It is a fact that in our busy lifestyle of today, we rarely get the time to understand the significance of values which form the basis of our lives and help us to remain happy. The value-based stories given in the book basically aim to carve out this happiness and teach us the ways to lead a happy life.
There is also a box at the end of each story named "Something Extra". This is where the author has emphasized the deep, inner meaning hidden within the story highlighting the moral value associated with it to stay happy and contented in life.
Therefore dear readers go through these 75 invaluable collections of stories and enlighten your mind and soul.
What intrigued me about this book was its funny title- 'Chicken soup for the Souls! I wondered why the soul should be made to feed on the 'chicken soup. I could not reconcile with the thought that the souls in Europe, America or elsewhere were fond of non-vegetarian food.
Anyway, without the best intention to enter into any controversy in this matter, I must admit that I was also inspired to collect relevant stories with an Indian or oriental background. Consequently, I have been able to compile a collection of 162 such micro-stories-thanks to the persistent efforts of several years. Out of these, about 75 stories have been compiled in this book. The main function of these stories is to ignite the process of thinking in relation to the various situations arising in human life. The reader may align himself with a story and deduce morals which may enable him to confront his own problems and find appropriate solutions.
I hope the stories contained in this book, some of which are true while others are fictitious, should serve as a healthy tonic to the minds and the souls of all general readers.
However, the stuff is pure vegetarian, but no less nutritious!
