I received the book Think with Me: Fundamentals of making our country ideal by Sahararasri Subrata Roy Sahara as a review copy from the publisher Rupa publications and would like to thank them for the same.
When we see the problems related to political leadership, population growth, education, the media and religion going from bad to worse, a natural question comes up in our minds. Where, after all, did we go wrong? What happened during our democratic journey of independent India that we are faced with nasty problems on all these fronts? Why couldn’t we teach people occupying places of responsibility that rights are given to perform your genuine duties, not to serve your personal whims, false ego and greed?”
It is the author’s firm belief that if the problems related to the above five fundamental issues continue to be as they are, the nation will be hit by a crisis of unimaginable proportions, our national edifice would crumble and everything that our leaders had valued and held sacred for the love of the country before independence, would be lost forever. So, the author, through a deep-seated and thought provoking commentary on these issues invites you to think along with him and ponder over them honestly and sincerely. While going through the book, you may come across points where you differ with the author but in the end, you will be convinced that to make our country ideal, the need is for a wider awakening on the issues as discussed in the book.
The author has discussed in detail five ‘problems’ that he feels our country is facing, namely, Electoral system & Leadership; Population; Education system; Media and Religion. He has formed certain ideas about each one of them and presented them in this book. He mentions that he expects that the thoughts and ideas that he has expressed in the book would compel the reader to ponder over them and eventually promote positive thinking in the readers.
He has written the book in simple English which is easy to understand. But the book makes the reader put on his thinking caps….
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book from the publisher in return for my honest review. I have NOT received any monetary compensation for the same.
