  • Usually Delivered in 2-3 business days.
  • Delivery times may be longer than usual due to festive demand

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Available'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Out of Stock'

Currently, the item is not available for sale. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know once it is available for purchase.

'Imported'

Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

'Back In Stock Soon'

The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

'Temporarily Unavailable'

The product is currently out of stock and is not available for purchase. The product could to be in stock soon. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know when it is available for purchase.

'Permanently Discontinued'

This product is no longer available because it is obsolete and/or its production has been discontinued.

'Out of Print'

This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

3 Lives, in search of bliss (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 185

3 Lives, in search of bliss is an inspirational fable of a New York city cab driver who, upon his unfortunate and sudden death, finds himself being offered three chances at redemption and finding happiness. The book is about the 3 lives he leads, the choices he makes in those lives and attainment of eternal wisdom and bliss.

After his death, Ray is offered three lives, each designed out of his choices, to find happiness. What starts as a journey towards wealth, health and knowledge turns into a discovery of eternal wisdom, and ultimately leads to bliss.
Exotic, evocative and haunting, the tale of Ray Cordoza’s three lives will make you ponder the choices that you make in your own life towards the pursuit of happiness.

The book is a celebration of the beauty of this wonderful universe and our lives as human beings. It falls into the genre of spiritual fiction - a format in which a fictional narrative is interlaced with philosophical and spiritual concepts. It could also (easily) be categorized as inspirational, self-help and motivational, depending on the perspective of the reader.

3 Lives is a product of inspired passion which aims to present eastern and western spiritual concepts in a manner that demonstrates the one-ness of everything in this world that we find ourselves in. That we all share the same fears, desires and aspirations. And, that we all have the same questions. That we share, at a fundamentally spiritual level, a deep and abiding desire to find and hold onto happiness.

Whether you're looking to be inspired or to comprehend the seemingly incomprehensible pain and disappointments that come our way in life,  this short novella is bound to leave a deep and lasting impression on you. Happy journeys!

Srini Chandra was born in the city formerly known as Madras in India in 1968, where he learned to play the violin and studied French from the Alliance Francaise. He received a bachelors degree in engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, where he played on the basketball, cricket and athletics teams, captained volleyball and served as a 3-term student senator. His academic qualifications include masters degrees from Ohio State University and Carnegie Mellon University, where he was awarded the prestigious Heinz Fellowship.

After over a dozen years of of study, work and life in the United States, and a stint in Singapore, he moved back to India and is now settled in Bangalore. Srinis professional career spans two decades in global leadership roles in general management and marketing at some of the worlds leading high technology companies.

Srini is a student of philosophy, science and spirituality. His travels have taken him to over forty countries around the world (including a motorcycle trek up the worlds highest motorable road) and have served to reaffirm his abiding belief in the one-ness of all things. He lives in Bangalore, India with his lovely wife and two daughters. 3 Lives, in search of bliss is his first published literary work.

Never had I gone back to read a book again as soon as I finished it first time.

If you read one book, do yourself a favor and make it "Three Lives"



To properly review this story, I have to tell the story of my reading. When I first started this book, I didn't think it would change my life. In fact, I would even say I was unimpressed. The first two paragraphs of the book are very negative and certainly aren't like anything I would normally read.

However, I don't like to leave things unfinished, especially books, so I kept going. And I am so happy that I did. I mentioned before that I didn't think this book would CHANGE MY LIFE - but it did. The story line woke me up and I hadn't even realized that my soul had been …

'Un-put-downable'!

Srini exhibits a great talent to explain concepts and create healthy inquiry within the reader's mind, in an effortless manner. 3 lives is an easy-flowing insightful book with a well-balanced mixture of story, humour and wisdom.

It was refreshing to read a book that does not seek to impose the author's opinions onto the reader and instead encourages the reader to think on her own and draw her own conclusions.

Would recommend this book to anyone who is curious about what happiness and life is about. Delightful and 'un-put-downable'.

Loved it...

There are some (rather, very rare) experiences in life, which compels you to exclaim -"Wow, that was amazing...".

Well friends, i had exactly this experience when i read this book.

The experience of reading the book was simply mind-blowing... A plethora of thoughts evoked and i felt a perfect mixture of patheticity and ecstasy getting evoked within myself.

Every page gave me peace, the most elusive thing in this world.

Please read it, because it connects us with our 'true self'...

Thank you Mr. Srini, for producing such a master piece...

Truth revealed

After reading the book i can say that the author is showing the other dimension of life. what the society is trying to make you understand about life for thousands of years, he highlighted the essence of it which helped me to understand and realize how simple is life and what i have to do. this my personal feeling.

A gem of a book !

Friendship comes in many forms. I stumbled upon Srini Chandra on Twitter. I haven't spoken to him or met him in person. It is not often that someone comes up with a stunner like "3 Lives". What a debut! It is said first impression is the best impression - the cover of the book is stunning. As regards the content, I must say it is on par with "Siddhartha" by Herman Hesse. many many years ago when was I was young, I stumbled upon "Siddhartha" in a dusty corner of a lending library. It was a turning point in my life. That book left a deep impact on me. Now, several years later, destiny has thrown…

Bliss in paperback

How do you express an opinion, without being opinionated? How do you talk of morals without being moralistic? How can you discuss philosophy without being doctrinaire? 3 Lives does that, by tracing the journey of a soul across different lives, different epochs, different civilizations. In a style that is direct and simple, the narrative stirs the deepest cords that connect us all. Must read... and re-read.

All is well

When I started reading the book, it drew me in effortlessly. I finished reading the book in one go, from start to finish, in a couple of hours. It is an excellent read, and left me with a sense of "all is well" at the end of it. The book does a great job of taking on the big questions without taking sides. Questions like - What is happiness? How do I find it? Why is life unfair? etc. I especially liked the portions where the author brings out the struggle between science and spirituality. Is logic superior to emotion? Can atheists be happy? To some one in the middle like me, in the no man's la…

Lucid Philosophical treatise on a fictional canvas

Perhaps this is one of the rarest attempts of an author, that too in his maiden venture, to beautifully blend seamlessly, Eastern Philosophy and Western Thought, and that on a fictional canvas. No where one finds traces of Hindu Philosophy and the author most successfully achieves, avoiding the inescapable pitfalls of imposing such thoughts on the hapless readers.This bold attempt portrays the evolution of the human soul almost akin to Darwinian Evolution of the Species. Flipkart is niggardly in tying my hands to award only an insignificant and meagre 5 stars for this wonderful philosophical t…

3Lives,in search of bliss by Srini Chandra

Ray Cordoza's evolution through the three lives is beautifully told in this book with sustaining interest throughout.Hatred to become love may take a split second or an eternity.Likewise,awakening of a soul.The essential message I got from this book is that "life is not a problem to be solved,but a reality to be experienced".How true are these words.The author says whom it will touch,he may not know.It has touched me.Let go.Take control.If one wants happiness,it is in the giving up of chase.Everyone is headed towards haapiness.It is inevitable.The question is 'how many lives it takes'.
