R.K. Mohapatra's Somewhat Complex 'Retirement Planning - A Simple Guide For Individuals'

A book on retirement planning that looks at life from the Hindu perspective!

The below quote the author has used is much in the spirit of his offering:

I received this book via Goodreads Giveaways. And I was excited as, though I'm not a retired person - as I've never held a job, I'm getting on in the years and do experience times when I wish I could manage money better. 

Alas, though I'm sure the book is written to be easy to read, it's beyond my brain power to process. At times, the present Indian English, which is more than a bit hither and thither, proved the stumbling block for me and at others it was the financial advice. But then I'm somewhat like Jinu

It breaks my heart to be writing this when the author has so kindly sent me the book and autographed it! I will surely try harder to unravel the good advice with which I'm sure the book is loaded.

One look at the contents will show you that this is a useful book:

It's not the author so much as the editors. Ah well! It does appear that, through some mysterious workings of nature, Indians and many others seem to decipher the many world Englishes of our regions.  

Blue Rose Publishers can easily hire someone like me :D. But no. Alas!

In any case, a great buy for many!
