Elements of Life A Living Series by Inderjit Kaur is the second book I have read in the series. This is one of the inspirational read I have come across. I got this book from the author in exchange of an honest review. Lets analyse it deeply :
Cover- The cover surely gives a clue about her important themes which are to be talked in the book. Hence, it fascinates the reader.
Title- Just as elemets of nature work for a proper cycle to be maintained same way, Elements of Life work to make our mind in better way. This is the apt title she came our with.
What the book is about?
Well the book comes under Motivation and Inspiration genre. This book showcase the four elements of life : Air which signifies authenticity; Fire that signifies compassion; Water that signifies courageousness and Earth signifies Gratefulness. These comes under the first section and the author narrates incidents and anecdotes on the base of these elements. The sunject matter revolves arounf this.
The second section includes the JOurnal entries of the author. She focusses on two main things : I Say Yes to Life and Yes, I can. These two parts fills us with new hopes and vibes which help us to forget our hard times. Furthermore, it gives us the strength to move ahead with new spirits and positivity.
The third section includes Rendezvous Reflections where the author has penned down an enthralling poem.
Style – The book is an easy read. The language used is lucid and the author has used pithy style of writing at some places. The narratives are personal as well as impersonal. The descriptions are beautiful. The use of transfer epithets, metaphorical words, allusions, anecdotes, similes makes the reading more fruitful. Every line is a highliter for me and the author’s inspiration towards Paulo Coelho could be noticed as her first page always includes a quote by him :
“And, when you go back, you havw to worry only about the best way of moving forward.”
~Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Other favourites :
“Just enforce the seed of discipline; forge strong self- belief and start scaling success for a very peaceful and beautiful life.”
“Don’t forget that your strength lies in the choices that you make.”
“Socrates once said: THe unexamined life is not worthy living.”
