Books have been the biggest source of inspiration around the world. India has a long-standing history of producing some of the best scripters and highly knowledgeable authors who have penned life changing books.
And one the recently launched Book “SearchingMyself.com”, written by Dr Ekta Singh, explores human psychology and philosophy of life. This is the first book by Ekta Singh, a resident of Sector-61, a doctor by profession.
She believes that the real objective of the book is to convey messages that have the potential to make life happier and healthier. In it, she has engraved the problems of highly educated youth by adding the story of youth belonging to different backgrounds.
The core idea of the book starts with a question, ‘what do we want to achieve in our life?’ This question has been asked during a discussion among the group of few youngsters; an IITian, a yoga instructor, a medical student, an MBA, a student of BA second year and a gynaecologist, she added.
The book goes into three segments; first, morning sessions, having the discussions about few basis aspects of life among the fore-mentioned aspirants. Second, college campus, having the glimpses of life of a medical college campus along with a well-connected story of a inter college basketball tournament. Third is a diary writing by Kundan including the gist of his daily learning.
She has emphasized on spirituality with a scientific approach, so that he can live a happy life by coordinating career, family and relationships. The book’s purpose is to convey messages that have the potential to make life happier and healthier.
While she excelled in her studies, her mind veered around subjects which were more akin to existential questions. Why don’t we teach about the nature of the self? Why does misery and sorrow follow without discrimination on all beings? What is death? How does the mind deal with such distress? All these were questions that needed answers, yet, she wanted a scientific basis to such answers.
According to her, this book is not only for those who have faith and love for the unseen power. It is rather for likeminded friends, for whom faith is not independent of logic and evidence. This book is her quest in that dry path.
She believes in empowerment and dignity of human life. This book is must-read for those who dangle between rationality and spirituality, without being able to accept either.
