Lessons Unlearned

Author Name: Vinod Kumar Nagpal | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

In his debut book, Vinod Kumar Nagpal, the author, takes us back to the early 1960s. This is the story of a child who is gullible, inquisitive, and curious about nature, religion, and God while he is still five years old. He poses a lot of questions to his father about mythology, religion, God, and the partition of Bharat, as his parents migrated from Western Punjab of the then undivided Bharat at the time of partition of the country. His father narrates a lot of incidences/mythological stories to his young son and also shares with him painful memories of partition and his struggles thereafter. Incidences/stories told by his father carry many good lessons. But because of his careless nature and aversion to studies, he does not pay heed to those lessons and suffers as a consequence. When he grows up, he realizes his mistakes and tries to re-learn those lessons which he had unlearned. Is he able to resurrect his life?

A must-read to recollect childhood memories and get nostalgic. The book also discusses what God wants from us, what the actual meaning of religion is, and how one must conduct oneself.

Vinod Kumar Nagpal

Sixty-five-year-old Vinod Kumar Nagpal is a retired dy. general manager of a nationalized bank. He lives in Vadodara, Gujarat. He was born and brought up in Rewari, Haryana. He is a voracious reader and is also a keen observer of the body language and behavioral patterns of human beings. He loves Mother Nature, wants to know more about spiritualism as well as philosophy, and is always eager to know the real purpose of life. Though he has been writing about the philosophy of life and poetry since he was eighteen, Lessons Unlearned is his debut book. He got the inspiration for his book from his father when he told him about the true story of a Hindu girl who was abducted at the time of partition, when her family was running away from Western Punjab to Eastern Punjab to save their lives. He strongly believes that if he is honest and truthful with himself, he need not visit any religious place and it is within him that God resides along with Satan.
