A concise narrative of how to improve the quality of your life. Don't be in a hurry, mindfulness,. go with the flow and "wabi-sabi" - lessons that will stay with you long after you have finished reading. The description of Japanese city 'Okinawa' is so vivid that I feel the urge to travel there myself! Calming read overall.

Narrated beautifully, this book talks about everything that is ugly & dark in India. The words are woven in an intricate thread and the writing is quite poetic - with phrases from Urdu, Kashmiri & Malayalam poetry. All characters have a strong history - they stay with you even after you have finished reading.
