Description
Extraordinary stories about ordinary people’s livesOver the years, Sudha Murty has come across some fascinating people whose lives make for interesting stories and have astonishing lessons to reveal. Take Vishnu, who achieves every material success but never knows happiness; or Venkat, who talks so much that he has no time to listen. In other stories, a young girl goes on a train journey that changes her life forever; an impoverished village woman provides bathing water to hundreds of people in a drought-stricken area; a do-gooder ghost decides to teach a disconsolate young man Sanskrit; and in the title story, a woman in a flooded village in Odisha teaches the author a life lesson she will never forget. From the bestselling author of Wise and Otherwise and The Old Man and His God, this is another heart-warming collection of real-life stories that will delight readers of all ages.

Simple yet Inspiring stories

I bought this book as it was available at a very cheap price of Rs. 19. What attracted me the most was the title of the book. But, when I started reading and as soon as I finished first story, the book seemed to offer something different. The book is filled with different inspiring stories and I really loved reading it.

I bought this book to inculcate the habit of e-reading and I think every penny was worth it :)

good book

i wouldnnt say the book is vry innovative and has very new stories. no it has all those normal common stories tht happen to us everyday. the good thing is tht it has been presented in such a way that you then realise the importance of those events in your life and learn lessons tht u ought have learned on ur own without the help of this book. it changes ur way of looking at ur life if u have an open heart n u like to help others

Much wisdom taught in this book are through very common scenes, which could happen to everyone and any one in our lifetime, but we never would have expected so. I personally have gained a bit of new outlook on people, t...

Had potential but turned out disappointed

Very simple English and can be skimmed through the book in couple of hours. The book is basically composed of short stories which author encountered in real life. Couple of chapters at the start will lure you to continue reading but as you progress the book sort of becomes a morality preacher rather than encounters that are interesting. At times it feels like the stories were constructed to preach a topic in morality. The author shows contradicting ideology in many instances and tries to be j...
