THE BOOK GIVES A CLEAR IDEA ABOUT THE NECESSITY OF SELF RELIANCY AND THE ADVENTURES IN OUR LIFE .THE NOVEL IS A CLEAR VISION OF OUR DEPENDENCE ON OTHERS . IT GIVES MOTIVATION AND INSPIRATION TO THE CYBER WORLD TO EXPLORE THE WORLD OUT OF THE TEXTBOOKS AND TO LEARN FROM THE NATURE. IT ENRICHES ONE WITH DETERMINATION AND SELF CONFIDENCE .ONE COULD ATTAIN ALL THE QUALITIES TO LIVE AND SURVIVE FROM THIS BOOK . IT GIVES POWER AND HOPE EVEN TO THE DESPERATES.
