After reading about Lilavati's daughters on Abi's blog, I had my dad buy me the book. He just received it from his friend in Bangalore and I got one of those 6 AM smses from him this morning: "Call when you can". I was asleep, then busy, then preoccupied with all that I have going on and decided to wait until I was in a better frame of mind to call him. He calls me in a couple hours..and says he hasn't put the book down since he got it in the afternoon, and can't wait to discuss it with me! His enthusiasm has traversed the trans-atlantic phone call and its such a pity I couldn't continue discussing it with him.
"Follow your dream", he said, "and don't let anything hold you back. Thats what this book is all about. I can't wait to send it to you- who can I send it with?"
The best way to start my day today.
Update: My dad has been having me call him and reading out parts of various awe-inspiring and very real stories from the book ever since. I think I am going to end up "reading" it via the phone before it gets here. :) Thanks, Abi. :)
