Extraordinary stories about ordinary people’s lives
Over the years, Sudha Murty has come across some fascinating people whose lives make for interesting stories and have astonishing lessons to reveal. Take Vishnu, who achieves every material success but never knows happiness; or Venkat, who talks so much that he has no time to listen. In other stories, a young girl goes on a train journey that changes her life forever; an impoverished village woman provides bathing water to hundreds of people in a drought-stricken area; a do-gooder ghost decides to teach a disconsolate young man Sanskrit; and in the title story, a woman in a flooded village in Odisha teaches the author a life lesson she will never forget. From the bestselling author of Wise and Otherwise and The Old Man and His God, this is another heart-warming collection of real-life stories that will delight readers of all ages.

www.whatapoint.blogspot.inThis is the first book of Mrs. Murthy I have read. I dint expect it to be like a story book written for the kindergarten. It has got easy language, no complicated vocabulary. I am not going to read any other book of hers ever again. But for my kids I would recommend it certainly.I still don't understand why she stopped drinking milk.To know more--- www.whatapoint.blogspot.in
