Wise and Otherwise:A Salute to Life by Sudha Murthy

Well this book is a collection of anecdotes, each gripping in its own way. They are all real incidents Mrs. Sudha Murthy experienced at various phases in her life.

The tagline ‘A Salute to Life’ is very apt. I so loved the book that Iย can’t wait to read the other books written by her. ๐Ÿ™‚

As you read the book, you find her book written in a very simple language. It connects with the common man. Well of course the bag of stories is all about the common man of course. But nevertheless the language too is very simple :), easily connectable.

Respect for her grows throughout the book. Its the minute details that she holds preciously to share with all of us, the personal touch to the stories that adds the salt :).

Its a tribute to lifeย andย humanity in particular. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am so glad I read this book at this time of my life, where what I read impacts my baby the most ๐Ÿ™‚ He would see me relishing the positive/God side of the humane nature and resenting the negative/devil side of the humane nature. I hope he understands and grows up to be a positive humane pumping positive energy all around him.

There are two stories that excited me ๐Ÿ™‚

The very 1st story on honesty where the boy returns his extra stipend money and the other of a poor flower vendor who showed gratitude on behalf of the rest like her to Sudha Murthy for the hospital that was built for the poor.

The best part was Sudha Murthy could respond well and take it all ๐Ÿ™‚

We see a lot of people changing with time and prosperity. She seems to be one who is unmoved as such. And that’s what excites me the most. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope to read the rest of her books pretty soon. And my baby swallows all the good into him. ๐Ÿ™‚
