Karma Kurry for the Mind, Body, Heart & Soul is a decade-long journey of discovering soul-stirring narratives that celebrate the triumph of the human spirit.
“Together as One we can Right every Wrong”. In this energizing book the founders of the Joy of Giving, KarmaVeer, KarmaYuga and REX movements bring together enthralling life stories of Karmaveer award recipients.
We believe that every human has a hero within; a courageous, compassionate being who has the power to create a better, more humane world. The compelling stories in this book are of ordinary citizens who have unleashed the spirit within, with extraordinary consequences, radically changing society for the better. Their ideas for action and their stories will inspire you at a profound level. They are everyday women and men who have taken their defeats and adversities and turned them into laudable actions for transformation.
The list includes globally eminent names like Meera Sanyal, Michael Norton, Arun Maira, Bill Drayton and Kumi Naidoo as well as unsung heroes like Lakshman Singh, Thangsingh Chinkholal and many others. Irrespective of their field, these are people who have reached out beyond their own life to help others, to be and to lead the change by practicing Individual Social Responsibility. In Karma Kurry, their stories have been gathered to inspire all of us to recognize the power of one: our own power to be a champion of change, reinforce the positive in society and leave an imprint on the sands of time

“Sometimes I feel that the only concept of fairness in our society is creams like fair & lovely or fair & handsome.”
“The only cure for all social ills in our world today is the discovery and creation of more and more ordinary everyday heroes.”
It was my first experience of reading self-help book and one of the best. Jerry has a way with words which is really impressive. Each story is different from that of the others and teaches you something and also calms you from inside. Jaico is one of those few publication houses which publishes the so called – HAT KE! Books and I actually enjoyed reading it. Book is a collection of short stories and is forwarded by the legend Nelson Mandela. When you feel read the book you will feel connected. Quotes in the books are beautiful and there are paragraphs which clears your inner dilemmas about life. I don’t say something like this often but this book changed my life.
Stories I loved:-
- Go for Change by Gul Panag
- Together , We can (Lakshman SIngh)
- The Audacity of dreams (Vijay Mehta)
- For the love of India (Arun Maria)
Only thing which I didn’t like was that the vocab used in some places was too high Fi and lacked the depth also I felt no connection to some of the stories.
