Book Review: Embrace Magnificence by Mohamed Abdulla

Embrace Magnificence by Mohamed Abdulla is a book with purpose. It serves the readers with knowledge about our world, universe, planet, and body, and mind and everything in between. As the tagline of the books states – a book filled with natural knowledge. It indeed is.

Going by the genre of the book, it is either a reference book or simply putting a non-fiction. Some books can never be judged by their cover or genre, the only way to discover the treasure within it, is to delve deep in it. The book holds around 75 pages in Kindle, and 98 in paperback. However, a close look reveals that it is no less than an encyclopedia with fascinating details and science concepts. In simpler words, our lives are surrounded by facts, stats, and natural aspects – however these elements are hidden from our mindset and eyes. This book sheds light on knowledge that persists in the nature that surrounds us or keeps us alive. Reading this book means seeing the things a bit deeper than they are.

The grandness of our creator is magnanimous. He created everything with a purpose and set them in a functional position due to an equilibrium which often remains blinded from our eyes. The finest example is water cycle and bacteria in our body. They are not haphazard; they are by choice of the Almighty. Similarly, there are scores of functional elements that are part of equilibrium but to us they are just either ordinary or random things.

Clearly the stance of the book is entertaining, engaging, and informative. It is laced with brilliant insights about our life in the universe. Like a habitual teacher, the book keeps answering questions that are hidden in the back of our mind. At times, we sought their answers from elders, religious books, school teachers, and now online. As the writer says, nowadays there is a lot of knowledge around us but the problem is how to grasp it, that too, in a trusted order.

The book is segmented broadly into 5 chapters like ‘Lucia’ that talks about colours, ‘Yin and Yang’, which is about dualism in the universe, and so on. But each chapter has its own share of sub topics, thus in a way it sheds light on many insights about our life, body mechanism, the working of the universe, and much more. Another USP of the book is personal stories from author’s life. He presented lucidly and then related them with the content of the book. There are scores of books on such topics…but covering such a length of knowledge in less than 100 pages indicates that the author is well-versed with his subjects.

The cover page and title of the novel is apt. It moves at its own. My personal opinion of the book is that it covered three aspects nicely that are cosmic, earth, and our body. The book will definitely give a feeling of fulfillment. I highly recommend this book to all readers and researchers being grappled with most common yet intrigue questions about our existence.

Poem Summary: Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Even the brightest of metal, one day decays with passage of time. The throne name of Egyptian King Ramesses is Ozymandias. It was his dearest desire to preserve himself forever by building a huge statue that he thought would never tumble down. Stanza 1: I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed; Summary: The poet narrates the poem through the eyes of a traveler who seems to have come back from a remote and far-away land, referring to Egypt. The traveler r
