Joker in the pack


These days I have seen many rave reviews about this book which is about life@IIM.Just ordered the book and will have to wait for the book to be delivered for a week long now.I will put down my thoughts on this book very soon in this space.

Update(28 sep 2008):

Book was delivered through VPP on 26 Sep.Prompt service by Orient Paperbacks i must say.I have completed reading this one at a strech sparing about 6 odd hours.I was totally involved and couldn’t really stop myself from reading.If the price of the book were to be around 100-150 the sales would indubitably augment.

The following is an excerpt from the book.

We see a star,

and admire its glitter,

the twinkle catching our eye,

and all through our lives

we only see the twinkle

whenever we see that star.

We know but fail to see,

that all it takes to be a star,

is an unending fire.

A fire that’s beneath the surface,

the fire that made it the star it is.

And had we seen the star this way,

we might as well have woken up to the fact,

that the only thing separating us,

from being a star,

is the lack of fire within our hearts.

will pen down my thoughts on this book soon….
