Book Review of Kaleidoscope: Colours of Life by Inderjit Kaur
Kaleidoscope : Colours of Life is such an apt title for this book because the author, Inderjt Kaur, has used the colours of the rainbow as metaphors for the various qualities needed to live a fulfilling life e.g Spiritual Violet, Compassionate Orange, Confident Blue.
The book is a mix of the author’s own experiences, her thoughts and the stories of people she has encountered in her life. The book basically talks about suffering and the author tries to give her readers advice on how not to let it get them down.
When I heard about the book and read the foreword, I expected to read a lot of motivating stories but the stories cover only the first seven chapters of the book. The second part of the book covers thirty-eight chapters which deal with advice that is pretty doable. E.g expand your vision, appointment with your future etc.
I liked the way she has sprinkled her book with quotes from other motivational writers. They wind up the chapters rather well.
As you read, nuggets of wisdom spring out at you like, “ When you give up, you indirectly refuse to learn.” or “a world of you, by you, for you!”
But despite all this it was a difficult book to read as there were places where the sentences were too long and rambling to make sense. The book really needs to be edited better.
Inderjit Kaur is an author, motivator with a powerful voice of spreading positive words through her writings. A highly influential blogger and inspirational guide who with her tag line ‘Keep smiling, keep shining’, has brewed up with the original concept of living through her books of A living series.
