Book Review - Equations of a being by Ashutosh Gupta

Before I start I would like to confess that I haven't read any book in this genre. Frankly speaking, I am not sure in which genre should I categorized this book. I would like to thank Ashutosh for bringing "Equations of a Being - A Being Who Gathered Moss" to my attention. As the title suggested, the book is a collection of thoughts about various points/things in and around our life.

Book Blurb
If you have a penchant for both reason and abstractness, this intriguing piece of literature shouldn’t be missed. Equations of a Being beautifully coalesces the author’s thought pieces pertaining to the existential spectrum. Never has there been a book that blended emotions, intellect, and imagination so seamlessly, to celebrate a being in totality. 
The author depicts his artistic persuasion, the enriched and disintegrated fragments of his existence, and the conclusions based on his interactions with the physical and abstract elements of life in a compelling and unbridled manner. 
It’s a book for the ages that will let you trace the complete trajectory of a being and realize that a being has been and will always be a convergence of his tryst with abstractness, his acceptance of vulnerability, and his surge for virtuosity
As rightly suggested in the blurb, the author has provided thoughts on various higher to lower level subjects. Being an artist, he has started his points from art, artist, writing to subjects. Then he shifted his focus towards life, man, woman, and feminism. He then talked about God, faith, and worship. At last, he touched the point of existence. Each line is a wonderful quote that one can use for the various purposes.

Talking about the depth of content, it may look like a line per page, but you can write two to three page for each of those lines. One has to read it with full focus to capture the hidden meaning of those lines. I have told earlier, some books you can devour, while some required proper digestion. This book falls under the later category.

I am new to this genre so cannot comment on the content part. But book can be good read for
  • People like to read thought-provoking content
  • People like to read critically acclaimed work
  • Serious and Abstract content readers
Book would be a wrong pick for
  • People like fiction books
  • People like entertainment filled book
  • Those who have started reading English recently
