Praise for “What a thought!”
Rev. Dada J P Vaswani:
“I have always believed that thoughts are forces; thoughts have power; thoughts can shape our lives. As we think, so we become! It is essential therefore that we fill our consciousness with good thoughts, positive thoughts, noble thoughts that can inspire, uplift and elevate our thinking. I congratulate Mr. Manoj Khatri for bringing out his collection of thoughts, which can help us achieve our goal of high and positive thinking. What A Thought! is well worth a good reading!”
Deepak Parekh, Chairman, HDFC Ltd.:
“What a thought! is an interesting and well-written book. I found it to be simple yet profound. The book has a prudent mix of powerful quotes and floral images which aptly symbolize the thoughts. This book will be useful for a wide audience of be it leaders, professionals or youngsters in their journey through life.”
Bhawana Somaaya, Author & Critic:
“Manoj Khatri is an evolved writer with a keen understanding of human psychology. What a thought! is a passionate and positive expression of life that makes you look inward and alter your life. In a simple and novel concept illustrated with beautiful pictures he transports you to a harmonious world where every problem has a solution. His Preface to the book very quietly and succinctly prepares you for a spiritual journey. The book is a modern day Gita to be preserved by your bedside and delved into in times of turbulence.”
Dia Mirza, Actor:
“Every quote motivates. As Editor of Complete Wellbeing, Manoj tends to the garden of life.”
Dr. Bhaskar Das, Executive President, The Times of India Group:
The old adage goes if you can’t say it with words say it with flowers, but in this book you have said it with words and flowers, beautifully. Congratulations on writing a book that, like sunshine, will spread light and revelations. I felt energized reading it!
Dr. Minnu Bhonsle Ph.D, Consulting Psychotherapist and Trainer in Robert Carkhuff Model of Counselling and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy:
This book validates my evaluation of Manoj as the ‘eternal student’ when he trained under me in counseling. Just as an Arjuna needs a Krishna as a teacher, so too a Krishna needs an Arjuna as a student. This book demonstrates that Manoj is one such Arjuna who has recognized the greatness of the greats and picked up these pure ‘gold nuggets’. As a trainer in counselling, a consulting psychotherapist, and a student of life myself, I have great value for this collection of quotes, as I recognize the need of a quick recap of the therapy sessions on a daily basis, to change the course of one’s thoughts and thus to bring about sustainable change. Reflecting and contemplating on each of these quotes could give the much needed impetus to the process of change stimulated in therapy. This collection is therefore the perfect ‘ready reckoner’ for every therapist and student of counseling who needs to offer self-help tools to carry the gains of therapy outside the session.
Dr. Rajan Bhonsle, M.D. Hon Professor & Head of the Department, KEM Hospital & Seth G.S. Medical College:
What a thought is a concise ‘book of wisdom’. The language has been kept simple, the commentaries are short but profound, and the presentation is pleasing to the eyes. While selecting quotes, Manoj has carefully chosen ‘wise men’ from all walks of life and not just philosophers, mystics or spiritual leaders. This makes this collection even more meaningful with a wide acceptability profile. This book is an example that wisdom has no religion or country, and that it is timeless.
