Ranganna by Arthi Anand Navaneeth - A Book Review

It is so Simple to be Happy, but so Difficult to be Simple!

When you read a book and smile, you know you have a rare book in your hands.

Ranganna is a simple story, simply told. But what i loved about the book was that - i dont know, its hard to describe. These small things, that children enjoy whole heartedly, the whole MIRACLE of the world around us, that we as adults take for granted. I just loved the idea that a child finds so much magic in every day things, and how much magic we as adults have been missing because we simply won't look around!

As a child, i loved the story. it spoke to me (my mental age is 8 or less, by the way). It was a challenge i understood.

As an adult, i loved the world that Ranganna forced me to see with new eyes. After reading the book, i actually opened eyes, and tried to count the number of colors that a room has. Counted 40. 40 COLOURS! And i was missing them every day of my life!!!

A simple, positive, winning story is such a simple way to be happy. But its so difficult to write a simple, positive, winning story.
