    Description
    So often, it's the simplest acts of courage that touch the lives of others. Sudha Murty-through the exceptional work of the Infosys Foundation as well as through her own youth, family life and travels-encounters many such stories . . . and she tells them here in her characteristically clear-eyed, warm-hearted way. She talks candidly about the meaningful impact of her work in the devadasi community, her trials and tribulations as the only female student in her engineering college and the unexpected and inspiring consequences of her father's kindness. From the quiet joy of discovering the reach of Indian cinema and the origins of Indian vegetables to the shallowness of judging others based on appearances, these are everyday struggles and victories, large and small. Unmasking both the beauty and ugliness of human nature, each of the real-life stories in this collection is reflective of a life lived with grace.

    Great product

    Firstly, it is a non fiction..There are 11 stories (if u want to call them stories) in it.All of them are true incidents faced either by the author or by his parents or people known to her.I always love a Sudha Murty book because of her simplistic approach , delicate handling of subject matter,sensitive views and lucid language.This book is also blessed with the above mentioned attributes.In this book the author is found to share with us some of the gravest problems of our societies .There a...
