5.0 out of 5 stars Ravishing, refreshing, relevant, reliable, & resilient
By Barun Ghosh on 2 August 2021
416 pages is hardly enough to encapsulate anybody's life, let alone the life of an avid writer and thinker like Vir Sanghvi.
From the vivid descriptions of his family life when he was a child to the sudden loss of his father, he makes us understand how overwhelming such a loss can be at a tender age especially when it has financial ramifications.
I don't think any celebrity in India will ever tell you in person nor will they ever publish how every time they took a new project on or a job, they thought about the financial incentives that comes along with it. We all think about it but no one ever writes about it except for Vir which makes him human like the rest of us.
From betrayal by friends to overwhelming help my strangers, Vir reminds us how our own lives are intertwined with tragedy and comedy.
Reading this book will make you reflect, think, laugh and perhaps even a bit sad for a while but such is life for the most of us which makes us all human and Vir simply embodies all that is good in life to enjoy and the bits that need to be accepted and then to rise above them.
I just hope in the following years as new editions of this book are printed, new chapters are added by Vir in his continuing saga of life in India.
