Description

A challenging and provocative book that will be hard to push out of your mind once you have read it; you may hate it, it may incense you and you may be outraged by it, yet it will not be a book you will forget very quickly. Some of the author's affirmations may be too bold or direct for some readers, yet their logic, simplicity and provability will be hard to contest. The author pans all the different paths that a man may take, and scans all the basic philosophical worldviews that a person may adopt and then addresses the inherent weakness of each, showing the flaws not by intellectual arguments so much as by evoking a subjective dissonance in the reader. The language is simple, sometimes odd, and yet it hits the gut in a way that one cannot deny the sincerity of the author's convictions, although one may disagree with them. If you are in a place in your life, where you are seeking a direction or meaning, then you should take the time to read this book; if you know someone who is hurting or in pain, or someone who is facing challenges in life, then you could even gift this book to them; surely many will thank you for it.show more

About MR Hemant Daniel Thorat

Hemant Thorat was born in Pune, India, in 1968. His childhood was spent in a variety of places as his parents had to shift often as they stayed in rented accommodation. Although a jovial, fun-loving child from birth he grew introverted and withdrawn as he matured due to domestic discord between his parents. He saw his life vastly different from his classmates at a premier educational institute, Loyola High School. They did not have the problems he had, they did not know the pain he went through daily; the dread he felt at the thought of going home, the relief of being in school, the intense emotions and shame that resulted from knowing that all the neighbors could hear the raging quarrels at home. Before he turned 15, he had already learnt what loneliness meant and had made solitude his home. He had begun to read novels as a way to escape the reality of his life, and was way ahead of all his classmates, having graduated to Wilbur Smith, Robert Ludlum and Tom Clancy even before he entered Class X. As he passed out of school he fell in with the bad crowd; from there it was not too far to alcohol and smoking. Hemant always had a deep faith in God which was hidden under the veneer he had built around him. But when his boss began to venture into the occult and witchcraft, Hemant quit the gangs, being the only one who was actually allowed to do so without any adverse consequences. Yet it was to be several years before Hemant actually gave his own heart and life to God, after having run from the call which he had heard when he was five. He attended a short intensive Bible school where he stood first out of some 350 students. He has taught in churches in bible schools around India and also pastured two congregations in and around Pune. He has a lovely daughter, Shekinah, from his first marriage which tragically ended in a divorce. He quit the ministry and began working with an insurance company. His successful career took him to banking, broking, investment banking and wealth advisory and finally resigned as President, Sales & Operations, to start his own firm. Hemant married Prerna in 2011 and they were blessed with a wonderful son, Yehoshua. He lives in Pune, India. Presently he teaches the Word, counsels and guides ministers and writes books and articles; he is also building a portal for e-commerce and an energy harvesting device.show more
