“Fall Like A Rose Petal - A father's lessons on how to be happy and content while living without money” is the title of AVIS' first book, originally published by Westland in August 2014. The publishing rights are currently owned by AVIS and Vaani. To Vaani and AVIS, “Fall Like A Rose Petal”is a spiritual journey.
In early 2008, AVIS and Vaani – his soulmate, friend and business partner – were staring at a bankruptcy of their Firm. A series of business decisions had literally brought them to the brink of penury. “Fall Like A Rose Petal”is their story. It captures learnings from this excruciating, Life-changing, phase that they are still going through.
It also explores the nature and continuum of Life. There is no beginning to the story. There is no end either. There are simply experiences. Of hopelessness. Of fear. Of insolvency. Of pennilessness. And also of faith, patience, love, companionship, abundance and soul. Of integrity and of leading a principled Life, despite temptations to take the ‘easy way’ out of painful or messy situations. This book has been written, in the form of letters from AVIS to his two children, to share how Vaani and he have learned to be happy despite their circumstances.
You too can benefit from their learning, and experience, and discover the right way of thinking, living, working and winning in Life – for yourself!
The Tamil translation of “Fall Like A Rose Petal”, “Uthirum Roja Ithazh Pola”, was launched in October 2019. Read more about both books and order them here.
