Age-old wisdom in a short and sweetly written book. somehow, the simplicity of ideas as well as in the way they are expressed brings smile to the face.

Idli, Orchid and Will Power is not a book, it is a tell tale of Dr. Vithal Kamat, a successful human being. Yes, I will introduce him to you as a successful being because of two primary reasons – first, you can and will get to know a lot more about him and his life through the book and the resources scattered over internet (including Wikipedia as well) and second, because space might fall short for praising him.

I do not score myself as a person, who could comment anything about Kamat sir or his
