About The Book

“Action always prompts reaction”. An action if cautiously applied with discreet manner, reaction will be moderate without causing any harm. An action may be negative or positive. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. A man walking in the street should not be absorbed in his own thoughts and should not be day dreaming lest there is likelihood of meeting with an accident. In other words, one should be cautious and conscious in doing any act. It is natural phenomena why people are not cautiously and consciously doing the activities which are warranted.

This book is an overall evaluation of human life. A man is a social animal. It is, therefore, a birthright of every individual to lead a normal life. “Live and let live” should be the motto of every individual and/or a society and/or a nation. There may be discriminations.

In terms of caste, class, creed, colour and community, these also exist in other living beings, viz., animals, birds and insects. This book has made an attempt to cover all methods of psychology but mainly to improve the psychology of an individual. Study of psychology is restricted to behaviour and genes of an individual.

It is no doubt essential to know the psychology to understand an individual. Psychology of an individual points out the positive and negative facets of his body and mind. A man has dual personality – good and evil. These personalities operate at different times based on different circumstances. Improvement of psychology depends on the various factors, viz., hereditary, education, religion, surrounding, occupation, economy and even to a certain extent political government policies of the nation also influence the psychology. A new born baby only feels hungry and thirsty. It, therefore, begin with crying and crying. Only a mother understands him. He is totally influenced and guarded by his mother’s action and dictates. So says, psychology takes birth in the womb of a mother. The author highlights the agony and pathetic conditions of the people of India and attempted to spread peace and happiness all over the country. Basic essentials of an individual should be met for a reasonable survival.

It is a foregone conclusion that all fingers are not equal – so says, all people are not equal, and equality cannot be maintained. Some are born rich and some are born poor. In order to bring about principle of equity and natural justice, different forms of government were introduced by different countries to promote natural justice. But most of the forms of the government fail to achieve the desired objective. The ideology of communism – a political system whereby all property is owned by the community and each person contributes and receives according to their ability and needs, has not achieved its objective in satisfying the people and it failed miserably in country like Russia and Mexico.

The author has made a fruitful comparison of different living beings and attempted to bring happiness and peace in the minds of every individual, which certainly make the nation happy, peaceful and prosperous. He also observed terrorist attacks, foreign interference, riot and strike, war in the country, only spread violence, civil disobedience, unrest and unhappiness all over the country. This is not a happy sign. So feel good, feel happy should be the message to all the people which only can improve the psychology of the people. The objective of the author in writing this book is to appeal to the people to learn the art of living. This can happen only if the psychology is reformed and improved to lead a better life and contribute something to the nation to make it worth living.
