Heroes of Kindness
by Dr. Roshan Radhakrishnan
Remember how I talked about the Blogchatter Ebook Carnival in my last book review? The next book that I picked up this year is also from this library. And it’s probably the best series that I have read. EVER.
You can download this book from the Blogchatter Library.
About the Author: Dr. Roshan Radhakrishnan
If you have been around in the blogging world for sometime now, you probably know this genius and witty anesthesiologist. One of the few first generation bloggers, who are still around, he is an excellent fiction writer. Let me put that in perspective – he has 25 published books to his credit.
He is one author who is really using his reach to educate people. And that is something I really love about his blog! He has been pursuing this series of Heroes of Kindness since 2017. It’s the absolute determination of looking for positivity while the world was on its way to becoming as vile as it can! It talks a lot about the person. And it’s because of this determination that the doctor has successfully completed four years of heroes of kindness.
In his own words,
Imagine a newspaper filled only with positive stories. Have you ever seen one? Neither have I, which is why I decided to create one myself.
And that is exactly what this book is about. 50 really short stories about some ordinary people from around the world. They have extremely ordinary lives but extra-ordinary intentions to make the world a better place to live! Every chapter is a different story – and a quick read.
The first thing which catches my attention is the preface of the book. Very creatively, the author has asked a dear friend to write the preface. I think that is a very polite way of engaging your readers. It sets the context in a very positive way!
Rest of the book is beautiful! Trust me, that is the first thought that comes to your mind. While the stories are various acts of kindness, the way the author has put together the emotions is absolutely commendable!
When you read about people, helping their fellow humans, helping in the best way within their capacity, it gives you hope. And I think that is the main idea behind this whole series. It also makes you evaluate and revaluate your own life choices – there is always the option of being kind.
Lastly, another appealing factor of the book is the last section which is just what the present morbid situation of COVID19 needs. The author has quoted 20 instances of kindness during the COVID times in India – which is absolutely mood-lifting. Roshan has definitely taken his dream of publishing the ‘Positivity Times’ very seriously.
I would highly recommend this book. And also, if you want some eye-opening facts about the world around us in general, I would also suggest to follow him on Twitter!
Utilizing this space for shamelessly promoting my book, which I also published during the Blogchatter Ebook carnival. Read it here before it’s gone. Share some love and feedback! If you loved the April A to Z series on the blog, you would like this book even more!
Also, Roshan and I had a li’l chit chat about our books and almost everything happening on the earth! It was an interesting session. Should we start a podcast? Or do we talk too much?
