With Yuva Bharat, this young achiever makes a mark once again, compelling us to ask ourselves the vital question, 'What are we choosing in our lives today? Fear or faith?'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity.. These immortal lines of Charles Dickens perhaps aptly describe everything Yuva Bharat reflects. In an uncanny reflection of the times we are living in while this book is being released, it talks about what the world needs to read right now. For these are the times of COVID-19. These are the times when 'normal' has been redefined. Author Devir traces the journey of 69 young men and women who defined their own 'new normal'. He talks about people whose worlds collapsed way before COVID-19 had hit us and who emerged victorious against undefinable odds-people of sheer grit who did not need legs to win races; people who vested their faith in the unseen; or people who rose from the ashes like the proverbial phoenix. Some of the remarkable stories include the struggles, learnings and indomitable passions of Rajkummar Rao, Kiren Rijiju, Aditi Rao Hydari, Remo D'souza, Abhinav Bindra and Chitrangada Singh, among many others, who each went on to excel in their own craft. Yuva Bharat encompasses these tales of overcoming all odds and achieving success eventually. A compelling narrative, it takes us through life journeys and inspires us to get up in this instant and take charge of our lives. A straight shot of adrenaline, Devir gives us our carpe diem moment!Immensely inspiring and powerfully gripping, Yuva Bharat: The Heroes of Today is a collection of stories of a few men and women who emerged victorious in the face of severe adversities, thus revealing the power of mind over matter.
