Few quotes from the book i like

That’s the thing about pain, it demands to be felt.

Some infinites are bigger than other infinites

My Contest Entry
Book :- Alice in the Wonderland
https://www.amazon.in/Alice-Wonderland-Wei-Luo/...

Author :- Lewis Carroll

Why i like it and why i will suggest other to read it
Well, I will say that I always feel engulfed by this book. I have never picked this book up without instantly feeling submersed in the Wonderland. And it is my favourite place to be.
I believe that this is the most beautiful, amazing, curious and confusing setting of all time. It is strange, it is immersive, and it’s so creative, fantastic & unique
I love Alice and her curiosity about the things around. She is also my favourite character and is much more mature than her age. She’s childlike, sweet & funny such a blast to read about.
Alice in Wonderland carries as little or as much significance as you want it to. It is everything from a mindless romp in a fantasyland to a depiction of the effects of a ruthlessly authoritarian system of justice.

Few quotes from the book i like
“And what is the use of a book,” thought Alice, “without pictures or conversations?” —Chapter 1, Down the Rabbit-Hole
“How funny it’ll seem to come out among the people that walk with their heads downwards! The antipathies, I think—” —Chapter 1, Down the Rabbit-Hole
“How funny it’ll seem to come out among the people that walk with their heads downwards! The antipathies, I think—” —Chapter 1, Down the Rabbit-Hole

Only if my entry is counted stuck_out_tongue

Book – Elon Musk: How the Billionaire CEO of SpaceX and Tesla is Shaping our Future
Author: Ashlee Vance

Quick Synopsis and my take on the book:
Just when the world was going crazy to watch the Star Wars and Avengers; Elon Musk (Paypal founder & Businessman) worked closely to actually saving the energy resources with Tesla (electric car) and building new colony on Mars with SpaceX (Travel to Mars initiative). He invested all his earned fortune to take up an initiative to save the Earth with his ongoing current projects. I would recommend a read to know what tech advances future holds for us and how one man’s vision can bring about a change!

Book: I too had a love story
Author: Ravindhar singh
Reason why I love this book: The book is based on the true love stroy of the author. The way he describes his love is beautiful. His feelings for her, the way he describes her is soo lovely. His joy when their marriage got fixed, his sadness when her lover met with an accident is very clearly explained by the author. However, the ending is tragedic but the book is very heart touching.
There is another book continuation to this ‘Can love happens twice’. The two books are so lovely and has got good feel in them.

I am not a polyglot. But I want to give an experience to those who approach me to know about my Guru in their mother tongue. Many seekers would like to experience in their own language, helps them to understand at the first exposure, from thereon they can take their spiritual journey.

Here all dimers are not masters in their chosen field, still the collective effort brings in lot of advantages…

Book :- The Code of the Extraordinary mind
https://www.amazon.in/Code-Extraordinary-Mind-U...
Author :- Vishen Lakhiani

Why i like it and why i will suggest other to read it

If you want to read a book on “self-development”, then this book can be a masterpiece for you.
This book portrays about the culturescape which we have built around ourselves since long ago. We don’t want to leave our culturescape i.e. our comfort zone and hence not stepping ahead. This book aims one to escape from that culturescape and to grow as a strong person.
Favourite Quote: Make a dent in the universe

Book: The Diary of a Young Girl Paperback – 2014
Link: https://www.amazon.in/Diary-Young-Girl-Anne-Fra...
Author by Anne Frank

Why i like it and why i will suggest other to read it

It is a fictional biography written by an anonymous author about an event that never existed and got the entire world to pay large sums of money about and caused a genetic memory of retribution and survivors guilt that can silence any critic. One of the best cons in history.. It is an understanding of how to take advantage of others by spinning a story about an imaginary tale of suffering and hardship experienced in the third person of what it would have been like in a real world situation. So when you tell someone I understand what you are going through, this book will give you ample leverage to use about events you have no idea about. You can also use tricks in the book to demand sympathy and money from others as an oppressed and suffering college student and part time swiggy driver.

Few quotes from the book i like

Well I don’t have anything in the book I want to quote.. Its a fake book..

Book i want to buy : Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.. a partly autobiographical book written by John Perkins published in 2004. It provides Perkins’ account of his career…

https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/562137/medium/57789081556023795_3.jpg?1556023796

The story of one man who goes to countries to get the government to accept stipulations on allowing trade and investment which would vastly lower the quality of life of its people or face the forces of democracy and regime change.. At least its a real book.

Book: Rich Dad, Poor Dad

About the Author:

Robert Kiyosaki who has authored over 26 books is an entrepreneur, educator, investor

About the book:

“There is gold everywhere. Most people are not trained to see it”, is one of my favorites from this book.

An intriguing aspect which needs to be taught widely, but nobody bothers to teach the kids at school has been covered by the author here, “Financial literacy” and “Financial Intelligence”.

Book Name: Think and Grow Rich
Author: Napoleon Hill
Genre: Self-help, Nonfiction

It took a quarter of a century to accumulate information and write this book, such a persistent and consistent effort. The author had written a great book of life full of lessons.
It is written on the back of this book that " this book is probably the best self-help book ever written" I agree with that line and support it.
This book was published in 1940s,a bit old book but had every bit of relevant and eternal information which we think of now and ever.
THINK AND GROW RICH was the title of the book but reading this book twice I came to know that lot more titles suit this book and a few I thought were
THINK AND GROW PERSONALITY
THINK AND GROW CHARACTER
THINK AND GROW WISDOM
THINK AND GROW MOTIVATION.
Fabulous book and continuing to admire the work.

The next book I wanna buy is: https://www.amazon.in/dp/8172234988/ref=cm_sw_e...
