I’ve heard a lot about Sudha Murty, as a writer, as a social worker, as a fantastic human. I have been seeing her videos on Youtube sharing bits of her tremendously magnanimous personality. I have also seen people raving about her writing and that how truly a humble person she is. I am happy that I finally read her now 🙂
Three Thousand Stitches by Sudha Murty is a collection of 11 short stories inspired by the author’s life. Through these stories, the author shared bits from her life when she exhibited a remarkable attitude and positivity. Those anecdotes also display her grounded nature and give us insightful lessons.
The story that inspired the title of this book was my favourite where Sudha Murty had her first experience as someone who’d be stepping out of her comfort zone. That story shows that nobody is exceptional. In fact, all of us go through a series of discomforting moments when doing something unconventional, and our will to do it regardless of difficulties makes us a winner.
I loved how simplistic but engaging her writing is which, according to me, is a mark of an able storyteller. Her stories connect with you on a personal level and that, probably, is the reason why the author is loved by the readers’ community. In all, this is a wonderful read and someone who’d want to start with a non-fiction book might opt for this one.
MY RATING: 4/ 5
