Tarun Deep Singh is a highly philosophical author who often writes to encourage and motivate the youth of today. Often his books are deep in meaning and carry various undertones that grip the grim realities of today’s world. Before you look into this book, have you read his previous book – What is an Indian? If not, do read that first in order to understand this one better.
The Journey is a motivational cum philosophical book that deals with travelling – as the tagline says Traveller Within. Not that tourist-type travelling, in fact the author has put forward a theory as how one can travel within one’s soul. This journey will help one in understanding his/her capabilities, bliss, and restrictions and so on. We would not shy away by saying that after a certain point the book becomes a blend of spirituality and philosophy.
The content of the book is aptly divided which further enhances the experience of readers. For instance, the author has covered most concerning topics in six chapters. Out of which, he further classified the fourth chapter into eight sub topics, in a sense it was a good decision as we see that the intensity is high and if clubbed altogether in one chapter could have been resulted in haphazard.
Among all chapters, the first chapter The Fallen One is prominent and concurrent to the overall theme of the book. We found that the author has emphasized a lot on this concept of The Fallen One and The Falling One. If you can understand this concept, it means you got the crux of the book. Another interesting chapter is The Biggest Lie? Yes, after reading this, you may feel that up until your life was surrounded by lies, and what possibly good you can do to come out of this trap. The book is a treasure; the more you get into it and read it, the more you will explore yourself.
In the wake of belief-provoking chapters, we also have Appendixes: though short but laced with powerful content. Without giving away much, whosoever wants to explore the depth of one’s soul and the purpose of life, must pick up this book and find themself at the brink of transformation. The more you praise this book, the less it is. Like his previous works, this book too is abounding with quotes and proverbs from saints and great figures from history and religion and spirituality.
Take your own time, read it unhurriedly, and for concept clarity the author has given a glossary along with the chapters. It is a well-written and well-edited book. Tarun Deep Singh is one of the rarest writers in India who loves to plunge into the depth of his subjects. Highly recommended.
