ABOUT THE BOOK:
Three youngsters and three middle-aged men set out to find answers to questions that have forever perplexed human mind. Suddenly, the disaster of Uttarakhand happens, leading them to meet a wonderful social entrepreneur, who seems to know it all. He is busy making social wealth through his company's profit by creating incredible social entrepreneurial systems. His strong intention unites them all, for one ultimate cause.
Beyond: A meaningful journey documents their journey, the teachers they meet on the way, and the lessons they learn. What begins with a search ends with a hope and a promise.
Beyond: A Meaningful Journey is a result of someone's good karma and a great mindset. It is one of best motivational, inspirational and social fiction book ever. The idea of mixing the self-book style and fiction together in a single book is mind-blowing. It's like 'Sweet and Sour' where you get the sweetness of self-help and sourness of fiction, but the end product is totally different and best.
The plot of the book is totally unique and I believe this is what the new generation needs. But after reading the entire book, I think it can serve every age-group with goodness and can inspire to live a better, happy and social life. Age is just a number. Right?
The book deals with the fact that in order to change the world, you must first change yourself. It is full of information and also explains you the facts and goodness of 10 different religions - Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, Zoroastrianism, Taoism, and Confucianism.
I have never read a book before like Beyond: A Meaningful Journey which beautifies the qualities and explains the real teachings of the different religions. It is just amazing and I think the budding Indian authors will get to learn a lot from this book.
The characterization in the book is top class. The plot revolves around multiple characters who are from different field and are of different age-groups but have the same mindset and urge to change the world. I liked the character of "Brahma" the most. On the other hand, the language used in the book is simple and easy to understand. Each and every sentence is powerful enough to click your brain towards the right path.
Overall, I loved this book and would recommend it to everyone who believes in changing the world for good. Must read for entrepreneurs and debut authors. So, go ahead and buy this book from Amazon before it gets SOLD OUT!
