Book Review: Love Has Its Various Ways By Divya Kapoor

e

Love Has Its Various Ways By Divya Kapoor

Author : Divya Kapoor
Genre : Inspiration
Publisher : Balboa Press - A Division Of Hay House

Books Epigram -
One of the best ever works to enable all those who aspire to become their own life coach!
The chapters in this masterpiece are the stages of life, which everyone goes through. They have been written with the insight that the author has got through while experiencing life.
The book concludes with an eleven-day workbook, a self-working step-by-step approach to transform life.
Just do it to bring about the desired transformation in the healthiest way possible!

My Critique -
This is the best Self-Help book I have read till date which helps you to realise your inner self. Its written with ease that keep you inspired and dont offer any sanity discourse which is best thing about the read. The workbook in the end is very helpful if you follow it. Its surely a guide towards success by invoking your inner potential. 

The book comprises of 18 chapters of author’s experiences from life and how she dealt with failure, break-ups, relationship mess and society. With every experience she grow stronger and became more focused about her own calling. Her never dying spirit got her through depression and made her heal her issues. 

The book comes with an eleven days workbook of self- practice. Author’s main motive is to motivate you to follow the right path to achieve success. The workbook is your journey to make things happen with new learnings.

Beautiful Poem depicting essence of the book:

In the hum-drum of my life,
when I felt lost, and my vision became blurred,
a light within me shined.
That light was a spark
but it had the intensity to Light my way.
It had the intensity to embrace love within me and
allow me to trust it.
Soon, the noise stopped there was nothing in the Background.
I only had a light shining beautifully in me and guiding me.
There wasn’t any rush nor any lust for accomplishments
As the light was shining with intensity enough to see the universe within me!
As I could see the universe inside me I felt detached to the world and
once again gained the Clarity and intelligence I was born with.
I celebrated in my own being;
I danced with the virtue of God and trusted the light to blaze my path.
In the darkest moments of my life the god lifted me and guided me.
I regained the intelligence I was born with.
It was the reunion with the nine months old me
In my mother's womb, which was much more intelligent than me.
The wisdom I had possessed in my mother's womb seems
To guide me to be a greater me.
It seemed to tell me
That neither I was these shackles nor these accomplishments;
All I am is a pure light, which is here to help and guide people.
That spark just made me realize my life purpose and that
I wasn't the person defined by my parents rather just a
"Pure Bliss"

The book title just conveys the whole ideology of the book and author very clearly explains its revelance with the book at the very start. The writing style is very simple and her perspective adds a whole new dimension to every chapter. Each and every chapter is so perfectly written with very beautiful and coherent fables and her own life experience. The 11 days worbook is amazing and very helpful. The techniques described are unique and deals with our short-comings straight through and its very effective. 

The book definitely fulfilled its purpose and will surely continue to do the same for years to come. Its a must read to know your inner potential to fight day to day chaos and leads towards success.

This Fun Food Festival for children was started by Pilcrow Communications in 2015, with the aim of making food 'fun' for children and thus bringing about a transformation in their eating habits. It has been designed keeping little ones and their parents/caregivers in mind with fun workshops, interesting information, exciting activities and cool contests. Founders of Pilcrow Ratika van Noord Bhatnagar and Rohini Mathur share a closer look - “We don't say “don't eat candy” but focus on balance, to achieve what Popeye has with spinach. Through this festival, we also hope to raise awareness about some relevant concerns around food today, such as lifestyle diseases, proper hygiene, waste segregation and much more”.

Keeping the increasing number of young visitors in mind, some interesting new activities have been introduced, while retaining the most popular zones from last year.

McVitie’s, a well known brand amongst the health enthusiasts across the country, is now widening its consumer base to become a household brand name with its play in the taste led segments of biscuits.

Children can also take a journey through the “Edible Routes - Food Cycle” starting with the story of a seed, sowing it, harvesting, processing and finally composting the waste to be used again in sowing.

Children have always been fascinated by both science and cooking. This year we bring them together with a new zone run by the same name “Science and Cooking” where you can see for yourself why there’s a difference in pancakes and crepes.
