              A personality of Mother Teresa's calibre and global reach does not come about by chance. To provide a well-rounded portrait of this influential figure, this book approaches her in the context of her familial background and ethnic, cultural and spiritual milieus. Her life and work... are explored in the light of newly-discovered information about her family, the Albanian nation's spiritual tradition before and after the advent of Christianity, and the impact of the Vatican and other influential powers on her people since the early Middle Ages. Focusing on her traumas, ordeals and achievements as a private individual and a public missionary, and her complex spirituality, this book contends that Mother Teresa's life and her nation's history, especially her countrymen's relationship with Roman Catholicism, are interconnected. Unravelling this interconnectedness is essential to understanding how this modern spiritual and humanitarian icon has come to epitomise her ancient nation's cultural and spiritual DNA.

              Death brings the young woman back to the Faroes, the windswept rocky islands of the north where she has never lived but which she has always called home. There she finds her stories entwining with those of her ancestors as she searches for a way to connect with Faroese culture. B...ut is home just a place name, or something more? Island is a literary tale of exile and homecoming, split across three generations of a Faroe islands family, strongly inspired by the author's own family history. It is a beautiful story of emigration and immigration, and of what it means to belong.

              Many Everests: An Inspiring Journey of Transforming Dreams into Reality (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              As the first IAS officer to climb the world's tallest peak, Ravindra Kumar in this book has presented Mount Everest as a symbol of life's problems beyond the limit of a physical barrier. Introducing the innovative technique of 'Advanced Positive Visualisation', the author explain...s how the various Everests of life can be conquered with this success key. Kumar has tested the impact of this technique personally and has achieved many feats-starting from his selection in the prestigious IIT entrance examination to his selection in the premier Civil Services Examination and becoming an IAS officer after working at sea for many years and, thereafter, climbing the highest peak of the world in his maiden attempt. It is through his life journey and after analysing its impact, the author has presented to the reader the innate power lying dormant in the human mind. Kumar's claim is based on the fact that our brain catches the image of anything before any other sensory perception like speech, hearing, smell, touch, etc. Although this is a daily phenomenon we don't notice it. The author has not only documented his observation from day-to-day life but has also explained it scientifically by connecting the dots of old as well as modern scientific researches, including Einstein's theory of relativity, findings by yogis, experiments on human brain by modern research centres such as Harvard Medical School, Leningrad Military Laboratory, etc. He has explained this technical subject in a simple lucid language to be understood by all. By demonstrating the miraculous effect of this technique in the lives of ordinary people through the example of his life, the author explains to the readers, and in the process motivates them on how, despite life's vicissitudes, one can achieve one's dreams.

              Small Steps To Big Reading: Converting Non-Readers into Readers (Paperback)

              This book intends to motivate non-regular readers to overcome previously held inhibitionsabout reading and not let past experiences keep them away from the gift of reading. There is a deliberate attempt at illustrating the book with plenty of illustrations to tempt word-phobic re...aders. It helps simplify the reading process and urges the reader through simple techniques to approach reading in a manner that enhances comprehension. This entails giving up some deeply entrenched old habits that are counterproductive and equipping ourselves with better skills. To achieve this, beyond just tips, the book also provides physical tools that help the reader overcome old habits like regression, lack of preview, subvocalizing, slow reading, and self-doubt. It also helps the reader to rise above the bare minimum reading limited to their subject and become flexible readers capable of changing gears when required. The benefits of being well read and being able to fight guilt are also highlighted with the intention that having completed this book urges the non- regular reader to continue in their quest of more fulfilling reading. This book intends to help people acquire an altered approach to reading so that parents and significant caretakers in the lives of young learners do not inadvertently demotivate budding readers. An investment of 100 minutes of your time could make a positive change in how you read and what you do hereafter.
