If in the middle of this on-going crisis phase, you are wondering how you can boost yourself positively this weekend, you don’t need to go too far anymore. ‘The Gift of Life’ by author Aabha Rosy Vatsa is the best gift you can give yourself.
Well, from a genre standpoint, this piece belongs to an autobiography. However, from a content standpoint, the book goes beyond an autobiography. In general, in an autobiography the writer tends to only tell a set of tales from her or his life. That’s where this particular book stands out. Even though author Aabha Rosy Vatsa presented us with a series of anecdotes in this particular book, she took the narration to the next level by going deeper into these anecdotes. She went on to explain the learnings she had from different chapters of her life. While attempting this, the key prerequisite a reader often looks for is the range that exists in the life of the writer. Well, this is one point where Ms. Vatsa simply differentiates herself from the mass. She had put together her story which spread across five decades in six different places – Punjab, Allahabad, Zambia, Chandigarh, New Delhi, and Faridabad. Now each of these places has flavour and dimension of its own. That’s where this particular book had gone on to become a multi-dimensional and multi-flavoured book.
One should definitely read this book to understand the sequence of events from a life lived less ordinary and most importantly the divine experiences experienced in the process. This book will surely engage readers of all ages, cutting across caste, creed, and gender, as the soul of the narrative relies on the human element and quest for life’s purpose and the resulting happiness. It is an immensely engaging read that is bound to leave footprints in the reader’s heart. So much so, the perspective of the reader is surely going to get uplifted after reading this book.
Read this book to get immensely inspired and motivated. A book every member of the family can read for sure. Written in a lucid, reader friendly manner, the book is fast paced and very engaging.
