Zindagi Benakaab is a Hindi title written by S.P. Bharill. This is a self-help book that lifts the blinds from the intriguing and complex thought process. Thinking, opinion, tenacity – are different names of our thought pattern. And the universal fact is that what we think that we become. So, this book delves deep into those circumstances that are result of our thinking pattern. Being an underlying self-help book, this is more about recognizing the bad actors in our thinking pattern than in the behavior.
What’s in the book? The book broadly discusses four issues via four chapters. These are:
(1) What people think about me and how can I take control of myself
(2) Obsessed about getting respect, with ego factor
(3) Why me…every time? Is I am so unlucky all the time?
(4) Attachment and happiness with hedonistic factor
Published by Manjul and running up to 160 pages, this is one book that will solve a big problem of Hindi readers who often think that best of the self-help or mentoring books aren’t written in their desired language. The book studies the inside picture of our mind and heart that puts us into situations and ossify our life. Life is all about decisions. What if one always takes wrong decision? The key lies in their complex thought process. The book shares its message through some gullible characters and their life stories. For instance, in the first chapter we see Sheetal. He is going through a nightmare where people are speaking about him on his funeral. Most of the people are talking negative about him because of his actions and deed. When he gets up, he decides to put all wrong things aside and chose the way of honesty and rectitude. In the next chapter, Nandan’s story is more tragic than of any miserable characters from Munshi Premchand’s story.
Likewise situations are discussed with proper stories and characters. Most of the stories will resonate with the readers. The book is credible with its stance and message. The book not only encourages readers but also steers them towards a purposeful direction.
Writing style is coherent and simple, by using some English words the author kept the narration contemporary. The book discusses many elements of our lives that matter to us in terms of happiness, good life, being successful and most importantly to being oneself. It’s a highly relevant book and if gets translated to other languages, it will do a great service to millions of people. Overall, a brilliant self-help book on how to lead a good life for Hindi readers.
