In a world full of technology and Social Media, sometimes we all need a little break to ground ourselves and connect ourselves with solitude and peace, giving rest to only our bodies, and eyes, but also our minds. And what can be better than grabbing a little book, with maybe a cup of coffee or tea, near a window or out in nature, and enjoying the moment, the present time? Books are indeed one of the greatest companions of the human breed. As said by the writer Oscar Wilde, “With Freedom, Flowers, Moon and Books, who could not be happy?”.
And a good book is far more special and beautiful than its content craved in pages that are glued together with two covers as the door to their world. A good book is like a mirror which reflects the imagination and beauty of the mind that the author possesses. Just like a video camera, which records beautiful things, a book records the beauty that resides inside a person’s mind. As they also say, “If you want to know a person, try to know about their favourite Books”.
And one such amazing gifted Author that our country has, is Sudha Murthy, 72 years old, an Indian author who has given birth to many amazing and mind-blowing books.
