Nirvana For The Corporate Soul

Review of Corporate Nirvana; Sonali Masih-D’silva; Embassy Books; pp 138; Rs 195

– Anju Roby Philip

In nine neat chapters of Corporate Nirvana, Sonali elaborates how to better one’s life, conquer the fears and lead a stress-free professional life. The book’s title speaks well for itself – this is a Nirvana for those working in the corporate sector. With a man’s worklife and story in the foreground, Sonali takes each one of us through this realization journey, reminding us of our potential as individuals, and also on how to take control of our lives before it’s too late.

The totally workaholic protagonist meets middle-aged Maya during his journey, who helps him realise many things in life. Then there’s the concept of the ‘Universe’ – it puts resourceful people in your life’s path whenever you need them. It’s up to us to “learn from them” and their advices.

Each chapter starts with an insightful quote and ends with a poignant summary of the points covered in the chapter and an action point, which acts as a push for you to change/ add something in your life to make it fruitful. Sonali’s vast experience in the field of self-development across various countries and cultures has helped shaped this book.

The author uses fluid language and simple phrases to drive home the point. She does not talk own; in fact, she has made sure that the readers’ level was taken into consideration when scripting the plot and points. A must-read for corporate and IT professionals. The ‘Personal Breakthrough’ Worksheet at the close of the book is very helpful for readers.
