For the author, Truth Behind the Rainbow originally stared as a journal when she was laid up in bed after a terrible accident. She had suffered compound fractures to her left leg (two adjoining bones) and she was unable to walk for over six months. Her father, Dr. Deepak Vaide, told her to keep herself occupied and to reflect on what she was going through both emotionally and physically. This book is a result of those endless conversations and the research that followed to tie the pieces together and to bridge the gap that exists between the material and spiritual world.
If you know that you are struggling with some issues and don’t just want to know the problem but actually have a practical solution to help yourself and those you love, then this is the book for you. It is like a pocket guide to understanding life. It helps you UNLEARN so you can learn again.
This book is a must read for people of all age groups, but most of all young adults who have their entire lives ahead of them. They have the opportunity to be the best version of themselves not towards the fag end of their lives, Rather NOW!! This moment they can start being the best of who they can be and much more….
