Publisher: Rupa Publications
Publication Year: 2016
Rating: 4 on 5
Life Mantras is a book that sheds light on the philosophy of life penned by Dr. Subrata Roy Sahara, the founder of the Sahara India Parivaar. The author, who is also popular by the name of Saharasri, has not only proved himself as an entrepreneur but is also known as one of the boldest and most vociferous figures of corporate India. Dr. Roy has dedicated this book, which is the first of the trilogy, to his father, the late Mr. Sudhir Chandra Roy.
As I started reading the book, I did not know what to expect. However, the first few pages itself made me realize that this book has been written keeping in view the masses who seek a deeper meaning of life. Unlike the other books written about the philosophy of life, the book unravels several layers of meaning and explores new areas in depth. The book highlights the fact that in order to attain true happiness, peace, continuous growth and even contentment and material gains in their life, people do not need to depend on others. One needs to accept the fact that no one does anything for anyone without any selfish motives and hence expecting something for any sacrifices we make is simply not justifiable.
The book made me aware of the importance of fulfilling personal and professional duties to ensure that I reap the benefits of a joyful life. The book has been beautifully written and presents to the readers the a wide range of personal experiences of the author himself that have laid a significant impact on his life, personality and perspective. Overall I found Life Mantras to be an engaging book to read and it helped in reviving my belief in the fact that life can be rewarding, blissful and ultimately satisfying if we choose the right path.
I wish Subrata Roy all the best with the next two parts of this trilogy.
