Reflections: A Collection of Essays on Life, Happiness, Roots, and Responsibility. This book is a collection of heart-warming and inspirational essays that gently urge the readers to reflect on the important matters in their lives as well as on some of the significant issues facing society in general. The author draws on his background as an immigrant from India, and writes about the experiences growing up in his home country, as well as those as a student and an engineer working in the U.S. He combines his artistic, philosophical, and scientific talents with good effect, making observations and drawing conclusions that will ring true with most readers. The author's spontaneous, caring, and good-humored personality is noticeable in most essays, but at times his sensitive and vulnerable side shows through as well. The diversity of topics covered also contributes to making the collection a joy to read.
