Do experiences in your life influence your perspective about your future?

Life is a wonderful gift to mankind. Provided you live it, love it, and cherish it with great exuberance and a positive mindset. It’s impossible to write without being influenced in some way by your life experiences, whether intentionally or otherwise. But one has to mine value from these experiences rather than be blindly led by them. Serving for more than 36 years in three different uniforms, experiencing various ups and downs, different terrains, altitudes, and places: it was more than an exhilarating odyssey. The interaction with varied personalities, colleagues, mentors, friends, and subordinates moulded his attitude to face enormous challenges and, at times, adversities coming his way with confidence in the right frame of my mind. As a medical professional in Armed Forces, Surgeon Captain Mohan experienced many unusual events that possibly very few medicos could ever imagine. He survived the brush with death three times. Maybe it was his destiny, but each experience added to his confidence and prepared him to take on further challenges pretty smoothly in life. His knack for rolling into adventures helped him accept a few dangerous assignments head-on and come out of them with laurels. Here in this book, you go onto a rollercoaster ride, reading those selected genuine experiences that made his life more than a celebration.
