The Human Side: Defining the Essence of Emotions and Life. | Book Review


According to a common belief, only individuals who carry out good deeds are given the opportunity to experience seven births as human beings.

“THE HUMAN SIDE” By Yash Mohanty Doger explores the relationship between the seven pillars of life—Atman, Dharma, Varna, Karma, Brahman, Purusharth, and Guru—and seven human emotions.

The author has outlined the seven pillars of life—Atman, Dharma, Varna, Karma, Brahman, Purusharth, and Guru—in a highly beautiful manner.

The authors attempt to describe seven emotions through seven separate stories. It wouldn’t be inaccurate to remark that this book is a lovely compilation of poetry and prose. Even though every story is in English, they are all interspersed with wonderful Hindi poems. Which amply demonstrates how creative and adaptable the author’s imagination is.

The author of the book leads us on a trip of seven stories that each represent one of seven different emotional states. These stories are all interconnected and extensively discuss human behavior. Depending on how the day is treating us, we display all these feelings each and every day of our lives.

The protagonist is Anurag. He has no real-life goals and is a little lethargic. The next person is the irritable Circle Inspector Ranganathan. The couple in love, Diya and Pranay, have a lot in common. Together, they come to understand the importance of what they have lost. Myra, another student in Ahaan’s class, is welcome here.

This book will help you understand how time passes and how a story always ends up back where it started. How the cycle of births and actions imprisons humans. It also discusses how one’s actions and Karma impact not just their own life but also the lives of succeeding generations.

Strong characters were expertly crafted into the stories by the author. It takes skill to keep readers guessing until the very end of the book when the relationship between the many characters from the first story is revealed.

Yash is a fantastic poet in addition to being a superb storyteller. The impactful verses perfectly match the narrative’s emotions and keep you interested.

This book is interesting and well-informed. This book will undoubtedly open your eyes and get you thinking. Since each of these emotions must be faced and experienced at least once in our lives in a variety of stages, even though the book presents these emotions as belonging to seven different characters, they are all actually a part of just one character. And your actions and karma continue through your subsequent generations in life after life.
