An advisor gifted a copy of Amit Trivedi’s latest book to his client which had a very happy ending. This is a real story though the names of the advisor, client and client’s son have been kept confidential, given the sensitive nature.
Here is the excerpts from the letter sent to advisor by this client.
My son in his late teens has finished his school last year. He is a spendthrift and keeps a bad company in college.
My wife and I were disturbed and concerned about his well-being since last month, after discovering his spending habits in wrongful deeds.
You had gifted me this book a couple of months ago which I gave to my son which he never opened due to his busy social media schedule, wherein he is busy 24/7 on his mobile phone.
Unfortunately, my son sold off his mobile phone to repay his debts to some goons.
Now that he does not have a mobile since last three days, I insisted him to read this book. Every time, he finishes a chapter, he pens down the moral of story in a manner, which we can relate to in our day-to-day life.
I thank you for this wonderful gift and say this from the core of my heart as this has turned out to be therapeutic for my son. In fact, we have seen a significant difference in his attitude.
He has indeed become more receptive to our talks and has suddenly attained a sense of responsibility by taking charge of his messed life.
It is not easy and we are not going off guard too early, we will keep doing this for another 6 months and I am sure he will be a better human by then.
We have completed first three chapters - Deewar, Namak Haram and Zindagi Milegi Naa Dobara.
We are continuously relating his demands and behaviour with these stories and he miraculously realises his shortcomings, without us getting upset and being wild on him.
When none of the counselling sessions worked but after we as a family came together it’s working hence I feel deeply grateful and thank the author Amitbhai for this wonderful piece of fusion between Bollywood, personal finance and human behaviour.
I just learnt, in life, it is not always “Sabse Bada Rupaiya”.
