My Ratings: 4.8/5

Most of us demand our rights and complain about the services provided to us but do we fulfill our duties as citizens? This book rightly points out this point and teaches, through various real-life exemplary figures, how and why we need to contribute actively towards building a positive nation.

This book effectively tells us how and why you should contribute towards building a positive nation.

What I liked about the book:
–> That it is written by someone who is herself contributing to the development of the nation through exemplary work.
–> It’s not just ‘all talk and no show’ because it gives examples and even tells us how each one of us can do something similar.
–> Overall a very inspiring read. There was no chapter that did not leave me in awe or made me reflect on my contributions towards society.
–> It is not a dated version and is in fact written during the Covid pandemic, hence talks about relevant as well as current issues.

What I did not like about the book:
–> For all its positive talks, I wish the book also talked about the kind of difficulties the personalities faced and how they overcame it.
–> The sentence structure and grammar was off at quite a few places.

Quotable quotes:
–> Success is always due to a team effort.
–>Mass change starts with change at the individual level.
–>In an era of connectivity, we are oddly disconnected from those around us. It could be family or those in our immediate environment.
–>As a citizen, we have immense power to make a difference.
–>We don’t vote in 5 years. With our choices and action (and inaction) we vote DAILY for the kind of world we wish to inhabit.
–>The significant problems we face, as a nation cannot be solved without the participation of citizens- whether litter on the street, air pollution or inequity or making the country safer for women and children or overcoming the Covid pandemic and its impact on the economy.
–> As a citizen you matter. You aren’t one among a billion. You are an important ONE in a billion.
–> The power of individual action multiplied by millions can indeed transform the world.
