Book Description

Readers may find these essays pleasant reading, for they are short, topical, written in simple English and are by no means didactic. Grouped under the broad caption ‘Religion and Culture’, they deal with some of our basic problems rooted within ourselves. The essays remind us of our infinite potential and summon us not to look outside for help but to use the powers that lie hidden within us to overcome whatever problems we may encounter. The message the essays convey is that ‘being’ is more important than ‘having’. Practical hints are given as to how this can be achieved. The essays are in fact a call to action. Ali through the tone is one of hope and courage.
