The Black Apple - An outsider’s perspective on life, career, relationships, and beyond....

  • ₹ 350.00

In a world of red and green apples, the Black “Diamond” Apple is a rare unknown variety from the family of Hua Niu apples grown in a small mountain city of Tibet. This book is a kaleidoscope of the world and its structures from the eyes of a black apple – an outsider – a thinker struggling with everyday realities of life.

Having felt like an outsider all my life – an estranged soul sitting at the edges of society, questioning existing constructs of human life and dreaming of new ones, I have been silently preparing myself to write this account for 10 years now. It is a raw and vulnerable confession of my chaotic self-discovery journey which encourages you to introspect and formulate your own guide for change.

This book is structured as a deep and intimate conversation with you, meant to outline a bold and unfiltered perspective on life, career, and relationships.

It is my attempt to analytically reflect on some of the most abstract and pertinent questions in life – How do you progress on the search for meaning? What does it mean to be unresolved internally? How do you accept your own darkness? What is the process of detachment from a caregiver? If some comparison is inevitable, who do you benchmark your life with? How is the idea or image of love formed? What does it mean to be an outsider? and many more….

Do you think you are a black apple or know someone who might be? Then read on…
