My review


I have to first apologize to Dr. Ajay Yadav because he sent me the synopsis of his book few months ago but I was quite busy with my life, I was unsure whether I will be able to review it on time. The main put off for me was this is a lengthy novel containing 400 pages. It is impossible for me to read without any distractions. So I didn’t reply him. But when I stalked his page accidently, I was intrigued by various reactions of the readers. I messaged him back by blindly reading the synopsis of his book alone, and spoke to him and he told me to read the book first and then tell my views and opinions.

My review is going to be different from other bloggers who have reviewed this book already. The author has given a simple solution to all the problems that exists in the world. How can we lead a happy life? How to eradicate crimes all over the world done in the name of religion/country from its roots? You will get a satisfactory answer.

From where I see is written in first person, Dr. Ajay which is of course, the author himself. But the story is pure imagination not pointing to any particular individual even if you read the book, you may get a feeling, I have met someone like Shruti, Dr. Ajay , Aslam, Rashid, Deepti or any other character in the book. This is what makes the readers engrossed. The author has brilliantly managed to get the attention of the readers. In the first chapter, we learn Shruti is poisoned to death. Who killed her doesn’t matter. What killed her is more important to save more Shruti’s from getting killed.

So in the name of religion, caste & community how many people are affected in India? How many women and young girls(even a just born child is raped) are raped, gang raped, harassed, and brutally murdered only because they are born in the wrong gender. So being born as a girl or a boy has its own benefits and demerits. We don’t follow a particular culture (common agreement among people) even by birth we are Indians.It is because of culture less people many people are affected at large is what I understood from the novel. That is why the need of hour is creating a Utopian world. Almost in all countries, they are teaching English, so why can’t we make everyone in the world even the poor and illiterate learn this language? The author has a valid point. I agree with him.

I have heard this phrase friends with benefits. Most of the people in India who are from a particular religion, caste, community believe it does more good to them. Is it really true? It meddles with people’s mind and diverts their true purpose of birth which is being human first. How can you become a human from being a bad omen is explained elaborately in this novel .What is distracting us from acting as humans? -Bad educators/Bad Omens. It corrupts weak (mentally and emotionally) people’s mind to act in an inhumane way.

There is a famous saying, we dig our own graves. The mystery revolving around Shruti’s death and her nephew’s death is tragic. “We are very God fearing, religious people who fail to follow most basic teaching of religion ‘forgiveness’’. What we sow we reap.When a person doesn’t think logically, they think their ‘Religion/community is in danger’ , they try to convert more and more people to their religion either by bribing them or coercing them, why do they do it, did their God ask them to do so. They are forgetting they are humans first and the rest comes next.

The novel is a real eye opener and Human rights is a subject that must be taught in schools instead of History.

China has 159 judges while India has only 15 judges per million for the same number of population (I think I read it correctly). What is the reason? No money, no honey in India!!!. The author says the rich people must pay tax amount higher than others so that the poor people get what they deserve.

I have read many novels that spoke about a particular social issue boldly, but the solution to eradicate the problem was not given. Dr.Ajay Yadav is different and he has outperformed them all. His book creates magic in the minds of the readers. How to solve all the problems existing in the world? Not just read this book, implement it in your own household.

Watching Saas Bahu serials in leisure time which does no good only bad, movies that are created for commercial reasons by depicting women as a glamour material(especially the item songs) poses threat to the life of woman and young girls.Only Doordashan channel has not changed and follows the rules and regulations of Indian culture strictly as mentioned in the book is as per my opinion, it is correct.

“If any social or religious dogma harms any human mentally, physically, emotionally and financially then it is the matter of shame not pride”

“Logically we are humans first; nationality comes next and then should come religion, sect or caste.”

No one has the right to exploit any other human being whatsoever the reason may be”.

My verdict

The irony of the world is nobody is willing to listen to good educators. From where I see is a novel written by one such good educator, Dr. Ajay Yadav. I will boldly say this to all my fellow bloggers and friends. The number of books you have read so far is not important. What is more important is that the number of books you have read that were written by good educators. We don’t need teachers who just read from a book and vomit it. If they are good educators they will be able to make almost all the students excel in whatever subject they are teaching. They will be able to brainwash students to create a brighter future for them, that is why they are getting paid right. Simply fooling themselves by showing proofs of their multiple degrees, what is the message they are trying to give, I am namesake, a teacher, a lecturer, if the student is not willing to learn, I am not responsible. For me, my salary is more important than teaching the students. What an unhealthy culture?When i was studying M.com in Bishop Heber College(completed one year-there were more than 60 students), the mentality of most of the lecturers(except one or two) were like this.How small minded people they were.They will teach the students for 20 minutes, then just sit and relax , when the bell rings they will escape.Then shout at the students for their poor performance.What example they were giving to the students.Autonomous colleges(My previous college was okay) must fire such lecturers and recruit good educators.Just failing the students in Internal exams and passing the students in external exams so that they don't lose their job is done by foolish people who are no use to the society.They just want to exploit the students because they are lazy, will they do this to their own children?

I can't believe this

Did the editor’s sleep read the book? Did the publisher at least go through this book?I don’t want to criticize anyone. They have done a huge mistake producing this as one book. It should have been like this From where I see, which talks about what killed Shruti? Kill the sin, not the sinner. Lines taken from the book itself.

Then another book, Tragedy, sorrows and Struggles of all countries: A lengthy conversation, serious talks on Politics and righteousness of human behavior(these lines are also taken from the book itself).I can understand we have to learn about all countries and their history of war crimes and the mistakes done by their leaders, especially kings like Ashoka and Alexander who killed people in the name of war but praised by people as Ashoka-the great, Alexander-the great, Mahatma Gandhi(Father of our nation????), did we go overboard because of our unshakeable sentiments for our respective countries/some people that we didn’t realize that we are humans not animals, where is logical thinking? Iraq, Pakistan, Jammu & Kashmir, Sri Lanka(LTTE), South Africa, India, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Palestine, United States, United Kingdom, Germany, China, (Is Japan and Korea missing in the book-blame it on the number of pages which made me forget?)are some of the important countries where the leaders should buy this book and read it. The origin of all religions and their religious book when it was published, (why in this language?), who is the creator(Gods and Godesses) are also discussed elaborately (Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam to name a few). The message is loud and clear for me. In order to captivate the minds of the readers fully and not partly, to make them understand the lesson, never forget it in their lifetime, this book should have been produced as two books (250 pages each).

1. From where I see 

Rating 3.5/5

2. Tragedy, Sorrows and Struggles of all countries: A lengthy conversation, serious talk on politics and righteousness of human behavior 

Rating 5/5

Excerpt from the book

Those in power ensure that their achievements are highlighted and repetitively convey through various medium. And your age is the most impressionable to leave long-lasting imprints,” he said.” Are you preparing for Gandhi Darsham?”

“Yes”.

“So can you tell me when did Gandhijee leave the country?”

“I don’t remember the year, but I know he first went to England to study law and then to South Africa where he started a crusade to eliminate racial discrimination from the world. This was after he was evicted from the first class compartment of the train, “That’s all I knew.

“He was an educated man.While leaving the country wasn’t he aware that discrimination in India was even worse than in South Africa?”my father said accusingly. Underline the word(educated man)

“Ok, when was he born?”

“1869,”I replied instantly with pride.

“And which year did we get freedom?”

“1947,”I replied.

“Were the British waiting for Gandhi to celebrate his 78th birthday to grant us freedom?”

“It was aftermath of world war II, bankruptcy and the revolt of Indian forces which forced them to leave India. Probably, we would have got freedom much earlier if Gandhijee had not helped British by recruiting huge battallions of soldiers to serve them during the First World War”. (The author is definitely a good educator but he is not bold enough, if you want to accuse someone say it boldly if you feel you are right is a lesson I directly learnt from this novel)

He didn’t allow appendectomy, a surgical procedure, on his grandniece Manu who wriggled in bed with excruciating pain for more than 36 hours. Then finally agreed when she was on the verge of death. Nehru commented: ’ideology of Gandhi can only push the country backwards.’

“If you had decided not to help me then why the hell you were enquiring as if you were her father? Does the government give you salary to help people or harass people? Uncle, putting a sandalwood tilak on forehead will not be able to protect you from the curse of the people whom you are harassing.”

“True friendship is not about thinking of your loss, it is about thinking of your friend’s benefit.”

“The misuse in the name of ancient and traditional systems is so rampant that any Tom and Dick can prescribe any powder which may even turn out to be some talcum powder”.

“It is not just about chanting prayers or performing rituals and pilgrimage, if you don’t abide by the principles of morality then in my opinion you have no right to be called religious;you are only a hypocrite”.

“So you believed in love without sex, I mean pure, eternal love; Love of hearts type………?”


“No one wins but war leaves common man in suffering. Yet again there occurred humungous loss of 160000 innocent civilian and 100000 combatants for Mr.Bush’s lust for oil.The dream of Mr.Bush of tasting oil from different oasis, to begin from Iraq and then to Iran and so on was shattered.Fallout of the war was that Iraq, a happy nation was afflicted with insurgency, Shia Sunni war and yet another breeding ground for cultivation of terrorist organisations.
