In Quest of the Last Victory (Paperback) Price: Rs.221

In Quest Of The Last Victory by Navin Gulia is an inspirational and motivational story of the author’s drive to the highest motorable mountain pass in the world despite being paralysed.

Summary Of The Book

In Quest Of The Last Victory is a story of one man’s struggle against immense physical disabilities on way towards reaching his goal. Navin Gulia shares inspirational stories of his own life and struggles to overcome his own physical limitations. In Quest Of The Last Victory looks at the author’s unceasing efforts to accomplish his own goals and ambitions. Navin Gulia held on to his own aspirations and dreams in spite of being totally paralyzed. He transformed his disability into a much greater and higher force. This force propelled him towards greatness and drove him towards fulfillment of his desires. The book shows Gulia’s strenuous efforts towards success and intense determination and focus.

The book shows Gulia’s struggles from childhood onwards and being labeled a dumb and physically weak kid. His desire for appreciation and acceptance drives him to overcome his problems and he steadily gets better until a breathing problem is discovered. This makes him unable to pursue sports any longer. However, he became adept at playing chess, flying a microlight aircraft and hang gliders and studied computer science. Finally, he drove uninterrupted to Ladakh’s Marsimik La, the highest mountain pass in the world that is motorable. The book also shows how he successfully passed the defence examination on way to spending four fulfilling years at the academy.

In Quest Of The Last Victory is peppered with various motivational quotes as well. The book has two forewords by Vijaya Ghosh and the legend Milkha Singh. Apart from the preface, the book contains chapters like Arduous Journey Back to Life, Life Thereafter, Coming into Existence, An Appointment with Destiny, Aiming for the Impossible, Training in the Army and Conquering the Death Trap.

ONE OF THE BEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ.....DON'T MISS IT

In Quest of the Last Victory is an inspirational story of the author’s perseverance, fighting spirit and persistent efforts to achieve higher goals by stretching beyond what his physical abilities seemed to permit him. Despite complete paralysis of the body, Navin Gulia continued to have aspirations and made every effort to accomplish them. With a single-minded focus and determination, he turned his disability into a life-affirming force. He mastered chess, studied computer science, flew hang gliders and microlight aircraft, and went on to become the first Indian to drive non-stop to the highest motorable mountain pass in the world, the forbidding Marsimik La in Ladakh. This is a captivating tale of grit and determination that will inspire and motivate people of all ages.

a life changer Book by a life changer Man

.........the amazing story of an Ordinary Indian with "never say quit" attitude which holds your hand and takes you to a journey into writer's own life, where you find a slow and lazy child who is initially an underperformer student with difficult to understand handwriting and poor at mathematics...

... but the thing that brings the difference is deep urge of of doing well, this leds to the transformation of this boy and we see him emerging out as a well built sportsman and a commissioned officer in Indian Army...

Still this brave soldier was to fight a different battle against his own destiny that meets him in the form of an injury during his final training days while a sport competition and brings him on hospital bed with a medically certified 100% disabled body, losing all what he has achieved by then...he is now unable to do any of the things he loved to,

...a youngman of sky exploring spirits and promises has no control over his own body now...he is to be in wheel chair for the rest of his life

...but he doesent losses 'hope' and the very desire of doing
well,of achieving...this time he defeats the mountains (of odds and challenges as well) and wins the world record in adventure driving...(he is still in wheel chair)!!!

Navin Gulia explains 'physically disabled' as 'doubly abled' and defines the Last Victory- 'It is the victory over self ', the triumph over the limits of body and mind...over the negativity towards life...............
The story can change one's life, your's too!!!
