Legacy: Letters from Eminent Parents to their Daughters

The best book I ever read

There is a popular saying 'some books are to be tasted, some to be swallowed, yet there are some to be chewed and digested.' The book 'Legacy' belong to the third category. It is a kind of book which I was in search of, which is capable of transforming our 'self'.

Sudha Menon, the author accomplished a remarkable greatness by selecting personalities who are 'star wars' in their own realms and persuading them to open their heart and write their life's message to their daughters.

Though the title is meant for only daughters, I feel that this is a book which has to be read by everyone. Gender is nothing but the creation of man, and there is no difference ultimately when the question is about the purpose of life.

The letters are so deep woven with the hardships and sophistications, that made me to realize a fact. There is a story in every individual and we learn the greatest lessons of life when we commit humble mistakes. They also narrates vividly about the intricate tenderness in human relationships. They emphasis the power of love and necessity in being actively oriented in things which give us satisfaction. That may be ridiculed by public, but we will be recognized only when we are different and we can visualize what others cannot. More over, the book strongly recommends an unconditional passion for life. Each day is remarkable in its own way, its only up to us to make it worthy.

I cannot thank the author, but I am grateful to her book, which gave me better insights about life. I learned to become more observing, patient and passive to the lessons of life beyond our daily conditioning.

The book 'Legacy' is worth to read since it motivates us to leave a legacy with our life to our survivors.
