While our education may prepare us for situations covered within its set syllabus, most of life happens outside this realm and this leaves us grappling with questions around work, life, and everything in between.

But what set him apart was that, unlike most of his peers, he was driven by an intense desire to improve his lot through education.

By dint of his hard work, he managed to get into the Indian Statistical Service, but the Indian Administrative Service was his goal. Unsuccessful at first, he persisted until eventually he cracked the competitive exams and qualified for the IAS.

The Book Thief tells the story of Liesel, a little girl who is taken to a new home because her mother can't afford to take care of her. The story is told by Death, who becomes a character you come to respect and even feel sorry for by the end. The narration puts an odd perspective on the story. Much of what Death says is very philosophical, and even beautiful.
The Book Thief is set in Nazi Germany, at the start of World War Two. On the journey to her new home, Liesel's younger brother dies and she steals her first book: The Gravedigger's Handbook. When she arrives at her new home, she suddenly has a new mama and papa. Haunted every night by nightmares of her brother's death, Liesel and her Papa set themselves the challenge of reading the book, Liesel's last link to her brother. The Book Thief leaves behind a sense of guilt, in some ways. Because it is the British bombs that are falling in Germany, the British who kill so many in the story and leave the reader's cheeks soaked in tears.

The book is divided into three main parts under which there are sub-parts, viz Train your mind, Face the storm, Chase your life. The author has included real-life examples that she has come across or ones that she knows about and used those examples to give us a lesson about what we are supposed to do or don't in times like that. The author has put down some exercises that we may implement while reading the book. Most of the time we usually know the response to a situation but we have a hard time implementing it on our own. For eg, in the event of any sadness, we know we are supposed to stop crying but most of the time we are unable to do so unless someone tells us to do so. Similarly, I believe that there is a need for a book like this to keep us on a right track. I believe that this book can help any person who is having a lot of trouble to keep themselves focused and on the path of their dreams. The ultimate goal of the book is simple yet effective. I enjoyed reading the book and hope you will do too.

According to the author, the book makes proper use of the 'law of attraction? and shows how positive thinking can open a treasure trove of bountiful happiness, health, and wealth. The book posits the law of attraction as a primeval law that completes the law of the universe (as well as our lives) through the process 'like attracts like?. The author is also of the view that as people think and feel, so do they send a corresponding frequency to the universe that in turn attracts events and circumstances of the same frequency. Hence, if one is always able to think positively and think right, naturally, one will obtain the best results always. In all this argument, however, there is no scientific basis for the views expressed as to how such 'attraction' affects the biological and physical processes of the body.

There are too many things one can learn from “The Alchemist”. It's all about following your dream and about taking the risk of following your dreams, which is actually so difficult to do and there are very few people in this world who actually do, I mean risk it all, just to follow your heart and your dream. Beauty is, the author is so right in saying that when u decide to follow your dreams the entire universe conspires in your favour which he called the “beginners luck” and we all have been witness to this beginners luck at one or other point in our lives. Also, he talks about a stage in our journey towards realizing our dreams, where everything just goes haywire and there is everything working against us and it almost takes us to the brink of abandoning everything and just getting back to what was so familiar and comfortable.

There are not many Indian heroes whose lives have been as dramatic and adventurous as that of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. That, however, is an assessment of his life based on what is widely known about him. These often revolve around his resignation from the Indian Civil Service, joining the freedom movement, being exiled twice for over seven years, throwing a challenge to the Gandhian leadership in the Congress, taking up an extremist position against the British Raj, evading the famed intelligence network t
