Prof. Bakshi, a psychologist, is working on a robot SAMA that can communicate like humans, rather it is being developed to develop better communication skills in humans who speak different languages. Kritika, a software engineer is assisting him to program that robot. She has been going through rough times with his father. While working on SAMA with Dr. Bakshi, she manages to resolve some of her personal issues too.
Here are some of the key points of the book.
😍 A self-help book in the form of a story is always a great idea as stories have greater appeal among masses.
😍Surroundings make a profound effect on communication. A calm, serene and happy surroundings leads to a better communication.
😍It is important to build a relationship with oneself to have better relationships with others. Your happiness lies within you.
😍The language of the book is simple and effective, making it appealing to most of the readers.
😍Cover could have been better, however title makes it an instant pick as everyone needs to learn this skill.
Overall, this short, light read offers many more life lessons along with ways to develop the speaking skills.
Now as I talk about the plot, I want to point out that it is just my personal opinion. For me, a male doctor with a female assistant just sounds too clichè and on the top of that, his assistant was described at the start of the book as someone who by luck got the chance to work on this project with him, like she didn't have any merits or capabilities to earn that position. Her capabilities and merits were described later, though, that start just got stucked and that's why the character designing didn't settle well with me. And It is just a 40-pages short book that can be completed in a single sitting. The writing style is readers friendly, easy going and the flow of the story is smooth. Overall, it was a really nice read.
It is only because of communication that we are able to stand out amongst others in our respective field of work.
So knowing how important communication is, this book definitely acts as a guide in helping for the same and emphasizes on its need.
Coming to the story of the book, it revolves around a professor and his assistant who are tasked with building a Humanoid Robot, SAMA. We humans have engaged ourselves so much in this constant competition that we have forgotten to act upon our true nature. Dr Bakshi feels like if he could bring out the emotions in a non-living thing, then it might be able to save the human race as well since it may force them to break down the thick walls that they have put around themselves.
The book was a very clever way of making us understand how times have changed over the years, how we humans are being distant, and how communication will play a crucial part in solving this problem.
