Tiny Habits Massive Results by Jaishree Nenwani - No Philosophical Jargons but Practical Solutions

Our life is like a thick jungle. The more we go inside more surprises await us. With simple changes in life and by inculcating basic habits, we can reroute our life to an unprecedentedly smooth path. Tiny Habits Massive Results by Jaishree Nenwani is one book that systematically points out simple habits to bring about massive results. Being a Holistic Wellness Coach myself, I was able to resonate better with the points shared by the author. Mindfulness Being mindful is one habit that I have always advocated in terms of self-development. The author gives the readers a step-by-step directive as to how one can be mindful in all its essence. As simple and easy as it seems mindfulness is not always easy to put into practice.

Cover Reveal: WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU KARTHIK

Cover Reveal: WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU KARTHIK

A charming tale of a young schoolboy trying to find his place in a changing world.

Twelve-year-old Karthik Subramanian has just been granted admission into St George’s, an elite boys’ school in Bangalore that has supported the academic lives of ‘four state cricketers, one India captain, tens of professors, hundreds of doctors, engineers and scientists, thousands of chartered accountants ...’ In this most exalted of institutions, Karthik yearns for recognition as an academic superstar.

Rigorously prepped by his parents and grandfather, dutifully offering his prayers to Lord Ganesha, Karthik steps into this new world. But nothing has prepared him for the challenges that lie in wait and he is left to himself to navigate the cruelties of school life, and the transition into adolescence. The less his family learns about his friends, the better. There are threats all around, even violence.

Brilliant in its observations of a motley cast of characters, and finely calibrated for humor and sadness, What’s Wrong with You, Karthik? is a poignant, exuberant debut from a writer of rare caliber.
