The Fine Print of Life brings alive the charmingly named Panna Lal, Hira Lal, Mishri Devi, Jalebi Devi and others as they muddle through life in their search for happiness and success. Struggling to make it big, but not sure what they really want from life, they reflect our own doubts, difficulties and apprehensions. As the author, P.S. Wasu, guides us, through them, to a new awareness of ourselves, he offers no prescriptions. What he does is far more valuable: he enables us to create our own paths and see the possibilities of our own lives.
There is no magic wand to solving life’s problems. But short of that, The Fine Print of Life shows us how we can live creatively and joyously. The book is not about making hard work of life. It is about letting go, effortlessness and spontaneity—the qualities we had in such abundance when we were children. It triggers something that brings our childhood back, showing us how to live life in the here and now.
