From IIM-Ahmedabad To Happiness: For those who have achieved success in life

Front Cover
Vikalp Printers, 2006 - Happiness - 115 pages

 This book is not about academics, not even about success; it is about happiness which we all, in the ultimate analysis, are striving for.

The book is for those who have achieved success in their worldly affairs but hold that their role in life is much bigger than just pushing figures, making strategies, and managing men.

Happiness, the book suggests, resides not in any outside object, but must spring up from within. Man's search for happiness is a search for a lost or hidden article, not of anything new. Each one of us has the power to regain the lost health, vitality and happiness, provided one develops the right faith, attains knowledge and then follows the right path.

Page 77 - The world is ready to give up its secrets if we only know how to knock, how to give it the necessary blow. The strength and force of the blow come through concentration.
