My Verdict : “Kaleidoscope,Colours of life” is the third masterpiece by Inderjit Kaur.The art of living life to its fullest extent by adapting to its profound variations is the ultimate formula behind a sorted mind .It is no magic but the willful incorporation of simple logic with a tinge of patience in it,which is the universal solution to cumbersome difficulties that life throws at us.No matter how much intense the problem might be but having a sturdy self reliance always puts you forward,a step or two towards overcoming the predicament.All such motivational elements has been very beautifully portraited through her final creation,”Kaleidoscope,Colours of Life”.
The book is categorised into two parts.
The first half,’Part A-Rainbow’ comprises of seven inspiring short stories based on real life experiences from author’s life along with motivational plots,that gradually boosts our inner self to take a step,initiate a move towards betterment.As the saber gradually sharpens after being harnessed,so do our character and thought processes as we face real life situations.Thus,the author has related the attributes of our character to the virtues of ethereal hues of a rainbow.Its only after a heavy shower that the rainbow comes to existence.Similarly,it is only the hardships in life that guides one and enriches oneself spiritually to overcome the dark phases and shine like a rainbow in the azure firmament.
In ‘Part B- Contrast and Hues’ of the book the Author has embedded her positive approach and moral preachings to illuminate her readers outlook towards life. A collection of thirty eight moral principles focusing on motivation,encouragement,positive outlook,personal development,goals and lessons learned in life constitutes the major aspect of this half of the book.Moreover,the readers are also bestowed with the opportunity to apprehend the precious excerpts of enthusiastic people,from different fields of life, which is one of the plus points if the book.
Realisation is the initiation. However, implementation is vital.Hence,at the very culmination of the book the author hasn’t forgot to remention the power of a little patience,the power to face hardships in life,the power to push ones self up to his extreme,in his darkest nightmares and transmogrify himself through implementations of these worthy principles. Thats all the author truly wanted to decipher from her creation,”Kaleidoscope – Colours of Life”.
Frankly,it’s the best literary creation by Inderjit Kaur so far and is a treat to everyone for it will provide you with a mystical vision to witness life from a rare angle of positivity where, ‘ Life is Beautiful ‘ in every aspect of living.
