Book Review | Ritesh R. Thapa | The Literature TodayApril 6, 2021
Author Ritesh R. Thapa comes across as a confident person after going through the book ‘I am the King.’
Quite innovatively, he has presented his work like a complete treat to the readers by dividing it into parts accordingly. That is, he has grouped the first few chapters as Appetizers, the middles ones as Main Course and the later ones as Desserts. Of course, it has come out to be delicious overall.
A reader might get astonished on reading about the achievements of the author, if he grasps the sense of his conveyed messages rightly. The content of this book includes but is not limited to the experiences and life-lessons of the author described in interesting ways.
To start with, Ritesh talks about attitude and puts forward the theory that mind is the most powerful weapon each individual possesses.
He adds that mind is selfish, it will always protect the owner. If someone wishes to be different, she/he needs to revolt against the mind. Ritesh warns that it will try to keep its owner in the comfort zone, but if one wants to achieve success, s/he has to push herself or himself out of the comfort zone.
While discussing the ways to succeed, Ritesh doesn’t forget to underline the importance of Time in life. He says it’s the most precious thing that we human beings can have and still, if once gone, it can’t be pulled back. He emphasizes the need to plan the time correctly and effectively, well in advance. The author says that one needs to ensure that it has to be followed meticulously.
Soon after specifying the importance of Time in life, Ritesh makes sure to add about the value of Dreams in life as well.
