What people really need and demand from life is not Wealth, Comfort and Fame but JOY, a state of mind of happiness which comes from waves of ups and downs, the challenges with sense of achievement. There has to be purpose of life, hope brings optimism. It makes the mind positive, a distressed mind causes misery and unhappiness, the cause is multiple, unrealistic desires which cause worry and distress. Fewer desires means less distress.
Laugh and the world laughs with you; Weep and you weep alone
Who doesn’t like their grandparents? The book reminded me of my late grandfather. Had he lived a little longer, he would have told me the same things author said in the book. Through years of experience and knowledge. The book covered practically every aspect of life a person will go through. The book is an account of what life is all about. About success, failure, challenges, achievement, emotions, etiquette, health, memory, money, worship, meditation etc. To save the best for the last, author has given a short note on his autobiography
Author tried to incorporate a lot of things in a single book, that none of the topics are explained in details. The book could have been concentrated on any single topic or divided into two or three volumes.
