How To Write A Book… To Transform The World!

How To Write A Book To Transform The World

So, you want to write a book?

Nothing extra-ordinary about that. In fact, writing a book has consistently ranked among the top 10 New Year resolutions made. Literally MILLIONS of people like you have decided to write a book this year.

But… why not take it up a notch?

Since you’re going to write a book anyway, why not go big – and transform the world with it?!

I hear that grumpy little naysayer inside your head whine: “Ah, come off it. Who’s got time to bother about changing the world. Just let me write a book.”

Before you listen to The Voice, close this page, and get back to your writing, give me just a couple of minutes… to try and change your mind.

Because it’s far more fun – and a lot easier than you thought – to write a book that will transform the world.

Happy Diwali – The Story of Deepavali

Meaning of Deepavali - Happy Diwali

Diwali, the Festival of Lights, is the greatest festival celebrated all over India. It projects the rich and glorious past of our country and teaches us to uphold the true values of life.  (A few years back, I even got an entirely new perspective from a post on Twitter, and blogged about it here.)

The word “Diwali” derives from the Sanskrit “Deepavali” — Deepa meaning light and Avali, meaning a row.

On Diwali day, home is awash with the orange glow of twinkling diyas (small earthen lamps) lit to welcome Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity.

It is looked upon as the beginning of the business New Year, and blessings of Lakshmi, the celestial consort of Lord Vishnu, are invoked with prayers.

Bavaria’s Linderhof Palace – Power And Magnificence

Megalomania.

It’s a word we use to describe wielding power recklessly.

Yet everyone craves power. We want to control events and people. To direct our actions meaningfully. To take charge of projects, activities, our lives.

On one of our evening walks, my daughter and I debated the issue – and an important point emerged.

Power must be tempered by responsibility.

When one desires power but shirks responsibility for using it, the journey towards megalomania begins.

Quite a few modern leaders would qualify under this definition. But megalomania isn’t something new. Many ancient rulers had it. And acted on it so grandly that there still remains evidence of their obsession with displaying power and strength.

We see it in their palaces and monuments.

One we toured recently was the luxurious Bavarian palace of Linderhof, built by King Ludwig II in the mid-1800s.
