BOOK REVIEW : Once Upon a Dharamyudh by Vibhor Tikiya

Dharam is a dream institution for its founders and employees alike, who give it their sweat and blood. In time, it prospers owing to the fine acumen of its owners and efforts of its employees. Prakash is caught in the web of fulfilling his father's dying wish and gives up his dream job to take up the mantle of responsibility at Dharam. A radical thinker equipped with modern ways of working, he sets the company and workers on a path of development, though with much resistance to his methods. Uday's humble origins and difficult childhood inspire him to dream big, he dreams of equality and fair treatment for the weaker sections of the society. He believes it is his Dharam to raise his voice against any injustice. The fight between a man's belief and an institution's values becomes a tussle between the haves and the have-nots, acquiring magnanimous proportions. Both believe they are right and are willing to do what is needed to be done for their Dharam.

REVIEW :- Firstly i would like to thanks the author for sending me the book.
Dharam is a story of an institution in turmoil,a battle between the perceived haves & have-nots.
Life can get quite befuddling at times.At one point,you want something so badly,that you are ready to do anything about it.Life ad circumstances change fast & you forget what you were ready to give everything up for.
But when you try to create something good,you first have to overcome All & everything against you,including your own ethos.
Every chapters starts with versus of the Bhagvad Gita.
The story is different from other books & is interesting.
All together, its a must read.
I would like to give it 4 out of 5 stars.
