We read books to escape from the reality and enter into a world that we want to see. Books take us into a new world of possibilities; they inspire us, motivate us, and give us the courage to go against all odds and win them bravely. One such book has been authored by Ashutosh Mishra – Happiness Is All We Want.
Ashutosh is an MBA from XLRI Jamshedpur and a Mechanical Engineer from IIT Delhi. With an extensive experience in the corporate career for sixteen years, Ashutosh started to realize the importance of health and wellbeing. Based on his experiences over last couple of decades, he has developed a framework for comprehensive wellness with a fresh perspective, and has tried to share the secret with everyone through this book.
I agree that many of us do not really like the idea of reading, but believe me, this is not one of those stereotypical books preaching ways to leads a happy life. Instead the author has written it in such a beautiful manner that is sure to keep you glued to the last page of the book. Not only you would find the book insightful, but I am sure you would soon try to practice some of the techniques mentioned in the book to try it for yourself (like I did). It really works!
In today’s fast paced lives, we all are so engrossed in our corporate lives that we hardly get time for ourselves or our family. We keep running behind targets set for us in our offices, and this takes us away from ourselves. We seem to be so materialistically driven that we tend to have lost that emotional connect. There is a dire need to rekindle that emotional bond that actually makes us happy from within and keeps the problems at bay.
The book – Happiness Is All We want suggests that the source of peace and happiness is within us, if we know the secret. The book takes you through that secret that helps you unlock your fortune of eternal happiness, health and wellbeing. The book demonstrates not just one single technique, rather a combination of various tools that will help us on our way to happiness.
Apart from enlightening you with the secret, the author also demystifies various myths circulating around the notion of happiness. The author has quoted quite a few real life experiences of himself as well as other people whom he knows closely, and demonstrates the true meaning of being happy.
Released this year, the book is available at all leading e-commerce websites, at an approximate price of Rs 300-350.
