Professor Chandra is an internationally known economist who has been shortlisted for a Nobel Prize. He is a divorced father of three children who he struggles to understand. Recently, Professor Chandra was a victim of a bicycle hit and run. He saw his life's work flash before his eyes before the accident. While recovering from his accident, Chandra decides he will take a break as his doctor recommended. Professor Chandra decides to try and enjoy himself and follow his bliss.

When I first started reading this novel, I wasn't sure what to expect. To be honest, I am actually still contemplating what I reading exactly. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I was able to relate to both Professor Chandra and his children. I feel there were times that our culture makes us think something is better for children when it really causes doubt and issues in their lives. For example, when I was younger like Chandra and his children, our parents rarely gave praises instead they would make negative comments. They did this to make us feel motivated and try harder. When in truth, it just made me feel like nothing I ever did was good enough. Overall, while reading this book I was asking myself what is the story or plot behind this book but I found myself introspecting my own life path. Which lead to a lot of different discoveries about myself and I wonder if that was the goal of the novel all along.
