Being Ritu by Satya Saran - A Touching Biography

 To be born to a celebrity family and to make a mark of one's own is never an easy job. Meet Ritu Nanda, daughter of the legendary actor Raj Kapoor. The apple of the eye of Kapoor family. 

Being Ritu

The book is not a biography of Ritu Nanda. It is a reflection of humility, willpower, affection, care and selflessness. 

Ritu, despite being born in an aristocratic family, has always been humble. Her down to earth nature is what her friends and college mates could recollect on the mention of her name. The endearing childhood anecdotes will bring smile to our faces. Though streched tad bit overboard, they reflect the real Ritu.

Further, marriage to the Nanda family, kids, entrepreneurial ventures, being an insurance advisor. The lady has donned all the caps with a golden feather. 

The book is also a reflection of how we could fight death and diseases with sheer will power. Be it auto.immune disease or cancer, she faught it with a smile. While reading about how she has met the deadly disease head on, I genuinely wanted to meet her talk to her. I wanted to know how she has been so optimistic. I wanted to know where she derived her inner strength from. I just wanted too see her for once and hug her.


  1. Ritu's life is such an inspiring one. Though born literally with a silver spoon, she led a life filled withhumility. The book seems to capture the essence of her life and sounds inspiring.

  2. Inspirational people and books on them are worth a read. It opens up new ways to think different in life getting inspired by them .I wish to read this book

  3. An intriguing read about a woman who made a name for herself without the help of her parents or siblings. This book seems to be an inspiration. Thanks for this review Rakhi; I wish to read this.

  4. I love autobiographies of well known people because i have come to see that they are also human fighting similar struggles as we do as not so well known people.

  5. Lovely review! Truly being born with a silver spoon doesn't always mean not having problems in life. She might not have any problems with money but finding her own identity is another thing that isn't easy to handle. I'm glad she was able to overcome and stand up with grace and be know as well for being herself and who is really is and not just a shadow of her family's background.-MommyWithAGoal
