- Suktisudha – The Elixir of Adages
Caught in the rat-race of today’s hustle-bustle, modern man has little time for poems, prayers and parables to bolster his views.
This is where adages or proverbs come in handy for everyone. Whether it is the soldier standing guard on an inclement glacier, a CEO addressing a boardroom meeting, a lover loading his epistle with romantic overtones, a student debating on a podium, a preacher delivering a landmark sermon or a politician addressing a rally, they take recourse to pithy sayings to pack their messages with punch.
How often has a timely and apt quote not uplifted a pathetic person, saved a relationship, nay, altered destinies and histories round the world!
This book is an English translation of Sanskrit adages, culled from traditional sources and everyday wisdom.
So, as you traverse through the rocks, rivers and rubble of life, may the adages console, counsel and comfort you.
