What I liked the most!
This book was a fantastic inspiration, and the way the entire tale was written was incredible. Every detail of the story piqued my interest as to what would happen next. Each chapter of the book has diverse and important morals, and the language and phrases used are basic, making the plot simple to follow. The portrayal is excellent, and the story's core and pearls of wisdom linger in your mind long after you've finished reading it.
'2nd Letter- Space Of Responsibility,' which taught me that we are responsible for the space in which we are at any given time, was one of my favorite chapters.
My idea of the term 'responsibility' completely changed after I came to this cave. Earlier, I used to think that one should be responsible towards their family members and that was it. But today, I realized that we are also responsible for the place we are in and even the people who are with us in that place we are in and even the people who are with us in that place during that time. It doesn't matter whether the people in your surroundings are your family members or not, if they require your help, you are liable to help them.
-'2nd Letter- Space Of Responsibility' (The Boon)
It is a very different type of spiritual story and a must-read plot.
