My preview of this great book. I fully agree with NVP. Life is full of trials and tribulations. One need to be calm and be resigned to will of God or Lord.Have staunch faith on yourself. Else you will falter, surrendering to God is saintly and God always tests your mettle. So Life leads you in. Never give up your calmness and everything will fall in place if your efforts are rea;;y honest and sincere. tks n regds. Dr.G.Balakrisnhan PhD LL.M.
