WWW WEDNESDAY VOL. 21

www_wednesdays43Hello book lovers! 

It’s Wednesday and time for another episode of WWW, the weekly book meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. To play along, we just have to answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

And here are my answers this week:

I am currently reading Life is a Pack of 52 cards by Sumeet Jain(I won it in a Goodreads Giveaway). In this book the author has shared his life experiences & the life lessons he had gathered over the years. I am getting a bit slow with the book. Here is the blurb –

52cardsLife is always a game of choices. It involves an interplay of conclusions that we draw every day, depending upon our perception of life. 

As the perceptions change, so do the conclusions too. To some, life has always been half-full’ while others perceive it as half-empty’. Through this book, one can easily solder wire the brain, to look at life only and only as an offering ‘half-full’ instead of looking at it as half-empty. It is neither a book on Do’s and Don’ts nor is it some kind of a rule-book. It does not unveil any secret recipe of that magic potion either, which we have been searching for years. 
The book, in reality, is a beautiful and honest compilation of authors personal and professional experiences. It elucidates and describes the various teachings that life has offered to him over all these years. Life is not only stranger than we can ever imagine, it is mysterious as well. It is like a riddle, wrapped as an enigma. Life is also the single most complex process to be understood, after the human brain. Each one of us has a unique life to live and each one of us has to deal with it uniquely rendering it almost impossible to have one size that fits all. However, the book would surely help us create a framework, thus enabling us to lead and live our life better in bliss and in peace. 
The author pledges to donate all proceeds from the sale of this book to Being Human Foundation dedicated to educating the underprivileged kids and undertaking healthcare measures for them. He firmly believes that while our earnings reflect how we make a living, our contributions to the society embody how we make a life.

I recently finished reading  Maya in search of Tantric Father by Vipin Behari Goyal. I started reading it together with Life is a Pack of 52 cards in an attempt to read more than 1 book at a time. But as always I went ahead with the fiction & finished it first. 🙂 This book gives an insight into the spiritual way of life in India from the perspective & experiences of an American girl. Review of the book shall be up very soon.

mayaRegarding the book I will read next, I have two books (both are anthology of short stories) to read & review within this month–
