About the Author

Bhaumik Shah enjoys pondering over life bewilderments. Although a pensive person by nature, he has been trying to learn meditation, without much success since last 4 years. He is unmarried and the proud owner of the web domain nashaadi.com and that doesn't mean he won't get married). This is his first attempt at writing a book.

The Cover Speaks

The cover of the book has a word cloud of all human emotions highlighted here and there. And in the middle of the word cloud is GYAAN, the baba with a modern look, wearing western outfit and carrying a spectacle over eyes with a tuft of hair lock in front, interestingly not at the back which most of the baba carries. The tag line - Love Life, Live Life completes the cover of the book.

Synopsis

This book is simply a package of 30 months of life musings, countless conversations and exchange of life experiences. It's not to give you continuous motivation. It's not to keep you happy every time. It's not to make your life perfect. It's not to solve your life problems. This is an effort to make you realize that life is  not perfect. To tell you to accept your life as it is, with problems. to make you realize that in this journey, you are not alone; we all are on the same boat.

Book Review

This book has an interesting story behind its evolution. The author thought of adding some flavours to his life and he decided to pen down his life lessons over a Facebook page . Hence, GYAAN was born and love of the readers and friends forced Bhaumik to compile the best of his posts into this book. 


This book is a perfect read to understand the life and its mysteries without putting stress on your brain. Author has tried to put forward his take on most of the possible scenarios. Most of us look for an answer for every WHY life throws at us. But author has expressed his answer ina different manner. Grab the book and enjoy it. It's a very enlightening and light read. I completed the book straight in an hour. Here are some of the excerpts which I liked the most - 

"There is a reason- you are you. He is he. She is she. I am me. There is a reason- we all are different."

"Be gentle with your life. With yourself. How much good or bad it is, it's yours!"

"Believe it or not, fortunately or unfortunately, happily or sadly, Love can happen multiple times! It's a feeling- can't be controlled."

"Relationship survives when we share emotions- not Emoticons!"

"Things aren't always going to be okay! and that's OKAY."

"A cup of favourite drink, a book or a nice movie, sitting in balcony or on your bed, and spending time with self- can be the most beautiful holiday."

Kudos Bhaumik for sharing your wonderful thoughts with us and making us see life through a different angle.



Happy Reading!
