      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      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.

    Description

    In Does He Know a Mother’s Heart? – How Suffering Refutes Religions, Arun Shourie poignantly and profoundly examines the existence of suffering and the stands of different scriptures about it.

    Summary of the Book

    Politician, journalist and author Arun Shourie brings out his intense philosophical ponderings in Does He Know a Mother’s Heart? He attempts to find out why there seems to be a sense of indifference in God when it comes to extreme suffering, especially when it is so commonplace. He tries to dissect the scriptures to understand why the almighty, the most compassionate entity, doesn’t interfere when the innocent are put to endure immense pain and loss. Shourie also explains why he is more gravitated towards Buddhism, and what the teachings hold for those who are going through trying times in their daily lives.

    Fascinating

    Firstly,this is one of it's kind book from Arun Shourie.His earlier books were on Politics/Court Judgements/Reservations/Secularism etc.This one is Philosophical and attempts to answer the question that each of us sometimes in his/her life has to grapple with:"If there is an omnipresent,all-knowing,compassionate God,why is there so much suffering in this world?"
    First Chapter deals with Arun Shourie's personal struggle with such suffering:His son,now 34 years old has been suffering from Cereb...

    When we start to read it looks like a heart rending personal life misery, than it transforms into an amazing analysis of Quran, Bible and Hindu scriptures . May be one has to read quran and bible to know the characters like Job. Again he jumps to Mahathma Gandhi's opinion .

    It is too frank and I read the first 200 pages in 15 days and the remaining 233 pages in 5 hours during a journey.

    Very rarely we come across Indian authors analysing varied subjects and a non fiction interesting.

    Interesting book - need to keep religion aside when reading this

    Arun Shourie delves at length into the eternal question - God or NO God. He does a good job proving his point - albeit he ends up being relatively harsh on the Abrahamic Religions. But then being bound to a book of code, a manual it is easier to draw from them.

    Overall a well rounded book, which does put some serious questions on the working of the God (in case the reader believes in the fact that there is one :)).

    pleasure to buy with

    It is very nice to shop with flipcart. service and followup is very fine. but a little problem with courier service. courier boy never confirms whether customer (my experience) is available on delivery address, i.e. office. he comes to office and then makes call. Afterwards asks to collect the parcel from his office. in courier office it appears that people there are much busy. they even does not enquire why a customer came to their office...! otherwise experience with flipcart is very nice.

    Not the best buy for good readers

    I would say this is a fine book, but those who are used to a better class of literature like the bookers and the nobels would find it rather boring. The cause invoked is pressing but the writer just goes a bit monotonous and unecessarily lengthens the book

    topic is ok

    This book although has a good topic , which could have been written probably in a better way , gets boring in between has not been able to maintain the interest of the reader, mr shori could have done a better job, i have read many of his books this is not at par with the rest. i would give it one and a half .
