    The Valmiki Syndrome uses the katha format to convey three major messages that are relevant to all humans Striking a balance between professional and personal life is paramount for most of us Some may choose to focus only in one area and that is fine too as long as it is a conscious decision Why a conscious decision? So that later on life when you look back you do not do so regretfully The author's presentation drew me into the book to the extent that I read it way past bedtime son at least 2 nights much to the irritation of the spouse of course While reading the book I found myself reflecting on my life and on how some of the people I have come across would fit into the characters painted so vividly As a youngster when I asked my elders as to why the learning of shlokas by rote and passing it down the ages verbally was seen as an achievement I did not get convincing responses The author provides some answers to thisThe book makes me want to read the Ramayana once again As the author says it has all the answers to the uestions that the reader can have The last time I read it I may not had too many uestions to ask so let me try again

    Since eternity we have been brought up with certain values deeply instilled where our mythological books and Vedic scriptures play a very important role As a child I remember being told that the Bhagwad Gita Ramayana Vedas Puranas etc hold all the secrets of life You name a problem and you will find its solution there The only thing is it might not be spelled out specifically as your answer You have to read it search it and interpret your answers We the children of the 21st century who are used to having everything instant be it food or relationships found this to be a lengthy processIt was not long before this master key to a healthy living was long forgotten The Valmiki Syndrome by Ashok K Banker is a book which makes us uestion a few things about our life and takes us back to our scriptures for their answersTo read the full review please visit

    I give this book three stars simply because Banker did one thing beautifully captured perspective And he did it well enough that there wasn't any way I could root for just one side; I had to swing back and forthThe non fiction part of the book pulls it down big time Why set out to write a book that is supposedly not a self help one and end up preaching to the reader? Why not just let him or her form their own conclusions? What a chance it would have been to hold a beautiful internal philosophical debate And Banker snatches it away from us cruelly and not even elouentlyBut the characters stay long after the book ends Sara Suhasini Ravi And they're very very human Little joys

    Having read Banker's fictional series based on the Ramayana curiosity saw me buying this his first non fiction book It started off pleasantly enough the narrative jumping from character to character almost like a tv serial episode that abruptly switches between locations pausing at a cliffhanger that ensures you hang around even during the commercials After the break however when he wanders into the non fictional non narrative part of it is when the cracks appear Well written though it is it’s not as engaging as his work in fiction nor does it make any new point or even an old point in a new manner

    Saw this book in the library and left it in search for another book Ended up picking this one out because of its title Did not read it for 2 days and one fine evening when i was bored of everything picked this beauty up and started to read Finished in 2 days or less Loved the stories and anybody can relate to them In such times where it is hard to cope up different responsibilities this book can to a certain extent teach how to balance Since the author does not have the answers to every uestion it is upon us to find the answers to the three fundamental uestions After reading the book one will definitely start looking for their answers

    Banker has tried to give a Vedic angle to the 3 eternal uestions of life1 Who am I?2 What do I want to become?3 How can I become that?and tried to explain it very nicely after all that is his forte through different stories and by expressing his views in the middle of the storiesI would rate it as a good read however I was not very happy with it I expected from the book not in terms of the answers to those uestions for sureDetailed review at my blog

    Mr Ashok Banker himself says that he does not have the answers to the uestionsit is for each and everyone to find their own answers The book is average when it comes to the examplesgiven as to how one can achieve what one wantsbut they are very easy oneslifes a lot complicated yes he's put enough disclaimersbut one does except some out of the book Ratnakaran's story is does stand out I am going through my valmiki syndromewhat i call my crossroadsthere was enough torelate to in the book
