‘My Thousand Sons’ is a collection of choicest autobiographical anecdotes advocating spiritual handling of life’s daily conflicts and hassles with the aim of living a more meaningful and fruitful life. We live in an age of uncertainty, constantly working towards trying to find one’s way out of the labyrinth of life and death, heaven and hell, and bringing an end to our successive cycles of incarnations. But perhaps in doing so, we are losing sight of the real purpose of life.
Our only real and true concern in life should be to fill in each day with as much happiness, magnanimity and humanity as we can. Our karma, will then take us wherever we belong.
With their diverse themes, the one hundred and nine motivational anecdotes seek to empower and embolden; and propel one towards discovery and appreciation of one’s true self.
Displaying rare sensitivity, the author has brought to the forefront several of the ambiguities and dilemmas dogging contemporary Indian society. He has presented an endearing and soul stirring memoir of the places he visited and introduced the readers to a rich cast of individuals suffering from the rarest of afflictions, who left a lasting impression on him.
