Book Review : Bhagavad Gita for Modern Life

Bhagavad Gita is a timeless book i.e. it is relevant across time. Yes, it needs to be interpreted again and again according to the need of time. Balgangadhar Tilak did it for his time. Osho did as per need of his time.

Today, in the age of fast food, the youngest nation focusing on one of the biggest ever skill development program needed another interpretation of Bhagavad Gita. Satish Modh’s book Discover The Arjuna In You fulfils this need.

The book has 18 chapters on the line of Bhagavad Gita with examples from Bharatiya tradition as a case study. Small chapters, lucid language make the book delight to read.

The best part of the book is its foundation. It is not a book based on theory alone. Satish Modh has developed a personality indicator based on the Guna concept of Bhagvad Gita and has tested it on thousands of individuals. The book has impact of this study and it makes it more worthy.

Satish Modh, with a PhD in Strategy has wide experience in the corporate world as well as in the teaching profession at the premium institutes of Bharat. The learnings’ from both are clearly reflected in the structuring of chapters and overall book. Each chapter comes with “Action Plan”, which acts as a guide to the layman. It is a ‘must read’ for anyone who is lost in the fight of survival and is looking for a purpose in the life. After all Arjuna’s life was full of struggle but he had never lost his focus.
