learn from. Humorous stories are interwoven in this book and are blended with intelligent lessons to filter reader’s mind. Some of the stories you might have heard before, but when the complete dosage of hundred stories being served together, it plays a new role altogether. Stories are simple in nature but the message they convey is magical.
Writing fashion is effective and friendly in nature and language used is moderate in nature. Narration and presentation of the story both works up to the mark. Nothing goes offbeat or irrelevant.Along with meaningful and inspirational stories you would a thought of some great thinkers below the story, and below it a practical tip is given as how to incorporate the learning and lessons it teaches and in order to make the message clearer and brighter.
No flaws at all or you could say I was not in a condition to count any flaw. Such a deep impact it made on me. A book that could lead your mind to peace.
A must read and highly RECOMMENDED to everyone out there!
