Cover is attractive and it’s according to the content of the book. The color and design of the cover is just awesome. As you know the yellow color looks sober and it gives pleasure to the eyes and the smiley that’s included in this cover depicts happiness.
Blurb, perfectly tells a lot about the inside matter of this book. The mission of the author is to awaken the dormant happy person who is in deep slumber within the folk.
“Happiness is nothing but a state of mind. It is a benediction. It doesn’t depend on wealth; it depends on the mental climate of a person.”
There are 107 chapters in this book which contain different stories and experiences about different peoples and the author did his best to narrate their life incidents in a very interesting way in this book. Few words and lines will touch your heart. You can’t deny the reality after reading this book. In today’s time we see everyone is busy in their life and trying their best to achieve money, wealth, happiness, fame and the comfort zone but no one knows that during achieving all these sometimes they lose their fundamental rights of living a happy life in search of money. They don’t know that they can’t purchase everything through money. He has also mentioned a famous quote in this book which is
“Money will buy a bed but not the sleep. It may buy food but not an appetite, A house but not a home, Medicine but not health, Comforts but not culture, Amusement but not happiness, Religion but not salvation, A passport to everywhere but heaven.”
He has highlighted that happiness is nothing but a state of mind. And that state of mind can be achieved only by exploring the inner world. Outer World and someone else’s thoughts can’t change your state of mind and you can’t earn happiness but you have to dive into your own world. Attaining happiness is a spontaneous process. Ego Is the greatest barrier in the way of happiness. He has portrayed several real life incidents in a very simple way in all the chapters of this book which has the potential to change human beings and it will surely help you to follow the right path throughout your life.
Few quotes of this book which are very thoughtful:
“Happiness is just like your own shadow, sometimes it is seen and most of the times it is invisible. You need to be attached to it, but never try to overtake it or chase it. It is inseparable; still it is searched by the folk. Look within your inner being. You will certainly get it and feel it. If you can’t enjoy your life and make others happy by your presence, your existence doesn’t have any use at all, however great you may be.”
“Anyone pursues anything against his will then he is bound to be unhappy.”
“Every person wants to achieve something in life and his happiness depends on those achievements. There must be some reason which can make you happy.”
“Never store your knowledge, share it with your friends and juniors. They will be happy and their happiness will make you happy.”
I liked the story and it’s quite attractive in its own way. The author did a great job making it better by adding different elements about life experiences. The chapter was quite short and easy to understand. Every chapter has its own fun, emotions, and scenes that are quite related to daily life. The language was easy to understand even for a beginner, reader can easily understand. The narration was quite good. Overall, it was great. I would definitely recommend this.
