Book Reveiw : Keep Off The Grass




Book : Keep Off The Grass
Author: Karan Bajaj

I picked up the book because it had a fascinating title. Keeping up to name, the book speaks about Vippasna , Marijuana , and the "F'' word umpteen times . How a Yale graduate working in an Investment Banking firm gives up his job and comes to study in India at the prestigious Business School IIM Banglore. The purpose was to rediscover himself and be a part of something which he was made for . But contrary to his dreams he meets two guys , An IITian (The Most Bastrad species on earth) and a Kargil warrior. The group can rightly be named as the D-Group .Marijuana was the path they took to fight the peer pressure and the uncountable quizzes . Between these, the book raises some basic questions which haunt us everyday . Though the answers are varied but ultimately the conclusion is doing what one pleases. After that it depends from person to person when one realizes what he wanted to do . Finally the Yale graduate gets answers to his questions and he realizes at last what he had come for and that he needed dope no more.

One of the interesting lines from the book,"I smoke it in protest man , Marijuana exists naturally as a plant . Who is the government to ban God's creation? It's like me wanting to make potatoes illegal because I don't like their taste."

Another good thing of the book is that the cover is very well designed.

what I felt after reading this book that money should not be the most important criteria for the life but content with the life and living a life to its most is more important. we shouldn't follow the race of horses but we should follow what we believe in and choose that path where we can discover ourself and feel eternal joy.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real money.
It's all about how to choose a proper companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
