Category: 1 – Read ASAP! (All Categories are 1 – Read ASAP!, 2 – BUY it!, 3 – SHELF it, 4 – SOMEDAY it)

Comments: This books needs no review but just in case you haven’t read it, I hope you do. If you are a movie person, Oprah Winfrey’s done us a great favor by making a lovely 100 minute odd movie out of it as well! The link to the first part of 11 is here. I’ve watched the movie 5 times till date and would not hesitate watching it again soon..

What to expect: A reflective and philosophical journey. The story is a real life tale of a student who has built a career as a successful journalist and all of a sudden sees his old university Professor, his first real mentor and inspiration, on TV being interviewed as he’s fighting a deadly disease. Morrie Schwartz, his professor, on the other hand is on a mission to make the most of what remains of his life and after much deliberation thanks to not having kept in touch for 16 years, Mitch decides to go down and meet his Professor. And it’s then that Morrie teaches his last lesson, a lesson in life..

  1. I love this book so much!! It is such an eye-opener to the more important things in life. The best thing about Morrie is how he is not afraid to be himself. Whenever we do anything, we always think of what others will say. Being able to accept yourself for who you are and appreciating what you have is a trait we all should develop.

      1. I would recommend you to read Sudha Murthy’s travelogues-“Wise and otherwise” and “The Old Man and his God”. The contrasts she draws between people from diametrically opposite backgrounds makes for very interesting reading. I believe you will like them.
