Couple of years back, I reluctantly went to Kungfu Panda along with my son. I became a fan of Kungfu panda after that and whenever I get a chance, I watch that movie and it has had a lasting impact on me.
That is the case with this book as well.
This is a very easy read, and you are sure to complete the book in thirty minutes. But I can guarantee that this simple book will leave a profound impact on you , as it did for me. I keep going back to the book, whenever I can.
This is a book, you should read aloud to yourself, your kids, and possibly with all your family.
I got introduced to the book by Professor Ramnath Narayanswamy of IIMB when I had taken the Creativity, Reinvention and Self Development.
The author brilliantly captures the struggle of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly and subtly bring out similarities in our day to day life.
Find below an interesting conversation from the book
“How does one become a butterfly” she asked pensively.
“You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar”
“You mean to die?”, asked yellow, remembering the three who fell out of the sky.
“Yes and No”, he answered.
“What looks like you will die but what’s really you will still live. Life is changed, not taken away.
Isn’t it different from those who die without ever becoming butterflies”
So if you want to know what it takes to be a butterfly or possibly what it takes you to fly, just give thirty minutes of your undivided attention to this book.
It is impossible that you will not be influenced by it.
Enjoy Maadi (Have Fun)
