    Dear friends,

    I just stumbled on this book while surfing across the shelf of my library. The title attracted me, so just picked it up.
    This books is beautiful creation of the author Ashok Banker, who has tried to relate the well-known story of Valmiki to a life of an average working class. Myself being a working mother, the story is has been proved to be super inspiring and has made my mind clear about my decisions
    The books talks about few professional – corporate woman, who have lost the balance between work and family. All the harm would have done by the time they realize the reality.
    The book decently explains the prevailing family situation where the parents are not available to the child, the struggle by the young couples for growth of carrier with no time for each her. The author adds drama to the book by bringing out similarities among our life to Valmiki’s life.
    The author says, we should not try to juggle too many things, one day a ball is going to fall and the day one ball falls, all others are sure to fall.
    My recommendation is that all working professional should read this book and realize the need to dedicate one’s time for personal fulfillment and family’s emotional growth.

    Wow! Sounds interesting, thanks for talking about this book.

    This is exactly what many people are advocating in the western media these days, that women cannot have it all and making an earnest plea to slow down.

    I do hope India can make sense of it before its too late.
