This book contains some of my most cherished experiences that are like beautiful flowers to me and have been put together here as if to complete a garland.
While most of the experiences are from previously published books, there are two new flowers: one that highlights my literary journey and the other that elaborates on the true meaning of philanthropy. This book is dedicated to my brother Shrinivas. Writing about him is easy enough and yet so difficult. I look like him, think like him, read like him and eat like him.

House of Cards – Sudha Murthy Books PDF
There was a small village in north Karnataka with a population of five to eight thousand. It boasted of a beautiful lake with a temple of Lord Hanuman on its shore. The area was dotted with banyan trees. In Kannada, a banyan tree is called ‘aladamara’ and ‘halli’ means village, so the village was named Aladahalli. Aladahalli had only one main road, with houses on either side, and a bus stand right in the middle of the village.
Most people who were from here preferred to stay on and commute for work to the cities nearby: Hubli and Dharwad. The advantages of staying in Aladahalli were a laid-back life, less noise and almost no pollution. The greatest attraction though was the school, which was on a par with any city school, and where the medium of instruction was both English and Kannada. Just like in city schools, the students got a rank based on their merit. Bheemanna’s daughter, Mridula, was among the top students in her class and was known for her intelligence.

Something Happened on The Way to Heaven – Sudha Murthy Books PDF
One day, shortly after the release of my last book in the market, I was on my way home from work when I thought about my unexpected literary journey. I was filled with awe as I realized that the books I’ve been able to write are really not about me at all—they are about the people I’ve met, the places I’ve been to and the lives I’ve had the privilege of being a part of. I felt blessed—so fortunate to be in a position to help people, even as they found it in their hearts to let me inside their world and share their most private thoughts and problems with me.
They’ve given me their stories and I’ve had a chance to be a character in their tales. Sometimes, I’ve been lucky enough to be the lead actor, but at most other times, I’ve been an incidental character or simply the unbiased storyteller. So when I sat down to discuss this book with Shrutkeerti Khurana, my wonderful and trusted editor, and Udayan Mitra, my publisher at Penguin, I wanted to do something different.

The Daughter From A Wishing Tree – Sudha Murthy Books PDF
When I decided to write a book about women in mythology, I began my research and soon felt disappointed and disillusioned. I found that there is minimal literature that highlights the important roles that women have played. The most popular of these women are, without a doubt, Draupadi from the Mahabharata and Sita from the Ramayana, and then there’s Parvati, who portrays a strong character of a goddess well-versed in the art of slaying demons and protecting her devotees.
In fact, many rivers in our country are considered to be goddesses. However, the number of stories that abound about these women is strangely far fewer than the number of stories that speak about men. The literature that does exist is frequently repetitive and women are usually cast as subordinate or minor characters and remain underappreciated. Perhaps this is because our society has traditionally been a male-dominated one, or because mythology has been written mostly by men, but most likely, it is a combination of these two reasons.

The Day I Stopped Drinking Milk – Sudha Murthy Books PDF
One may wonder why I am writing about the personal lives of many people who have confided in me about their problems. Isn’t it unethical to do so? However, most of the people I have written about requested me to change their names and use their problems as case studies. Some like Vishnu and Portado encouraged me to tell their stories so that others should not become like them. I thank all these people wholeheartedly and am grateful for their strength and kindness that has allowed me to share their stories with you.
This is my fourth book of recollections of my experiences as a teacher, a writer and a social worker. I want to thank my new editor, Shrutkeerti Khurana, whose hard work has made an immense difference to this book. Her constant interaction with me made me think of some stories in a different way and also helped me look at things from a youngster’s point of view. I would also like to thank Udayan Mitra of Penguin Books for convincing me to bring out a new volume of my stories and thoughts.

The Magic Drum – Sudha Murthy Books PDF
My stories do not have animals, gods, miracles or curses. My own favourites, and these are ones I loved hearing many years ago, are about how men and women, boys and girls, land themselves in trouble and how they extricate themselves from it. They are about human emotions and everyday human activities. Though these tales have been gathered from all over the world, while retelling them I have set them all in India so that the Indian child can relate to them.
The people have Indian names and they live in ancient Indian kingdoms. I have rewritten many stories which I first heard as a child. Some others were told to me by people from other countries and some I have created myself. I want to thank many people who have helped me to bring this book out, especially my publishers Penguin Books India. Finally, I hope my readers, the children, will enjoy and remember them.

Wise and Otherwise A Salute to Life – Sudha Murthy Books PDF
We are heirs to the tradition of seeing human quality as sattwa, rajas or tamas. This is a beautifully Indian way of expressing a metaphysical concept familiar to other civilizations as well: of all God’s creations, man alone has a choice between good and evil, and he reaps his rewards according to what he chooses.
Few set out consciously to perform sattwik work. Fewer still deliberately desire a life of tamas. Some could even start out with tamas or rajas and elevate themselves to sattwa. All this would be attributed to the larger cosmic scheme of karma. Jamshedji Tata appears to have had only a sattwik view of life and work —laying an industrial foundation for his country, starting educational and research institutions, and setting up a network of charities when such ideas were unknown.
