The Quest of the Sparrows by Kartik  Sharma

 

BLURB – Inspired by the life of a sparrow that leads a carefree life, Partibhan, a young and reluctant guru takes off on an amazing journey in evolution. He believes that human beings can become powerful creators, and achieve much more but the desire to secure the future makes them mere survivors. Between birth and death, evolution is the only constant, which humans can achieve by giving up self-limiting practices.

Partibhan sets out to test spiritual principles at a practical level, with the exceptional 600 kilometer journey on foot without money and belongings. He wishes to demonstrate that man’s fixation on materialism and the need to accumulate is overrated: Survival isn’t the goal of life. A much bigger role, a higher calling awaits us.

Can Partibhan and his followers overcome hardships on the way to find the answers they seek? Are they able to prove that spirituality isn’t an impractical concept as many have come to believe but is inseparable from evolution? What insights do they come across? What does their journey prove and what is its power packed message for you? Do they discover peace and joy? How is it different from happiness?

Discover all this and much more in this path breaking, evolutionary new writing that explores the higher meaning of life and demonstrates practically how one can achieve peace and joy while leading a meaningful and creative life. (less)

 

 

REVIEW – It is a selfhelp and a story beautifully delved and penned down.

Cover – the cover reminds me of charles bukowski’s poem there’s a bluebird in my heart.
So does the title remind me.
The cover is simple and elegant.

Title – quest of sparrows the title will make you think of it as a journey which keeps going on.

The story is about a bunch of people who go on for a pilgrimage where they meet swami and there life changes with the journey he takes the whole group out.
The deep demons that one has kept buried deep that is put to show.
the journey demands to have nothing to carry but to make way for the living. Just as one is born and makes out for his living through seeking, helping and spreading love.
The journey is tough but is really worth the whole while.
Is the ending happy?
The story will teach you a lot though.
A lot of knowledge can be scraped from the story. The narration and language really keeps you hooked to the book throughout.
The more you say is less about the book.
Definitely recommended!
Read the book to know more.

Overall -4/5.
