My Many Trysts with God

My Many Trysts with God


THIS AUTOBIOGRAPHY of a middle-class Tamil Brahmin boy who aspired to excel despite adversity narrates actual incidents and the crisis situations read like a thriller. He self-finances his education completely, and his career arcs from a successful engineer to a distinguished banker. Indeed ‘he touches nothing which he does not adorn’.
His quest for God is the underlying theme of the story. When he loses his beloved father, he forsakes God and employs Nietzsche's dictum of 'Will to Power' to exploit his full potential. At every stage of life, he stands up for the right and fights the wrong, often taking upon himself the might of Authority and brute force. His strong self-belief, and belief in the certitude of success of righteousness, makes him win all such unequal battles. 
His realisation that he had met God innumerable times throughout his journey culminates in this book. It also unobtrusively proves the interdependence in human existence. Young adults will find it a handy guide for man-management and resolving insurmountable crises through sheer self-belief and teamwork.
