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!
