The account of how her mother's advice to save money came in handy when she wanted to help her husband start a software company, and the heart-warming tale of the promise she made-and fulfilled to her grandfather, to ensure that her little village library would always be well supplied with books. You could've not done this kind of mistake as a very popular brand of Indian Scooter was named as a tribute to this very horse. The book teaches valuable lessons about courage of conviction and executing things that you feel you ought to do from within.

The book is not a great book, but will always be close to my heart for the various small stories that touched upon the humane aspects. The book is simple and easy to read with no complications , The book is themed around various morals suitable for children and youngsters , that does not mean the book is not meant for grown ups , Its refreshing to go through the stories especially when you have hard time and you dont wanna have faith in humanity and society , The book kindles the optimism in you and reminds of altruism , inspiring others and things that matters to one most than money. Sudha Murty being an author, teacher and a social worker comes across with many people with different way of thinking and unique mindsets. Baffling at first, the experience of living and coming through this strange request changed the child s mind forever. I picked up this book, just for a break from usual reading , as short stories is something that i like to switch over to at times.She has been awarded the Raja-Lakshmi Award, and the Padma Shri award for her contribution in the spheres of social work, charity and philanthropy. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). If the author had cut down on the self glorification and the self appraisal on every second page, this book. I felt a strong underlying ubiquitous humble bragging across the book regarding herself or her family which appeared to be somewhat compulsive, and sadly that diminished my opinion considerably. The horse's name was ' Chetak' And not ' Chetan', something South Indians conveniently forget or overlook in the history of North Indians.

These stories make you laugh, cry, and most importantly, they instil in us a sense of responsibility and commitment toward the people in our society. The book is more than a story, as it carries a motivational facet and probably the valuable teachings of life. Her grandparents, themselves being illiterate, put all their effort into teaching their children and grandchildren .

Funny, spirited and inspiring, each of these stories teaches a valuable lesson about the importance of doing what you believe is right and having the courage to realize your dreams. The language used is simple and this makes it easily understandable and approachable to young readers. A very delicate and beautifully written book, you feel how honest and truthful it is, and that it comes from the heart of the author.
