This one book I wanted to read for a long time and never knew that my daughter has it:)..so when I came here I started reading it. It is about the psychology of love,traditional values and spiritual growth.The writer is a psychiatrist , so he explores the ideas from every angle.
Few things I have always believed in and when I saw them written here, I loved, they are.....
Love is not simply giving, its judicial giving and judicial withholding.
True love leads to spiritual growth.and anything that doesnt make for growth is not true love.
Branding of quality time is not worth it, children need quantity time also.
Most of the problems of personality have their roots in childhood and relate to parents.
Wherever we are in our life its always because of us not anybody else.
Many problems in life can be solved if delaying gratification is practiced,quoting the book.........delaying gratification is a process of scheduling the pain and pleasure of life in such a way as to enhance the pleasure by meeting and experiencing the pain first and getting it over with.
over all this is an awesome book and worth a two or three read:)
Story is based in srilanka in the days of turmoil, didnt find worth it...
