“While everyone is in a hurry to reach the unseen future, Sahil’s book comes as a reminder to dig into the already embedded indigenous wisdom within us. This is essential to us because a future without a firm rooting to who we are, almost never really feels holistic. When an Author endorses taking charge of our own life, it definitely causes a ripple effect in the collective too. Simple methods that are tried and tested sure make one expect more from Sahil.”

“Really appreciate that Sahil took the pain and effort to author this book “Life the way you Design”, it is in itself a pièce de resistance.
In our daily life many of us forget how precious, valuable life is. A must read for children, teenagers, adults for sure. I could connect an analogy to it of when a very rich guy asked a now retired young soldier – what if i give you 10 million dollars and say u can’t wake up tomorrow morning, will u take it, the solider says if I can’t wake up tomorrow i won’t take the 10 million dollars. So the guy asked the solider – why would u complain about life so much if life in itself was worth more than 10 million dollars that u just refused. This book by Sahil helps us with the perspective of treating life responsibly. Wonder read !”
