A Fresh Start

Professor Chandra Follows His Bliss by Rajeev Balasubramanyam is a novel about a man about to turn seventy who attends a retreat in California which helps him change his life.

For the majority of his life, Professor Chandra, an intellectual economics expert has been focused on all the wrong things – mainly achieving success in his field. As the story begins, we find him divorced, living alone in England. His ex-wife is remarried, his youngest daughter is on drugs and lives with her mother and the new husband, his son is a high powered guru of sorts living in Japan, and his oldest daughter refuses to have any contact with her father. Basically, Chandra’s former family is in shambles.

A two-day oceanside retreat prompts the professor to make changes in the way he perceives his life and his core values. He then begins a journey which will hopefully change everything for the better.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story! I don’t know much about economics, but I glossed over whatever made little sense to me in that regard. Overall, I came away with a positive outlook and a sense of gratitude for having read it. This is a book with a message and it’s a good one! Highly recommended!
