Title- The Breakthrough
Author- Ms. Megha Bajaj
Publisher -Rupa Publications
I got this book from school. I was excited to read a book with collection of breakthroughs.
This is a tremendous book written by Ms. Megha Bajaj. It is so good that it can trigger positive thoughts among the readers. The 11 trailblazers are the stars in the book. The book explains neatly each trailblazer’s hard work and also each breakthrough carries a moral too. The words are simple to read and also the book tells how they have inculcated the ability to handle things.
Let me share a ‘breakthrough’ among the 11, which I have read about. The person’s name is Nitin Nyati, born in Pune, in a lower middle class family, sharing a single toilet among hundreds of family. His school was 15Km away from home. He cherished every moment of life, even in poverty. He had experienced five decades of challenges in his life. In his teenage he worked in a second hand clothes shop. He was keen about his education and worked hard for it. Being influenced by his father’s friend Mr. Shinde, he decided to become an engineer. Completed his graduation with lots of struggles. As a
fresher he worked for a prestigious project of Kubera Chambers, built as headquarter for government officials working for MIDC and WIDC. The project became the land mark soon, because of its grand structure and design. The way he was handling each and every project was stumbling. He got trapped in a scam case and the way he came out of it, was a nail biting history to read. He is familiar to the Pune people because the way he designed buildings are
spectacular and he by himself is a wonderful man. The same way author had narrated the breakthrough experiences of 11 persons. I really feel very proud to share here that among them our correspondent Mrs. Chitra Pasad is also one.
The recommended age group for this book is 9 years +
I recommend 5 stars* for this book.
I learnt to be more sportive and self-confident. I realized obstacles won’t stay before us for longer time, and they can be dissolved by our positive thoughts .
We learn to face challenges.
We learn to take life as it flows.
Believing in ourselves makes miracles.
