    I have found the book to be fascinating and stimulating at the same time. Hardly have I ever read books of such caliber of writing. Your books are an excellent piece of writing even though originally written by Deborah Ellis. The choice of words andway of expression is just अप्रतिम. Again, I would just like to express my deepest thanks that because of you such amazing work could reach millions of people. From the time when I was 12 years old, I`ve read these three books innumerable number of times and yet I find myself crying at certain events. I am sure just the way it has changed my life for the better, it has for others as well. ...Read more

    अतिशय विदारक आणि ह्रदय स्पर्शी लेखन. तीनही पुस्तके सत्य परिस्थिती वाचकांसमोर मांडतात. धर्म माणसाला दिलासा ,धीर देण्यासाठी असतो. पण इथे धर्माच्या, सत्तेच्या, राजकारणाच्या नावाखाली मानवतेचा गळा दाबला जातोय. आणि यात सर्वात जास्त फरपट होतेय ती निरागस लहा मुलांची.विचार करावा अशी पुस्तके. ...Read more

परिवर्तनाची बारा महिने... माणसाला मिळालेल्या आयुष्याला प्रवाहीपणे वरदान लाभले आहे. परंतु, कधी कधी माणूस एखाद्या चक्रव्यूहात अडकत जातो. एव्हाना त्याच्या आयुष्यात आनंद, समाधान, सुख, शांतता हे शब्द त्याला निरर्थक वाटू लागतात. ग्रेचेन रुबिनला पण आयुष्या्या एका विशिष्ट टप्प्यावरती अनपेक्षितपणे वेळेचे महत्त्व अधोरेखित होते आणि तिथून पुढे सुरू होतो त्याच्या आनंदाचा नवा शोध. त्याच परिवर्तनाच्या नांदीला हाताशी ती एक वर्ष हॅपीनेस प्रोजेक्टली वाहून घेते. आनंदी कसे व्हावे याविषयी उपजत आलेले शहाणपण, युगानुयुगाचे संशोधन आणि माहिती यांच्या आधारे तंत्रशुद्ध शिक्षण घेते. हा तिचा बारा महिन्यांचा प्रवास म्हणजे नेमकं काय आहे. त्यात तिने कोणते कोणते प्रयोग केले त्याची रोचक कहाणी म्हणजे आनंदतरंग हे पुस्तक. ...Read more

I picked up this book out of curiosity during my last visit to MPH bookstore in Pune. Before this, I had read `Burnt Shadows` (written by Kamila Shamsie and translated by my daughter Reshma Kulkarni-Pathare), which was a fictional story set on the bakground of Hiroshima. Thus, I was curious to read a non-fictional account of Nagasaki, and this book shook me to the core! The wonderfully written and translated real accounts, makes one shiver in fright and think, whether such a tragedy was really necessary to fuel a few egos? A must-read book for anyone who likes real, non-fictional reading. ...Read more
