So often, it’s the simplest acts of courage that touch the lives of others. Sudha Murty-through the exceptional work of the Infosys Foundation as well as through her own youth, family life and travels-encounters many such stories . . . and she tells them here in her characteristically clear-eyed, warm-hearted way. She talks candidly about the meaningful impact of her work in the devadasi community, her trials and tribulations as the only female student in her engineering college and the unexpected and inspiring consequences of her father’s kindness. From the quiet joy of discovering the reach of Indian cinema and the origins of Indian vegetables to the shallowness of judging others based on appearances, these are everyday struggles and victories, large and small. Unmasking both the beauty and ugliness of human nature, each of the real-life stories in this collection is reflective of a life lived with grace. A must-read for children and everyone alike. 


Great book and highly recommended. Simple bravery frequently has the greatest impact on other people's lives. Through the excellent work of the Infosys Foundation as well as her own youth, family life, and travels, Sudha Murty encounters many such stories. Here, she shares them in her recognisable clear-eyed, kind manner. She is open and honest about the significance of her work with the devadasi community, the difficulties she had as the sole female student at her engineering college, and the surprising and motivating effects of her father's generosity. These are small and major wins that we experience on a daily basis, from the peaceful satisfaction of learning about the breadth of Indian movies and the roots of Indian veggies to the shallowness of judging others based on appearances.
