Dr Rao attributes all this to destiny. Destiny in this view constitutes the circumstances in which one is situated; but it is the deftness with which one manoeuvres himself through the maze of circumstances that really matters in the final analysis.The book is offered as a possible source to inspire the aspiring individual not only to set noble goals but also find possible ways of reaching them.
