Between U & Me

by Aparna Sharma
( Foreword by PadmaBhushan Dr. Devi Shetty )

After the tremendous success of ‘Reality Bytes – The Role of HR in Today’s World’, in English and Hindi, Aparna Sharma’s second book, ‘Between U & Me’, is a genuine endeavor to share with the readers, ‘extraordinary lessons’ from ‘ordinary people’.
All of us encounter obstacles or face challenges in our lives. As the challenges become complex, quite naturally, we feel the need for motivation. While self-help and inspirational books are available aplenty, most of them sketch the journey of the who’s who or celebrities whose advice, though genuine, is difficult to follow for common people.
“But why should we take inspiration from celebrities alone?”asks Aparna Sharma.“Since it is human nature to share and learn from others, why not seek advice from ‘ordinary’ but experienced people around us, who can guide us effectively and practically to resolve our problems?”

It is with this thought that Aparna has written the book, ‘Between U & Me’. What makes Aparna Sharma’s book stand out is that unlike the norm, she does not use the lives of famous personalities to draw inspiration. Rather, the book portrays the real-life stories of the people around her, who have inspired her and made a positive difference to her life– from her educational to personal and professional life. The protagonistsof this book, are so-called ‘ordinary’ people, but each is an achiever in his/her own right. In simple, lucid language, they have chronicled their life journeys, the circumstances and challenges they faced with tenacity to reach the pinnacles of success, for the benefit of the readers.

From an octogenarian former editor of the first English women’s magazine in India, to an entrepreneur who applies the ancient knowledge given by Chanakya to the business world, to a household help, tested by circumstances but firm in spirit, to a young, guitar-strumming renunciate, they span generations and are from different age groups and strata of society. However, the common thread that runs between them is, their attitude towards life and the fact that the transformation they brought in their lives, began with themselves.

Some of these stories will leave you teary-eyed ,a few will make you ponder over the unjust norms of society while others will leave you marvelling at the sheer persistence of these people in the face of all odds. But all of them will, no doubt, change your perspective towards life and leave you motivated and empowered to take on your own challenges and rise above your situation.

Each reader will find in the book, something that will resonate with his/her life, either personal or professional, making it a must-read for people of all ages, as well as a wonderful gift.The best part of the book is that the reader can revisit the book any time he/she feels the need for much-required encouragement.

The extraordinary qualities of these people exist within each one of us too. All that is needed is for us to get in touch with them, brush off the layers of conditioning or neglect, and polish them to a shine. So, here’s wishing the readers success in letting their inner strength shine through, just like the people in this book!

The book is published by Vishwakarma Publications.

“Aparna’s innovatively themed book “ Between U & Me” reaffirmed something that I personally believe in – that life itself is a message and has a message. She presents 14 rich lives from diverse backgrounds who neither seek fame nor recognition. The book’s matter of fact writing and detail orientation make it more authentic and relatable. This book is certainly not about ordinary people but is definitely for the common individuals who seek inspiration from stories of those who lived an inspired life. Truly Inspirational – it has struck a chord with me. ”

Dr.Adil Malia

“Hidden inside each one of us is an unidentified 'Phantom' of potential talents. This is yet another of natures gift to each one of us . Unfortunately, it has a tendency to remain hidden & bottled-up within. Albeit fully capable, the dance of this Phantom remains un-choreographed into an opera. Aparna brings out this aspect very well in her book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the 'first-snatch' versions of the chapters of this lovely book as it was getting into print.

It is the prime job of every leader to identify that bottled-up talent within the people who work with her so that she systematically opens the bottle and navigate the potential of this Phantom into a reality. Totally aligned to Aparna's clear thinking on this subject.

Rightly indicates can achieve success in any sphere by sheer dint of hard-work. I enjoyed reading every chapter in the book. Will inspire you & keep inspiring every time you fall short.

Highly recommended !!! “

Vikesh Wallia

“Congratulations Aparna for the second book ! The best one can do for the Society at large today is to add to the self confidence of ordinary people that they can also do extraordinary things ! I have read the book and enjoyed thoroughly. You will enjoy the blessings of many for your this endeavor !! Our country needs many more such books and many more Aparnas !”

Dear Aparna, A hearty congratulation on your achievement for successfully publishing another book. "Between U and Me"

It's a book that will make readers think and research by inner journey, "Between Me and Me!!".

It's not just you sang my song in this symphony, but it's a total master piece album. You have put all your hard work and efforts in it. It is an ideal thing to appreciate people to follow their dreams and achieve extraordinary heights being an ordinary one. Positivity plays an important role to move forward and keeping belief that what you are doing is a great work. I am pleased that everyone in book specially you gave my "Campaign Against Depression" and "Duty revolution " a practical ground. This kind of motivation is required in our competitive society. All the best to you for writing more books in the future.

My prayers for your creative enthusiasm always.

Om namo Narayan!”

I have become a great fan of your work.
I’m already glued to your latest book "Between U & Me".

Novel Concept!The language is simple, inspiring and connecting.

Madhusudan Joshi

“Between U & Me” is a ‘must read’ for everyone, especially for the younger generation. What is amazing is the you have identified and captured heroes from common people around us. It clearly shows that you, as an Author have an open mind to acknowledge them irrespective of their age. Your personal story is touching, teaches about resilience and success. Looking forward to one more from your desk!

Dr.Ashalata Menon

“Your book, “Between U & Me” is really worth reading. Very different from other books, as you can start from any chapter. There is something to learn from each person. I was very touched by your story, since I know you for so long as a doctor, but did not know about your life & struggles. Well done! I have already recommended the book to my family, friends & patients too!”

“Between U & Me by Aparna Sharma -

All proceeds of this book go to UDAAN a scholarship initiated by the author Aparna Sharma to promote education of the girl child in her school where she has studied. Her rewards, her professional life and career, her journey started here, what a unique manner of giving back to the school that moulded her.

The book expresses that even common people have extraordinary lessons to learn from. This can inspire common, average people from all works of life who have determination, willing to work hard, have clarity and focus and are willing to tackle all difficulties can also be successful.

The selection of people in the book “Between U & Me” come from all works of life, uneducated, skilled, talented, educated and highly educated, free lance, private sector, government & public sector and each one has a story to tell.

Highly recommended. Do read!”

Meenakshi Mirajgaoker

“Inspiration comes from different places and Aparna’s book has provided many opportunities for everyone to get that spark that could set your goals on fast forward mode. It’s a story of people who have not allowed difficult situations that could easily pull people down, but instead used these as a inflexion point to change their lives from ordinary to extraordinary. “Between U& Me” is a must read for all ages.”

Suresh C.Tripathi

“Your book , “Between U & Me” is very very inspiring. I have requested my children to read it too. Everyone has a story & one can learn from it & relate. Congrats for bringing out such a nice book!”

D.B Sengupta

“Watched the Video with Dr.T.V Rao praising the initiative. You have always been exploring new ideas but the most striking part in this attempt of yours is to include the common man into your endeavour. So, from rubbing shoulders with the high profile HR fraternity to the common man on the street, the canvas of different class of society is now complete through your book . You are a tireless worker. Adulations & compliments are not very important to you but people’s interest in your work keeps you Inspired. ‘Between U & Me’ is a wonderful piece of your alignment with the common people whose fight for existence despite all odds go unnoticed unless people like you take time to share their expectations & experiences. Please keep your efforts going for the good of the society. Best Wishes.”

Girdhar Balwani

“Your book,“Between U & Me” gives an insight into the lives of fourteen(14) so called ordinary people. It made me feel that no one is ordinary. Each one of us is special !

Each story provides an array of life gems and concludes with life lines and words of wisdom. They show us what truly matters in life and provide guidance on the values that are important and the path to real happiness.

“Between U & Me” takes us through multiple life journeys on which we can reflect and relate to our own lives. Truly inspiring!

Thank you Aparna! “

Sangeeta Ghosh Dastidar

“Many Congrats for writing such a wonderful book, “Between U & Me”. Frankly, there are many such collaborative books of people being featured but simplicity in presentation and simple language is the trump card for this book. I wish this book gets translated in other languages too, so that everyone is able to access these lovely life stories… wishes always!

Prashant Sharma

The book , “Between U & Me” is about the triumph of the underdogs against all odds. A must read for those looking for Inspiration in life.

Prashant Dalal

Aparna, your book “Between U & Me” is a very good inspiration for life. A few lessons I learnt personally are to always be positive & to stay connected with positive people & that one can achieve success by strong determination.

Prabha Kishore

Review - Between U & Me” a book by Aparna Sharma

“As the title says it’s all between U and Me, Between Us. Our simple lives, our dreams, our struggles and our approach to lead life. All these in the form of 14 different idols she has written about, 14 different people who have inspired her along her life, those people who she thinks are ordinary people & have extraordinary lessons to teach.

Believe me, every individual is extraordinary given the contribution they have made towards the society. While reading through every profile, one relates oneself to some or the other story of one’s own life. Every individual is Simple yet Unique. Inspite of all the odds faced in their lives, these ordinary people have achieved success. It’s difficult to give insight of every story written as it has to be read in words of the author to feel it. But yes, I have loads of learnings. Most important, it’s all about US, how we live our lives. Not everyone gets what he/she dreams, neither everyone gets opportunity to achieve what he/she wants but it’s how you shape your life to achieve it. There’s always one who lends you a helping hand being your Guru , being your everything to set a path for you but most important Its always one and only “You” who can motivate yourself.

Not to forget, there is a 15th profile of the author herself to tell you the journey of a small town girl to now a working professional and a published author. The most beautiful part is the personalized letter she has written to every person in the book and one to herself as well. Loved it to the core. It’s not easy to pat your own back!

The journey of these 15 people will truly set a learning curve for every reader. Wonderful you are Aparna . Glad to know you and have this jewel with me."

A small take of mine :

"Dream for the Stars
Work Hard to touch them
Fight hammer and tongs
Achieve the Best
Live to the Full
Give back to the society
Let that be Life!"

Dr. P. L. N. Raju

Ordinary is also Extraordinary. What counts is the spirit of adventure and commitment to excel. It moves the "ordinary" to become "extraordinary" professionals and human beings. What could be a better way to demonstrate this other than through biographic stories of highly acclaimed achievers in our country in Aparna’s Inspirational Book , “Between U & Me “! Brilliant collection from diverse sections of our society. Real life narrations setting examples for others to emulate. Proud of you, Aparna! Way to go……

Anita Arjundas

The Book is a powerful window to the world of 15 inspirational achievers. Candid sharing of successes and failures, a common thread of humility and positivity, and a conversational style peppered with takeaways and life lessons make for an interesting and inspiring read. A very well written book, Aparna!

N.S Rajan

The book "Between U & Me" inspires students and professionals with stories about ordinary individuals reaching great heights in their lives. Aparna through the book has proved an aspect that “impossible is possible”.
Aparna will always remain a source of inspiration and rejuvenation for young and senior professionals and "Between U & Me" is a reflection of the same.

Ramesh Iyer

“ The Book U & Me is truly inspirational. This is not a book but a guide. It serves as a great support to all age, gender, professionals and anyone else without exception. It helps build self confidence and makes you believe to try what otherwise one would have never attempted. Very interesting that personalities chosen are from diverse fields but have very common quality and have achieved success through Hardwork, Determination, Passion, Discipline and self Belief. A Great Lesson.
To me, personally it helped me ask a very critical question- Have I Done enough ? All energised to keep going ! Thank you Aparna :)

Nitish Pania

“It is an inspiring book, with real life stories of strong people who came against all odds to make their life a meaningful one for the society. Thanks Aparna for stitching up such a beautiful collage, full of life’s colors.”
