Good things to read.

Connect the Dots by Rashmi Bansal. Connect the Dots is the story of 20 enterprising individuals without an MBA, who started their own ventures. They were driven by the desire to prove themselves. To lead interesting, passionate, meaningful lives. Their stories say one thing loud and clear : you don’t need a fancy degree or a rich daddy to dream big and make it happen – it’s all in your head, your heart, your hands.

Eleven Minutes by Paulo Coelho.  Eleven Minutes is the story of Maria, a young girl from a Brazilian village, whose first innocent brushes with love leave her heartbroken. At a tender age, she becomes convinced that she will never find true love, instead believing that “love is a terrible thing that will make you suffer. . . .” A chance meeting in Rio takes her to Geneva, where she dreams of finding fame and fortune. Maria’s despairing view of love is put to the test when she meets a handsome young painter. In this odyssey of self-discovery, Maria has to choose between pursuing a path of darkness or risking everything to find her own “inner light”.

Man, Woman and Child by Eric Segal. An unforgettable story of love, the drama of a father and the son he never knew, and a marriage that must stand the greatest test of all. Bob and Sheila Beckwith had everything: rewarding careers, two wonderful daughters, and a perfect marriage… almost perfect. For what Sheila didn’t know was that Bob has once been unfaithful-only once, ten years ago during a business trip to France.  This story covers every possible emotion and relationship of a family!
