Book Title: The Valmiki Syndrome
Desc:

Maxing our career is our 'dharma' in this age of Kali. But at what cost? Working parents don't see enough of their children, couples barely spend time with each other, young men and women become strangers to their families and friends and here's the irony most of us mention our families and loved ones as the main reason for why we strive towards success, without realizing that we stand to lose them in this very quest. So how do we strike a balance between our careers and our families? In his first major work of non-fiction, bestselling author Ashok K. Banker goes back to Puranic sources to address this question. He writes of Ratnakaran the bandit, who made a living out of killing and looting to support his family and his transformation into Valmiki, the sage. Using his story and contemporary stories from today, he shows us how they contain the answers to today's most pressing issue: How to prioritize, manage and enhance our personal as well as professional lives. Insightful, thought-provoking and utterly inspiring. The Valmiki Syndrome is a map to the most elusive treasure of modern existence personal fulfilment.
