A story of self discovery and quest for flawless vision. The author believes the modern day malaise is caused by the increasing spiritual void in us and warped thinking that has put man on the treadmill of unprincipled living and search for elusive happiness. He says 'when we clear our minds of the clutter of useless baggage, worthless information and second-hand knowledge stored to bolster our ego that is allowed to weigh upon us for no discernible reason other than to gain sense of ascendancy over others and to justify our otherwise meaningless existence, then clear spiritual highways to blissful reality open up'.
Experiences of early life of poverty forced the author to look at himself. He realized how scripted he was by the social environment in which he grew up. He craved freedom from the shackles of his social and psychological order. He chose to move away from calling himself a Patel to look at himself objectively. This introspective journey enabled him to break with his past and dismantle the shackles of unquestioned customs and beliefs to pave the way for an open mind to flourish.
This fragmentary autobiography reveals how positive interpretations of his experiences have shaped the transformation of his life and taken him to living a stress-free life.
The book title suggests that there is a Patel lurking inside each one of us who needs to be banished. This is the ego that imprisons us in an illusory world that diverts the mind from venturing into the world within where the real person resides.
The book finishes with the author's barrier-shattering principles such as "no-one owes you a favour", "the real enemy is within", and more, which have crystallized from the crucible of daily living and paved the way for joyful living on a unique path!
