Summary of the Book

Set in the twenty-first century, the modern era, where most people are busy with their daily chores and gadgets, and hardly have any time for self-realization, this story is based on a similar young character. He was different in the sense that he was aware of this problem.

The real story, describes how he underwent a sudden change in his thought process after the quakes of November 12th, 2013. The new thought process, which made his life simpler, brought with it plenty of happiness. The happiness ignited in him a strange desire to write a book. In the book, he mentions descriptions of some of his ‘post-quake’ days, the negativities and dilemmas which he occasionally faced as a teenager, how he overcame them and how the quakes changed his perspective towards life. He illustrates how introspection can bring a beautiful change in life.

But excess of anything is bad – this holds true for happiness too. It created a new dilemma for him: Was it some enlightenment, or was it insanity?
