Tuesdays with Morrie

Tuesdays with Morrie One of those books that makes a profound impact on your life and the way you think. An invitation to introspect more into what life actually means by looking at the most dreaded aspect of life for most of us – Death.

The Book is a memoir of the “Tuesday Classes” Mitch Albom attended with his old professor, Morrie Schwartz. The central theme of the book is perhaps as effort to study and understand human relationships. That’s what touched me the most. In particular I appreciate the manner in which the most significant teachings in life have been brought out to the fore. I always like books that force me to think and the teachings from this one just linger on in my mind and force me to recalculate the parameters that drive my life.

I reproduce here some lines from the book that are most thought provoking.

1. “Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”

2. “Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when i wake up , I am reborn” (Mahatma Gandhi)

3.”I’ve learned this much about marriage,” he said now.”You get tested . You find out who you are, who the other person is , and how you accommodate or don’t”

I think each one of us must read this book at least once. Try it. I can guarantee that you will experience a positive shift in your attitude towards others and life in general. Before I sign off, Thanks R for recommending the book to me.

Hello Blogtown !

Finally i have succumbed to the idea of starting my own blog. I have a minority interest in writing and a majority interest in thinking. But to bring about a little bit of balance to the whole drama of life i thought i will also write something that catches my attention and is worth sharing with all of you readers.

In my blogs I will abide by some simple rules:

1) Be truthful.

2) Be amusing: never tell unkind stories; above all, never tell long ones.(inspired by Disraeli)

3) Never hurt anyone.

and I will ensure that “Sunshine Days” is most regular.

Note: a) Please use RSS feeds to feel the pulse of my bloglife.

b) My blogs are open to comments, please do scribble your views
