First of all, I would like to congratulate to The Author Kartik Sharma And Ravi Sharma for writing such a wonderful book. This time also Rupa publication gives us a new gem of a book which is always rated on the top read books list.
The book cover is intriguing and brings a curiosity to read the book. The quest of the sparrow is a captivating and success to draw reader attention which explores the spirituality of life or in other ways shows us the different dimensions of life.
The story starts with three characters i.e Sanjeev, Nikhil and Parthiban. The lead role of the book is Swami Parthiban.
Nikhil and Sanjeev came to the Ashram, in Manmar to seek the peace of mind. After joining the ashram as Guru, Partibhan had taken a completely fresh approach. He believed in practical spirituality. He challenged his followers to consume a tremendous task of Manmar to Ganpatiphule by the walk without money and gadgets. Very few people joined him on this quest and less than 15 finished at the close. Nikhil and Sanjeev’s perspective towards spirituality changed completely after the journey. Throughout their journey, they saw various life-changing lessons of humility and spirituality. I am not proceeding to the full narration as its reveal all things.
While you go through a few pages, you got a grip in the book and tried to read in one go. I complete the book in one read.
