A book that offers the reader reﬂections on well-chosen topics with illustrations from real-life experiences of people and events. Well-versed in religion, psychology and the social sciences, the author, Joe Eruppakkatt, who has lived and worked in three of the world’s great metros, viz., Mumbai, New York and London, during the last twenty-five years, is a poet at heart. As such, this array of short but powerful capsules, the fruit of his personal observation of life’s events around the world, could be a source of inspiration to writers and speakers, teachers, students and business people, as also to politicians and social activists alike. They whet the appetite for freedom, happiness and peace of all who are ready to put aside self-love and are inclined to place their personal energies at the service of humanity. A timely stimulus for personal and social transformation, the crying need of the day, these reﬂections will help the reader not only to learn the lessons they teach, but also motivate them to look, observe, learn and act upon the events they encounter daily.
