Living The Life - REVIEWS - 5 Stars


Very subtly, through the authors captivating story telling ability one starts to see a common thread developing on the inter connection between all people as he makes us ponder this all important question - 'whose life is it anyway?'

The recurring theme that we as human beings are connected to each other and all living beings, drives home the truth that in order to live a holistic life that is worthy of living, not only do we have to respect all living things, we have a moral obligation to take care of each other.

As the author cleverly takes you through a series of short stories he brings home to roost the idea that no man is an island, we are all connected to each other, our actions have implications on another human beings life, a tremendous responsibility!


He lays out the the undeniable fact that all humanity is connected and with every breath we take, we impact that of others!


In no uncertain terms the author methodically and logically breaks down all the ways in which we can take ownership of the life given to us, and calls on each individual to show up as a citizen of the world to affect change


This books comes at a such as opportune time , when our world is so divided by race and religion and politicians play on people's fear driving us further apart .The urgency in the authors voice is palpable as he tries to awaken us to the fact that our planet and survival of humanity itself is at stake and we have to act now to save it and spirituality is the way !

Everyone at some point in time will like to unlock the mysteries of life-I feel this book will help one in that quest. It is an inspirational book that deals with life not just in general terms but in a literal format amplifying in depth the very nuance of life. The Author captures the reader's attention by explaining the question " Whose Life is it anyway?" which is both witty and enlightening!


The book extensively covers the subject of life as it begins from birth to the very end. The manner in which an individual matures, endures changes when affected by internal, external factors all through the various stages of life.


The Author has laid out few liabilities of contemporary living; such as excessive dependence on technology, misuse of nature by mankind etc. Concurrently Mr. S P. Chokalingam has correspondingly and effectively presented how humanity can be mindful, adapt spirituality, positive use of education,modernization,globalization etc. He does that by gently advocating the need to live life in a holistic manner-that a holistic approach will lead to a peaceful and a harmonious life!

I must say the book is very absorbing from the start and builds up the anticipation for the author to unlock the mystery of life. And even as the author unfolds his profound views on life, the imagery he creates along the way with rich metaphors from ancient times to present day science leaves you wanting more. I think it's an excellent reference book to boot, an encyclopedia of subjects ranging from history to literature to science to sociology. A book like this comes along once in a decade or so, much like the flower Strobilanthes Kunthiana.

A thought-provoking book on leading a meaningful life. Drawing from a rich reservoir of wisdom accumulated through unique life experiences, painstaking research and a lifelong passion for reading Mr. Chockalingam leads the seeker through a self-reflecting journey.

The conversational narrative amplifies the intrigue and the anticipation of the moment of revelation. The author keeps a brisk pace interlacing memorable anecdotes with the voices of other great thinkers to amplify his advice for a good life. Mr. Chockalingam's Living the Life is a must-have personal encyclopedia on the art and science of living. It is a spiritual book, a self-help guide and it is a policy paper on saving the world all rolled into a concise book of 170 pages leaving the reader wanting more.
