Colours of Life: A Colurful Magic, by Md Taslim, is an inspiring, aesthetic work of fiction that encourages readers to celebrate life in all its colors. The author is comprehensive and perceptive when discussing the myriad aspects of life, from simple pleasures to deep pain. Using an eclectic cast of characters, each vignette stands on its own as a gem of wisdom. When combined, it creates a work of the human experience that we can all relate to. A kaleidoscope of emotions is portrayed here, from love to sadness, joy, and hope. If you like writing that helps transform the way you think about things and offers new ways to see the world, this book was made for you.
Taslim shows in a poetic way how you can view life's ups and downs by posing questions through the narrative like what you believe, what is truth, what you value, the importance of memories, avoiding revenge, etc. The simple yet profound ideas can help readers see life differently, no matter who you are. I like the discussion on the soul remaining young, even as the body ages. The author's style comes across as insightful and wise, almost as if he is offering proverbs or advice from a sage. There is a good balance here of positive and negative, just as there is in life. The ideas presented here are those we may have heard before but can never hear often enough, like having humanity instead of ego, doing good for others, avoid cheating others, give more, be patient, understanding, etc. This would make an excellent choice for a book club, classroom discussion, or gift for someone who needs direction. If you're looking for a therapeutic book on the human experience that entertains as well as enlightens, be sure to put Colours of Life: A Colurful Magic by Md Taslim at the top of your reading list.
