In this summary of Who Will Cry When You Die? by Robin Sharma,In this book summary you’ll learn:

what the Romans thought about exercise;
how to make your commute more productive; and
precisely how many more hours you’ll live because of exercise.

It is the Robin’s first book that I have read, and I must say that I have fallen in love with his ideas and the way of life. The book is full of teaching about “the right way to lead a good life”. The book represents the content to us in a list like format, rather than depicting it in a story format or in a complicated manner. It is easy to understand, simple but more powr-ful. It is like Check-List, to make an interesting read.

I think this is the best book I have ever read. In a way it gives so many good advices. After reading and also while reading this book I pulled myself together and became more and more interested. It inspired me to wake up earlier in the mornings, to think more positive, etc. While reading this book, I wrote down some notes, and after finishing reading this book, I continued to read my notes over and over again. I really recommend this book if you need a little push to make some things change in yourself-because it has this amazing power to make you change.

It really makes me think a lot after reading this book. It is just like asking me whether am I living my life for some purpose and doing the right thing. It really helps me to understand the views in the future. Opens your mind! It helps to understand the differences between surviving, staying and living.

Some of the important points I learnt and follow from the book are :

• Be more than your moods. Your success range should never depend on your mood.
• Carry a goal card. Write your goals on some cards and always carry in your shirt pocket. Keep them literally close to your heart. It really helps you in achieving them faster.
• Stop Complaining. Start Living. Add value to yourself and to your society.
• Enjoy the path, not just reward. Write a legacy statement, which would be read by the next generations.
• Honor your past. Treat your troubles as blessings.
• Reading a book is a good habit. Reading good books is a better habit.
The book is all about living the life meaningfully. It gives advice that would surely give one a new way of approaching life. It contains a great many lessons for us all to practice in life. It mainly focuses on how to lead a prosperous life. It reminds what we are losing in our life. Each lesson is a lesson for life. It teaches us to start enjoying for all the things, even though they are small things in life.

After going through the entire 101 lessons, I got inspired to start living in a different and a better way. All 101 lessons hold equal significance in our day to day life though, especially ‘Learn to say No Gracefully’, ‘Learn to be Silent’, ‘Focus on the Worthy’, ‘Always carry a Book with you’ and more. Another point , which I liked very much in this book, is one I have been practicing for some time; I actually started practicing a few of them to start with, so there will be balance, effectiveness in my daily lives. There is no doubt in that.

It gives solutions to some questions….

 Discover Your Mission
 Every Day, Be Kind/Gentle to a Stranger
 Maintain Your Perspective
 Practice Tough Love
 Keep a Journal
 Develop an Honesty Philosophy
 Honor Your Past
 Start Your Day Well
 Learn to Say No Gracefully
 Take a Weekly Sabbatical
 Talk to yourself
 Schedules worry breaks
 Model a Child
 Remember, Genius is 99% Inspirations
 Care for the Temple
 Learn to Be Silent



This book is really worth reading! Everything explained in the book is true. The book

Probably would have more of a common solution, especially to the people who have a very

Hectic life style and have a  routine work. This book mainly for Lessons for Life.

Best Quote Of this book :

* “I wept because I had no shoes until I saw a man who had no feet.”
* “Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it,”
“How high you will rise in your life will be determined not by how hard you work but by how well you think.”
“Kindness, quite simply, is the rent we must pay for the space we occupy on this planet.” 

So here we finished...
You can comment me whatever else you want me to add in this blog,, i'll appreciate your thoughts, view and comments..

Thank You..!!!!!

Book Review Of Shashi Tharoor: Why I Am A Hindu? | Must Read a Book tell us difference the between Hinduism and Hindutva

Hello Everyone,
                         Today I'm going to talk about the person who himself a genius and need not to introduce. A single man with lots of work.,Dr. Shashi Tharoor is an Indian Politician, writer, speaker and former International Diplomat..Shashi Tharoor is serving as a Member of Parliament from Thiruvanantpuram, Kerala since 2009.

BJP Built The Most Extraordinary Personality Cult Around Modi ...

Dr. Shashi Tharoor is an eloquent speaker and has participated in many debated across all over the countries, As well as he has written about 18 books till now. And Among 18, I'll talk about "Why I Am A Hindu?"

Buy Why I Am a Hindu Book Online at Low Prices in India | Why I Am ...

So basically this book is divided into Three Parts:
(i)My Hinduism
(ii)Political Hinduism
(iii)Taking Back Hinduism

Ganga Aarti Haridwar | Ganga Aarti timings, photos, address

Firstly, Dr. Tharoor describes that he written this book for two main reasons. The first was to try and understand for himself, and for whoever else was interested, the extraordinary faith wisdom and virtues of faith he has lived for over six decades, a faith that he has tried to absorb through beliefs and practices handed down to him by his Father and others, his own observations, as well as an-extensive reading of the scriptures in translation and numerous scholarly treatise.

The second reason he wrote this book to show that the intolerant and often violent forms of Hindutva that began to impose themselves on the public consciousness of Indians in the 1980s went against the spirit of Hinduism, that most plural, inclusive, eclectic and expansive of faiths.

The Book is telling the actual difference between Hinduism And Hindutva. The Concerns in the book is actually for those who knows Dr. tharoor's writing, have been around for quite sometime the Great Indian Novel now 31 years old and its concerned the Dharma was explicit in his novel write and he spokes about some detail about Hindu-Muslim violence and accompanied the Ramshila-Pujan and so on before the rise of RamJanma Bhoomi movement.

Dr. Tharoor's alluded to his own Hinduism, Five years after the destruction of Babri Masjid. These are all concerns that he has expressed in different ways in both fiction and Non-Fiction in his writing.
According to Dr. Tharoor, If we look at Hinduism as a faith and then look at Hindutva, the later it is politically Ideology that is essentially is well described as a religion.

Somehow, on the backs of Hindutva Political Ideology, one is found whole bunch of people arrogating them to themselves, the rights to tell of others and there he thoughts to fight backs and push back to against it. And the useful things an an intellectual exercise was to do so within the faith because it suits the interest of Hindutva brigade to portray this fundamental argument as being one between Hindus and Godless secularist. Well Infact there is a more fundamental argument between Hinduism itself which he described in faith (Tharoor's faith)  and Dr. Tharoor has his own views and it is not the view of Hindutva Brigade.

This book contains many lines which is from Rig vedas and Bhagwat Geeta and some sloks in Sanskrit which also translated into English as well. The book start with great souls of Hinduism and the lecture of Swami Vivekanand and Adi Shankara was not merely a philosophical thinker who reconciled the doctrines and traditions of the ancients with a robust interpretation for the future.

Book also describing how both Jainism and Buddhism is related to Hinduism and how it become the form of Hinduism. And also book is railing the condition of India at the time of Muslim invaders like Chengiz khan, Mahumud of Ghazni and Mohd. Ghori , they all looted the temple like Somnath temple, Virandavan Shri-Krishna Janm Bhumi temple and abducted many Hindu women's.

The impact of Muslim invasions, and the proclivity of some Muslims warlords to attack temple for their treasures and demolish them in the process, as well as the inclination of some conquered people to adopt the religion of their conqueror, made the needs for renewal and revivcal of Hidu faith all the more urgent after the 11th century, when Ghazni's success had rung the alarm bells.

Whereas book also containing the bhakti movement of the people of different religion like Ramanuja, Kabir Das, Tulsi Das, Mira Bai, Lalleshwari(Lalla Rukh) and Blind Surdas. Here Dr. Tharoor tries to explained us that if we had trust in God then he'll never let us fail.
As Mirabai has immense believe in God Krishna her husband tried to poision her, but miraculously the poision turned into honey as she drank it, and she danced in ecstasy before her adored lord. As one of her hymns declares with the sense of abandonment ans ecstatic devotion for which she is known: Tying anklets upon her feet, Mira dances in Ecstasy. People say Mira has gone mad.
Her Mother-in-law says she disgraced the clan, The Rana(Mirabai's Husband) sent her a cup of poison, which Mira laughingly, drank. And nothing happened to her. This is belief, this is faith..

The Book also deals with the thoughts of Raja Ram Mohan Roy, who founded the Brahmo-Samaj and after him a dynamic Hindu sage, Swami Dayanand Saraswati established the Arya-Samaj.

Hinduism not just a religion, but the very way of life worth emulating. Briefly delving on the probable origins of Hinduism, the challenges it faced all along its many millennia-old existence, the ways in which it overcame those challenges and the innumerable saints and holy personae that stand as shining beacons for all the virtues that Hinduism is all about. Ironically, Mr. Tharoor makes you feel proud about being Hindu, more than all the antics and assertions of the so-called saviors of the ‘Hindutva’ brigade.

I loved the first part of the book. It is well researched and various references quoted really brought out my beliefs in a new light, the way I was taught about them and how it seemed to be confided in today.
The basic quality of the book is that it maintained its neutralism without taking sides. Hinduism could be talked more as a culture than as a religion is a conclusion I reach as I flipped pages ahead.
Freedom of belief and excising faith is duly a personal call and contributing factors could be the land you are born in and the household you are brought up but how you approach to the divine is a connection and a journey taken by you.
I could resonate with most of the thoughts presented in the book and also could appreciate many of the references made of different beliefs.

Whereas, the second part of the book are used by politician Shashi Tharoor, who uses it as a canvas to paint a poor – many times, correctly so – picture about his political opponents, especially those belonging to the Hindutva brigade. Starting from the patriarchs of RSS, Golwalkar and Savarkar, who used hatred for another religion to fuel the passion for their own, touching upon the somewhat sensible life of Deen Dayal Upadhyay, to the present day leaders of BJP, who rode upon paranoia and hatred of a huge scale to attain their political gains, Shashi Tharoor has ‘immortalized’ everyone with his systematic arguments against their narrow ideologies, setting them against the all-encompassing backdrop of Hinduism.

As he strongly condemned BJP in his book and told that BJP's priciples is provoking and evoking the people in the wrong way. As he mentioned the riots of Gujarat (2002), after that riots BJP's then Prime Minister Atal Vihari Vajpayee was going to ask a resignation from Narendra Modi, but due to Sangh, he didn't found himself able to do so..And Narendra Modi got another chance in 2007 and 2012 in Giujarat and he became the Chief Minister of Gujarat with full majority.. And Later on he played the trump card of Hindutva for 2014 lok-sabha election and Modi-wave came and all India supported BJP and first time in a history of lok-sabha a ruling party has no muslim MP's in a parliament.

Dr. Sahshi Tharoor also condemning the thoughts of Yogi Adityanath and described him thinking as a small and fallen. As Yogi Adityanath made Anti-Romeo squad and called Taj-Mahal against the Hindu-Civilization.

What it is hard to believe is that people claiming to be abiding by the values of a religion fail to realize the lines between segments of their beliefs toe in with secularist, to not be allied with any particular religion or spiritual matters.

Overall, it is good to see the big picture of both sides and get different perspectives about how one can perceive Hinduism and Hindutva. Also, one can put distinction to a Hindu Communist and a Hindu who is also a Communist.

Conclusion :

*As a Hindu, I can say when people tell me 'Garv Se Kaho Ki Tum Hindu Ho' that I am proud to be Hindu, but in what is it that we are to take pride? I take pride in the openness, the diversity, the range, the lofty metaphysical aspirations of the Vedanta; of the various ways in which Hinduism is practised, eclectically, and of its extraordinary acceptance of differences.

*I am a Hindu , and I am Nationalist, bit I am not a Hindu nationalist. My nationalism is unquestioningly, all-embracingly, Indian.

*Survival is the best revenge, rather than reprisal; undoing the wrongs in different era through new wrongs in a different context only compound the original sins.

*The Hinduism that I know understands that faith is a matter of hearts and minds, not bricks and stones. "Build Ram in your hearts" is what Hinduism has always enjoined: If Ram is in your heart, it would matter very little where else He is, or is not.

*I feel that it is alright to think that Hinduism as a way of life is great but it’s not alright to think that only Hinduism ‘as we understand it’ is superior to any other way of life. It is very important now, more than it ever was, to disconnect Hindutva, the political ideology, from Hinduism, which is a way of life.

So here we finished the review of Shashi Taroor's book (Why I Am a Hindu)..I hope it will help you to know the difference between Hindutva and Hinduism.

REVIEW of Dr. Kalam's Book : My Journey- Transforming Dreams Into Action|The Missile Man| The people's President

     There are so many people in the world, some of them become great by their actions, principles and discipline. It took a time a time to become a great person and for that you have to make constant efforts like APJ Abdul Kalam did. Dr. Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, not only having a long name but also a long legacy.

Today I'm going to make reviews on his written book (My journey-Transforming Dreams Into Action). Which is written by himself Dr. Kalam.
I'm gonna tell you, his life in details after reading book (My journey), Which extremely impressed me a lot..

*Initially Dr. Kalam tells us about him in first page, which stated as..He was born on 15 October, 1931 at Rameswaram. Born in Tamil-Muslim family, who barely had two meals a day. Dr. Kalam's father was an Imam at Rameswaram Mosque and he also had a boat  which took the Hindu people back from Rameswaram to Dhanuskoti and Dhanuskoti to Rameswarm. And his mother Ashiamma was a house wife.

* As born in Muslim Family, his father gave him all rites and sent him school to study. He also mentioned that as Ramnathswamy temple was only few steps away from his home and the priest of Ramnathswamy temple, Pakshi Lakshmana Sastry was not only the priest of that temple was also has very deep knowledge about his Vedic Culture, his father and Sastry ji was a good friend

*Kalam also has a deep knowledge of Koran,Vedas, Gita, Holy Bible..He reads all of these and you'll find some shlokas and verses in his book which is written in Gita, Bible and Koran.As he was a true secular.

* Dr. Kalam describe one incident that took place in his childhood when he was in third standards at the age of 8. His best friends Ramanadhan Shastry , Aravindan and Sivaprakasan. All of them were Brahmin's , In fact Ramanadhan was the son of Shastry ji. They all live together during the all time of school and sit together on one bench in front row.

One day, they all were very curious about their new teacher in school. And when the teacher came, he saw a in front row one-muslim boy with his skull cap on his head sitting with some brahmin's  boy.
At that very moment Kalam was asked to leave that seat and go back to last row. At that time Kalam and his best Ramanadhan both cried whole day and told their father's about what teacher did to them?

*Immediately their parents visits to school and condemned the incident harshly in front of whole school and asked the teacher "how did you become a teacher? A man who discriminating the society, how can he become a teacher? Then finally teacher realizes his mistakes and apologize for what he had done to their child.

A.P.J. Abdul Kalam: Biography, Books, Quotes and Awards

*In his book Kalam wrote that his father used to wake up at 4 am. When all people sleeps my father wakes up at 4 and go to his morning walk and take a look to mosque, because he was very devote and sharing immense faith in God.

*One Incident that Dr. Kalam wrote in his auto-biography and which is very close and touched my heart was "On one night when Kalam was hungry and he asked for food to his mother and his mother made a chapatti and he ate all chapatties and nothing left for her mother to eat, and then his elder brother scolded on him and said (you have eaten all chapatties and that's why our mother having nothing to eat and tonight she'll go hungry) then Kalam realizes that "a mother is the one who can give everything to her child without thinking for a moment." That night Kalam was full of guilt and he feels the shame to face his mother.

*When Kalam was 8 years old he did the job of selling Newspaper, as his family condition was not well enough to survive. For further studies Dr. Kalam went to Ramnathpuram and got admission in Schwartz Higher Secondary School. For a first time Kalam goes outside of Raeswaram. And over their he completed his Higher Secondary level Education.

*For further education Dr. Kalam went to Madras Institute Of Technology(MIT) to pursue the education in Engineering. To get admission in MIT he needs the sum of 600 rupees at that time, but as his family condition was not such as he could ask for money from the family.

Madras Institute Of Technology

* Then his sister Zohra arranged the money for him by mortgaging her jewelry and give him money to get admission at MIT. At that time Kalam stated  "Nobody in the world has ever done such a selfless thing for me" that directly touches the heart of mine.

*In this book Kalam also mentioned about his two mentors- Ahmed Jalalludin & Dr. Vikram Sarabhai. 

As Jalalludin was his brother-in-law who always motivates him towards study and gives him some remarkable lesson for his life. When Kalam was leaving for USA for six months training programme at NASA. Jalalludin came to drop him at Mumbai Airport where Kalam was overcome by his sentiments and his love for them and tears filled his eyes. Then Jalalludin said- "Abdul, we have always loved you, and we believe in you. We shall be always proud of you."

Remembering Vikram Sarabhai in his birth centenary year | Eye News ...
Dr. Vikram Srarabhai was his second mentor of his life. Kalam met him first at when he was called for interview by INCOSPAR for the position of Rocket Engineer. Kalam was interviewed by Dr. Sarabhai, who was deputy secretary of the Atomic Energy Commission. This interview set the tone for Kalam's future relationship with Dr. Sarabhai. Kalam stated that "Dr. Sarabhai was  a legend and has the quality of leadership and he was able to see and pick the potential of youth and give them his guidance. Inside Kalam feels that there is a man who was not recruiting just an Engineer, rather he was looking for kalam's potential and investing his time and career in him." 

*Kalam wrote about his failures too. As he wants to join Indian Airforce and for that he gave an interview at Dehradun and not selected as their was only 8 places were vacant and Kalam got 9th position. After facing disappointment Kalam was very upset and don't want to live in his hotel room, so he decided to go outside for a walk and he reached to the edge of cliff over there he decided to go to Rishikesh.
In Rishikesh , he took a dip in Ganga  and after that he visited to Sivananada Ashram that was locted little way up a hill. As Kalam entered in ashram he saw all sages and monks were seated all around and some in deep meditation.

*Kalam mentioned that His being Muslim doesn't affect those sages and monks and he gets all his answers of worries by sivananda himself. Sivananda explained- "Accept your destiny and go ahead with your life, You are not destined to become an Airforce pilot. What you are destined to become is not revealed now but it is predetermined. Forget this failure, as it was essential to lead you to your destined path. Search instead for the true purpose of your existence.."

Be quenched in Reason,s night,

Till what is wrong be right.!
