Lucknow : ‘Life Mantras’ – An exhaustive and thought-provoking book by Subrata Roy Sahara, founder and chairman of the Sahara India Group, on his life-time experiences, observations, as well as his insights on the day-to-day issues of people, was simultaneously released at 5,120 special public events across India on Monday.
‘Life Mantras’ is the first book in the ‘Thoughts from Tihar’ trilogy. The forthcoming books are ‘Think with Me – How to make our country ideal’, and ‘Reflections from Tihar – A book on Tihar Jail’. They are also likely to appear on book shelves soon.
‘Life Mantras’ reflects Subrata Roy’s psychological and emotional mindset.
He says: “To achieve peace and happiness, to attain continuous progress, you need not depend on anybody in this world. It all depends on you. It is all in your hands.”
He further elucidates: “To make life truly beautiful, one also needs to understand the basic truths with which we are born, or the basic instincts inherent in us all. As you get immersed in the potent energy of these ‘Life Mantras’, you will experience change, a sense of fulfilment. You will thus be led to the ultimate realization that the journey of life is indeed a truly blissful and an enlightening experience.”
Roy heads a group of over 1.2 million fellow workers. The Harvard School of Business, the Indian Institutes of Technology, the Indian Institutes of Management, and Banaras Hindu University have all invited him to address and inspire their faculties and students in the past.
He has been the recipient of several awards, including the ‘Indian Business Icon of the Year’ at the Powerbrands Hall of Fame Awards in London (UK); the Doctor of Business (Honoris Causa) by the University of East London, and the highest honorary degree, ‘D. Litt.’ by the Lalit Narayan Mithila University, Bihar.
