Reviews for Only One Life to Give

I found it so fascinating that in one go I finished it from first page to last page. The constant theme which, as you would see from this title, is that there is truly only one life to give. If you have to give, give it in this life, don’t wait for the next. That comes across in every story.

There is so much that is good, food for thought, to think about and – what is my purpose, is there something that one can do. These are some of the questions that automatically come to you, not that somebody dictates to you, but the poser that he puts across to you with the stories, is itself a challenge to you, that look there is only one life to give.

It touched my heart. …..It is written with heart, it’s a wonderful book on values and qualities we should imbibe and the way the stories have been told is absolutely wonderful.

– Shri Sanjay Lalbhai, Chairman and MD-Arvind Ltd.

I am feeling rather embarrassed that you have put me on the same page (pedestal) as your father – I can’t ever stand comparison with him with all his sterling qualities practiced (not preached) in real life under adverse circumstances. Men of that caliber do not exist today.

– Air Mshl (Retd) P.M.Ramachandran.PVSM AVSM SC VM, Former  Vice Chief of the Air Staff, IAF

The Indian Trinity – of Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram – Truth, Goodness and Beauty – asserts itself in each story.

– Professor R.N.Kaul, Professor of English & Controller of Examinations-Kashmir University (Retd.)


While reading through them, you re-live the events as if you were present with Mr. Kaul.
