Determined, and trying to make a difference, she volunteers to teach yoga to prison inmates. Thank you for the lovely experience of the book! Name: Mitali Email: Comments: Dear Mrs. Bapsi Jain has done a splendid job. Name: Malvika Khatri Email: Comments: The Blind Pilgrim is inspiring! Name: Lilly Markson Email: Comments: I really enjoyed reading Lucky Everyday and the way in which it talked about India and the culture there.

Name: Charmaine Courtis Email: Comments: Some people are born to read what other people write. Lucky's journey epitomizes the vibrancy, as well as the depravity, of two magnificent cities. I read it took you 10 years and I think that the experience this has given us has matured all its readers more than 10 years. And when she finds a job with a former associate, she can't help thinking that leaving Bombay was the best decision she ever made. Is her journey through life destined to be marred by duplicity and betrayal? We all make huge mistakes and over react to many things and like Lucky they stare at us in the face later, like for example Lucky not taking a second opinion from a doctor in Bombay when she is told she cannot conceive. I know it will do very well and I hope everybody reads it and enjoys it as much as me.
Like you say all is perception and I that is so true. I get what the author was going for, the whole spiritual journey--letting go--enlightenment shebang, but wow what a disjointed downer. A crowd of adults stands by the gap in the hedge. Name: Shrikant Krishan Email: Comments: I just finished reading your book and would like you to know that I enjoyed it very much. Name: Jahnavi Joshi Email: Comments: Dear Author, The Blind Pilgrim is an unusual and broad based novel. Will Sean quest to understand his roots and find his father be fulfilled? Name: Lucy Email: Comments: What an inspirational novel it is. So I wish u much happiness and peace, and know that ur book will do very well.
It has something for all of us and switches from being drama to an action packed thriller thriller to a romance novel and a great inspiration for yoga enthusiasts and for people to start yoga. The ending was not pat a little harsh but ever so satisfying that this lady is able to look beyond and even in that state understand that this was what she had to face and had to find the happiness in her heart really brought huge tear drops to my eyes. Keep writing and we will keep reading. That is the strong point of the novel. I was reading it even while waiting for my sons bus and while crossing literally! I think I can relate to some of Lucky's problems because in a way they are universal, what all of us face sometime or the other and the way she overcomes them.
Lucky is resilient, and she discovers that friends are one of her strengths, no matter who they may appear. A useful lesson for us all. The author paints every setting in the novel with a meticulous brush; the vividness of the characters and their surroundings is simply astounding. After The Blind Pilgrim became a bestseller in India, Penguin acquired rights to the book in 2009 and subsequently published the book worldwide under a new title Lucky Everyday. You would not know what she has gone through till she has been compelled to reveal.
She delivers an inspiring reminder that love, anguish and spirituality have a place in both turbulent and peaceful times. Lucky's experiences disclose the veiled bigotry of society and the lonely path to salvation. Originally published: The blind pilgrim. I will be waiting patiently. I particularly liked Shanti and her teachings and yes now I truly look at my possessions as illusions and they no longer own me! And I mean that duh simply the best! Lucky could not have been so successful without a strong body that yoga provided her with!!! Lucky Everyday is a philosophical novel about the crooked path toward spiritual enlightenment.
