Think With Me by 'Saharasri' Subrata Roy Sahara (Book Review-2.5*/5) !!!

Reading non-fiction books give me a different kind of satisfaction because may be a reader won’t learn anything after reading a fiction but a non-fiction book surely adds something to our knowledge. Even if the book is unable to provide any knowledge, it at least changes or builds our opining towards something. Last time when I had picked the book written by one of the most eminent personalities of India, ‘Saharasri’ Subrata Roy Sahara, Life Mantras, I was really happy with the kind of insight he had provided on various subjects. It was the 1st book in the Trilogy of “Thoughts from Tihar”. The book also turned out to be a Bestseller and readers liked it very much. 

I just picked the 2nd book in the same trilogy named Think With Me which also has the tagline “Fundamentals for making our country ideal”. I assumed that the book will consist of each sentence being very meaningful as it has to speak everything in just 100 pages. Unfortunately, I am very disappointed after reading this book. It seems just because author wanted to continue writing in the same trilogy, he purposely added this book by scribbling various thoughts in his mind he had for political leadership, population growth, education, the media and religion in just 15 days. 

The solutions that the author has provided aren’t really impressive and effective. He has sounded very childish in the opinions that he has given because they are so obvious that almost 90% Indians have the same on the respective topics. After that the corrective measures that he has shared with us is also silly most of the times which are not possible to be implemented. The thing for which Chetan Bhagat is regularly trolled; Subrata Roy Sahara has repeated the same in this book. In comparison to his first book in this trilogy, this book is nowhere close. I give this book just 2.5 stars out of 5. Thankfully, the book is not much thicker and I was able to complete it within 2.5 hours itself. Hope the author will bounce back with the last book in the trilogy. Looking forward to it.
