Read full description of the books:
Sudha Mam's this book I read in Hindi edition when my Mom brought it for me. It had a beautiful orange cover, named 'Apna Deepak Svayam Bano'.
I took this book everywhere I went. The stories told by her are inspiring, touching, innocent and written so beautifully. Every word by her is imprinted in my mind as I read it in quite an early age but quite enough to understand and bring the morals in my behaviour.
Until she told about meeting A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, I didn't realize whose book I really was reading!
I started reading the book again, this time with I put myself too much into it.
The story when she teaches her Granny how to read, when her Granny touches Mrs. Sudha's feet because she is now her teacher, about red rice, about her joining Tata company and being the first female to dare to do so at those times, meeting Mr. Murti, marrying him, supporting him, her investment plans, her being a teacher of computer science, philanthropist and a writer.
This kind of book should be published more, such people should exist more.
Archit, if ever you have to go through hard times, ever the world seemed crashing down, everything turning inside out then look beside you, did you just feel someone's hand on yours, holding you too tightly, not letting you fall or look down on yourself, looking into your eyes and smiling? Did you feel there someone? Did you just wonder why?
Ah, don't be wondering so, just smile as your Pooja says to you, holding you gently that she has read such books that has taught her how to stand, smile and face the storm, how not to flinch in any condition, how to keep promises, how to value and respect her family and above all you! I'll be there. <3
