R u thinking that Mahabharata is too old to make sense today...just read this book and analyse your day at office!
I recommend this book to people in corporate world as it would help them break the cognitive thinking trap!
The author, Meghdoot Karnik, has made a great attempt at writing this book as it is not a regular self-help book about the work or business life, but it details the situation out with explanations and situations from the Mahabharata itself. As the author mentions in the book, "Take any situation in regular life, and you will find it in the Mahabharata.", the stories written by him prove the same. The book has 8 stories in all, which talk about different problems, difficulties, decision making dilemma in one's corporate life and when the characters of the stories cannot in a fix, the situation is related to a similar one from the Mahabharata and a probable solution is being explored.
If you have already read the Mahabharata, DRONACHARYA At The Workplace And Other Short Stories will definitely be an interesting perspective and a read for you. I will recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the reading comparative mythology, remember this is not a regular self-help book, though it classifies as one, but a book that will help you discover the invisible thought power of the Indian epic, Mahabharata.
You simply get hold of the book and read it.
What if the book is very interesting and very well written.
Then you read on and you just can't keep the book down and you finish reading the book soon.
Well, I am talking about the book "Dronacharya" written by Meghdoot Karnik. The author in his debut book has absolutely nailed it. He has truly hit it out of the park. I am sure this is just a beginning and we can expect many more books from him over the next few years. Move over Devdutt Patnaik and Ashwin Sanghi. Meghdoot has arrived and how!!!! Well, it's too early to say "move over" but I can certainly say that Meghdoot has created a space for himself with his style of writing.
To talk a little bit about the book, Meghdoot has through some of the stories from the Mahabharat illustrated how those stories are still very much relevant from the point of view of the current corporate world. Be it a recent grad starting a new job or be it an experienced top management professional, the book illustrates how the Mahabharat can teach us all so many valuable lessons. While linking the short stories from the Mahabharat to the corporate world, you can see the combination of Meghdoot the author, combined with Meghdoot the teacher brilliantly connecting the dots and presenting a wonderful picture in front of the reader. I guess all of us in the corporate life go through different stages, esometimes maybe as a young warrior like Abhimanyu or sometimes as an experienced stalwart like Dronacharya. This book is for all those who are part of the corporate world and maybe find themselves in different situations like the characters in the book.
If you have liked reading the Mahabharat, you would love how the Mahabharata stories are used in the context of the present day corporate life. If you have not read the Mahabharat, then I am sure you will be inclined to do so after reading the book. Once you start reading this book, you don't feel like keeping it down. Mind you, I read the Book in 3 days and that too reading it only during my travel from home to office and back. The point is, the book so good, it leaves you craving for more. I sincerely hope that the author is working on Dronacharya part II and part III drawing more stories from the Mahabharat and linking it to the today's corporate world.
To cut a long story short, please do yourself a favour and go and get this book. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
It helps in understanding a situation in a novel and interesting way. Also gives us more ways of tackling the same situation.
