THE PLOT IN BRIEF-
The book will act as your spiritual Guide.
A question, ‘who am I?’ has always bothered me. This always remained
the real and the biggest quest. I love this question. And in search of
the answer I am writing this book. May be some day or other I get the
Excellent is the question. Excellent should be the answer.
But whatever be the answer, I am sure about one thing that I am not Nitin.
This is the search in this book. This book will be loved by many
especially by those who have the same question in their mind.
So, this is not only my search but it is search of everyone.
You will love to read this book.
You will also find some authentic reasons for this search.
READ THE BOOK AND YOU WILL FEEL A DEPTH IN YOUR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY.
The title itself shows us a glimpse of the question WHO AM I? Am I not
who I am? I’m learning persistence and the closing of doors, the way
the seasons come and go as I keep walking on these roads, back and
forth, to find myself in new time zones, new arms with new phrases and
new goals. And it hurts to become, hurts to find out about the poverty
and gaps, the widow and the leavers. It hurts to accept that it hurts
and it hurts to learn how easy it is for people to not need other
people. Or how easy it is to need other people but that you can never
build a home in someone’s arms because they will let go one day and
you must build your own. The title itself gives you a glimpse of I
must be myself. I must forget these people buzzing inside my head, I
must forget their voices, their smells, their demands, their love,
their hate, and be myself and I must be myself.
I must be myself, because if I failed to be myself, I become the
person they wanted me to be; if I had to be that insufferable person,
I’d rather be nothing at all. It would be better if I didn’t exist.
I felt the title was a very cleverly plotted and appropriate for the plot.
REVIEW OF THE BOOK-
This beautiful book made me realize that you can be the most beautiful
person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they
look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t
even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every
moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life
wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have
forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of
your moments away.
The answer to the question “WHO AM I?” will make you go through the
entire book at one go. The plot was so beautifully crafted that it
portrays the person in life that you will always be with the most, is
yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with
yourself, too! When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself,
laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street
in the sunlight you are with yourself. What kind of person do you want
to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake
up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the
end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is
yourself, and it’s your responsibility to be that person you want to
be with. I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows how to
let things go, who’s not full of hate, who’s able to smile and be
carefree. So that’s who I have to be.
It’s true that most of us do not know ourselves. This books provides
you with a spiritual journey which develops a feeling within you that
If you learn to really sit with loneliness and embrace it for the gift
that it is…an opportunity to get to know YOU, to learn how strong you
really are, to depend on no one but YOU for your happiness…you will
realize that a little loneliness goes a LONG way in creating a richer,
deeper, more vibrant and colourful YOU.
And lastly, one of the best guides to how to be self-loving is to give
ourselves the love we are often dreaming about receiving from others.
There was a time when people feel lousy about their over-forty body,
sees themselves as too fat, too this, or too that. Yet we fantasized
about finding a lover who would give me the gift of being loved as we
are. It is silly, isn’t it that we would dream of someone else
offering to me the acceptance and affirmation we were withholding from
us. This was a moment when the maxim “You can never love anybody if
you are unable to love yourself” made clear sense. And I add, “Do not
expect to receive the love from someone else you do not give yourself.
YOU SHOULD READ THIS BECAUSE-
1. YOU WOULD FIND SELF LOVE AND MOTIVATION
2. THE FIGHTING SPIRIT DESCRIBED THROUGHOUT THE PLOT
3. THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION WHO AM I?.
Overall I would like to rate the book 45 on a scale of 50.
