Just like you and me was Arjuna, the Pandava hero, on the Kurukshetra battlefield. In his workplace, he stood confused about what to do next. He wanted to quit as the going had become tough.
One of the numerous convincing arguments that Lord Krishna, who was Arjuna’s charioteer, gave in the Gita (verse 3.21) was, “Common men follow the actions of and emulate the standards set by great men.”
But from where can one get to know how true leaders approach their work, you might ask. The answer is right here!
In your hands is the compilation of the episodes of weekly column ‘Happiness@work’, from September 2009 to August 2012.. The book cites over 900 instances from the lives of great persons that give a perspective to the numerous aspects related to modern-day work culture.

Re: Happiness@WORK

In journalism, there is a saying ‘whenever in doubt, cut that out’. But work is not about taking the easy route. Purpose, challenges and satisfaction form the core ingredients of quality work. And I believe Sai sir’s book helps you achieve those three basic elements at work place and in life.
So happy reading ‘Happiness At Work’

Re: Happiness@WORK

This compilation by the debutant Sai R Vaidyanathan of his own columns, has a plethora of quotations and examples from our holy scriptures, some of our great epics and also from the sacred religious books of other religions as well. He has been successful in drawing suitable incidents and anecdotes from the lives of great men and women who have helped shape the history of our world and from the lives and exploits of iconic characters from the epics written by luminaries like Veda Vyasa and Thiruvalluvar, that showcase the person or character's ethical values and their steadfastness in performing their duty. The examples used by him are apt and I being too young to work right now, get a lot of quotations and useful examples from his columns that i use for presentations and debates in my school. I found them to be of great help. I was looking forward to this compilation so that i can get all the examples and quotations at one place. i especially like "Gita Gyan" the box that appeared in some of his columns and has great quotations from The Bhagwad Gita.

Re: Happiness@WORK

What’s great about this book is that it is deeply philosophical yet does not use the encrypted language which only intellectuals can understand.
It can be used as a reference whenever faced with a difficult situation. The historical/ mythological instances are familiar, yet one never connects them to modern life the way the Sai has. I have always admired his work, and now that he has put my name in print (on page 1!), my love for him has grown by leaps and bounds!

@Sai: Your articles have helped me a lot in my professional life and I am grateful to you for a book on philosophy which is not boring. I plan to keep a copy of it in my office.

Re: Happiness@WORK

I appreciate the author’s rigorous effort in putting together gems of ancient wisdom in a lucid form to guide the modern-day working class in situations that many of them find distressing and sapping. The book establishes a unique bridge between tradition and modernity. For his avid readers who have been following him through his weekly column in the newspaper, the compilation will be a one-stop destination to seek solution to a their work-related problems. Putting together around 1,000 instances from the lives of the greats of yesteryears can well be termed as a marvelous effort.
