My take on Think with Me

Subrata Roy Sahara knows how difficult it is to reach where he is, success is always hard earned and being successful in a country like India is even more difficult. Now, you must be wondering what a vague statement is that, but let’s get deeper into it. Starting with the overpopulation, getting into a good school, a better college is so difficult, there are times when even 99% marks are not enough for getting into a college where you’ve always dreamed of studying.

Citing the same problem of population, businessmen face a strong competition and mind you this competition is cut-throat. And it is so, only because there are lots of people doing the same business. Earning money in our country is hard. How does one rectify this and make living in India a fairly easy? We are constantly working hard and failing to be happy with our lives, what will make this better?

When we look at the professionals in the western countries, we see how well organized their lives are, how comfortably they reach work and come home at the same time daily and spend time with their families. Unlike us, we struggle to reach our offices, courtesy packed public transport, traffic or bad roads. Most of us don’t ever leave office in time as all of us are over-worked and burdened, doing work worth two employees. The list goes on and on.

Saharasri, in ‘Think with Me’, discusses population, education and all the other factors he thinks, if fixed, will lead India in becoming a better and ideal country! It’s a book, I highly recommend to all the people who keep wondering where is our country going wrong and is not progressing as fast as it should. Also, to all those people who consider themselves as concerned citizens.


‘Think with Me’ has given me a better understanding of our Country and I will do my best to contribute to its betterment!

Why I want to read Saharasri’s ‘Think with Me’

After reading ‘Life Mantras’ by Mr Subrata Roy Sahara, I am a changed person. With all the situation that he has been into and he has still maintained such a positive attitude towards life, I am truly impressed and inspired by Mr Roy! This is my reason one for wanting to read ‘Think with Me’.

Besides this, I consider myself as a concerned citizen of India, and I work hard and pay taxes, yet I see the country only going down the drain and not progressing at all. If at all, there is any progress, it is slow as a snail or as invisible as the wind. I totally fail to understand what is going on, I am reading about other countries becoming a powerful nation and don’t get me wrong, I read about India progressing too, launching new satellites and making powerful nuclear ammunitions BUT what about the common man like me? Our life is only becoming tougher and tougher, the roads aren’t smooth, the public transport is always over-crowded and getting in good education institute is almost getting next to impossible.

So, after ‘Life Mantras’, I have been looking forward to its sequel that is named as ‘Think with Me’. Saharasri is an extremely intelligent man, and this very intelligence and his reasoning skills have made him the man that he is and build an empire this big. I wanted to know how he thinks we can make India a better country and I literally want to ‘Think with him’. He has discussed the fundamentals of making India an ideal country, along with issues such population, education system, media and religion, electoral system & leadership.


I am sure, Mr Roy would’ve discussed these in minute details and the book will give me a fresh perspective on why India isn’t getting better for the common public and how to make it better.

Thoughts on ‘Think with me’ by Subrata Roy

With great power comes great responsibility


“Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.” Who doesn’t want to achieve success in life? Today, we all know the importance of success. An individual is recognised in the society based on his/her potential of success. When we take success to another tangent, it could perhaps be a myth, not everyone likes to or wants to share their secret to success. However, we always have exceptions. Highlighting the exception in this article, he is none other than Subrata Roy. Possessing his own company, he is among those generous souls who shares his secret to success. ‘Sahara’ is the company that was one among the first Indian companies to have an evident global presence. Covering various sectors, Sahara flourished to the fullest wherein millions of people were employed at one point of time.
“Think with Me” by Subrata Roy is doing exceptionally well across. It emphasizes our day-to-day concern in regards to political leadership, population growth, education, the media and religion going from bad to worse. Don’t you want to know what went wrong? Why are we facing these horrid problems? “Think with Me” is an answer to all the above concerns. This book involves Mr Roy’s years of experience where he discusses problems related to the above five fundamental issues. He has liberally shared some of those experiences in detail throughout the book. Along with it being an interesting read, it’s also a great guidebook that values the sacred for the love of the country before independence.

Thus, Mr Roy, through a deep-seated & thought provoking commentary on these issues invites you to think along with him and muse over these issues honestly and sincerely. Subrata Roy has been the man who takes responsibility for his actions. In this book, he talks about the need for a wider awakening on the issues mentioned above.

A gist of ‘Think with Me’ by Saharasri

Subrata Roy Sahara needs no introduction, the world has seen him grow into the successful businessman that he is and in spite of all his success, he has still managed to remain one of the humblest people you will ever come across. What makes him stay so humble and positive in life is not a secret, he has written a book on it called “Life Mantras”, which has been a bestseller for a while too.



So, after ‘Life Mantra’ comes ‘Think with Me’, a book from Saharasri’s trilogy. In ‘Think with Me’, he basically focuses on how to make India, our country an ideal one. We all know how our country is facing problems of various types, be it education, the religion and media degrading, political leadership, over population, etc. We often end up wondering what is it that we can actually do to make India a more livable place. Doubts like is the democracy really not helping India become better? Why aren’t we progressing in spite of so many efforts in the form of schemes, bills, laws etc.? Why aren’t our leaders able to do anything to fix the situation and make our country better?

Many young adults are indulging in a phenomenon known as ‘Brain Drain’, because the overall lifestyle and stand of living in our country is deteriorating with time as opposed to other countries which are only getting bigger and better. This is definitely not going to do our country any good as if you understand the situation, the brightest and most intelligent people are educating themselves from India and when it is time to use this very education and intelligence, they prefer to settle down in another country, adding to their grown and overall improvement.


‘Think with Me’ is more of an eye-opener for many and even if there will be some thoughts that you may not agree with, but the overall book is something every concerned citizen of India will agree with.
