By far the best book for inspiration! The way it is compiled is beautiful and it is like meeting the person ourself! I'm happy for buying the book version of it..even though there is an fb page and an insta handle! Loving it! A must buy for all book lover
I have always enjoyed Humans of Bombay on Instagram, and I am a big fan of Karishma and her TED talks. I bought this one as an intro to these stories for a friend who lives in the states and was curious about India.
Love how these stories are so ordinary yet so inspiring....making people remind me but they are not alone and that there are so many unheard voices like them.
The fact that there is hope and strength to smile after everything that happened is what I love the most.
A booster for the hard times in a hardbound version. The stories make me smile, cry, feel immensely proud and just have a myriad of emotions that linger on even after I close the book.
These stories inspire people and give them the courage to face the problems life throws at them with a smile.
Life is tough. Nobody has to teach us this truth. We just know. Through the example of our own lives. Where some teaching is required, is learning how to live this tough life. There are gurus who help us do that. I would argue that this book, Humans of Bombay, is one such guru. By reading the stories of the extraordinary lives of seemingly ordinary people, we can learn. We can get inspired. And we can live. My compliments to Karishma for putting this together. This is a must-read.
