The road rage galore and killing of man by a fellow man because of anger unbridled, an abnormal rise in sexual offences, infringement of social obligations and not giving space to younger boys and girls in the family by the patriarch sets the authoress thinking. She travels on the road leading to the the enormous knowledge about running a family, a society and easing social tensions for enjoying life contained in our literature of yore. Rishis and other men of learning had seen through the chasm in community living and found a way to bridge the widening gap here, there and everywhere.
With her knowledge of Sanskrit language and literature, Sudha Sawant found an easy access to Vedic Vangmai or gems of knowledge contained in the Vedas, the Upanishads, and other works of art and literature that make a man’s living in the human society as easy as breathing effortlessly. Of course, different articles written by Sudha at different times have been put in place in a book form that makes reading effortless and enjoyable.
The book “Mantrmai Jeevan” also contains a chapter on Rani of Jhansi, Lakshmi Bai, to enthuse and encourage young girls of today to take on the enemy of the nation even at the cost of losing life. Never mind, the road to Martyrdom is not strewn with rose petals but is indeed the gateway to the Hall of Fame.
The crowning achievement of Sudha Sawant is her magnanimity in making her book available free of cost to the Brahmcharis of Gurukulas, the student community of higher secondary schools, teachers of all schools and colleges and libraries visited by both the young and the old. Of course, only those who have a reading habit should ask for a free copy of the book so that it does not find its way to the dustbin unread. She implores prospective readers to read and pass on to those who need to read.
Life is rosy. Life is cheerful. There is no place for depression and negativity in a human life. If anyone feels a little low, do reach for Mantramai Jeevan to change track from depression to optimism.
