Love is not something that can be learnt - if this is what we believe, then there can not be any graver mistake in our life, says Sanjiv Shah in his latest book "Jivavun Etale Chahvun Etale Shikhavun!"
The first ever publication in Gujarati language on the works of Leo Buscaglia, this 270-pages book celebrates his philosophy on the relevance of the subject of Love in contemporary times. Here are some thought-provoking excerpts:
• To live in love is life's greatest challenge.
• In love, each man is his own personal challenge.
• Love is not learned by osmosis. It is actually acted out and acted upon.
• If one wishes to learn to love, he must start by saying 'Yes' to life
• A total immersion in life offers the best classfoom for learning to love.
• Love creates an 'us' without destroying a 'me'.
• The life and love we create is the life and love we live.
"Love can't be explained...Love can neither be taught nor learnt.....Love is an emotion..." - if the society at large carries these beliefs, is it a surprise that the majority of population is suffering due to problems and conflicts about Love?
The author challenges these prevalent myths and beliefs about Love and humbly invites all interested readers to join him in the journey of understanding the philosophy, art and psycho-spirituality of Love through this book.
