You are what you think
Change your mind, change your results

ATLANTA: How we think affects the way we react to events, situations, people—everything in life. Learning what and how we think can give us the power to dramaically alter our life, says Steve White, author of Please Change Your Mind : Because You Are What You Think.

White has consulted with such businesses as Ingenico, U.S. Bancorp and GTE/Verizon to help employees become more strategic and companies more profitable.

“Each of us places laws on our lens, things we hold to be true: Fire is hot. Grass should be cut at an angle to the house. My self-worth is dependent on being accepted by my peers. Those laws, then, control our emotions and behavior,” White says. “By learning how to control our thoughts—the laws on our lens—we can learn to creat the results we want to achieve in all parts of our life.”

White, founder of several management consulting firms, has personal experience with the efficacy of what he calls “thought examination”. He was hospitalized with depression 18 years ago and underwent cognitive behavioral therapy.

Please Change Your Mind is an easy-to-understand guide written by a layman, not a doctor or a psychologist. He knows firsthand how thought examination can help identify thinking patterns that lead to unhealthy and unproductive behaviors. “For those who are unhappy with the results they keep getting in business, in relationships, in any part of their lives, an alteration of thoughts is the best remedy,” White says.

It’s the unique customs and traditions, the drama of advernture and the deeply embedded sense of brotherhood that defines infantry life for reitred army officer Colonel Mahip Chadha—details he wants to share beyond the battlefield.

Soljer Soljer combines compelling fiction with the actualities of life in the Indian Armed Forces, centering on the tale of a father and son serving together in the Sixth Battalion of the Third Gorkha Rifles, and the events that threaten to separate them forever.

Chadha transports the reader into a world where officers are veritable gods, living conditions are extreme and brotherhood conquers all.

Chadha spent nearly 34 years in the Indian Army, much of time with the Second and Third Battalions of the Third Gorkha Rifles. Weaving in memorable characters and events from his past, Chadha highlights both the joys and hardships of military life.

“A common Indian citizen has little or no idea of the Indian Armed Forces,” says Chadha. “It’s important that I give readers an inside look at what it’s truly like to be a soldier in the Indian infantry, and the brotherhood and sacrifice involved.

The story of the Indian Diaspora is fascinating. Actually, it is cinematic in its scope. There is tumultuous heart-break. There is unbridled joy. Men and women of the Diaspora have led nations. And some have toppled from the slippery slopes of power. Frontiers of science and technology have been pushed. The charts of economic stardom have been busted. The bars of tolerance have been raised. The menace of apartheid has been fought, sometimes from inside prison. The fruits of success have been savoured. The meeting of great minds has taken place. Inspiring freedom movements have been scripted. And much more.

In this story of the Global Indian Diaspora, w­­­e hope that you’ll connect with the many examples that have been illustrated. We also hope that you’ll feel that it is also a great time to imbibe the Universal Spirit while continuing to practice an ancient Indian philosophy, Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam—the whole world is but one family.

Authored by Dr Awtar Singh from Los Angeles, this is a book on his life in India and the USA. After decades of crisscrossing continents, Dr Singh decided to talk about his memories as a young Punjabi immigrant from (then) West Pakistan forced into India, and the tough journey that followed. The book poignantly captures a visit to his house in Pakistan along with his brother, a retired Air Marshal, and his sister who lives close to him in Los Angeles.


Little is known about the thriving Indian community in the French island of Reunion. They number about 250,000 out of a population of 800,000. A large majority of people of Indian origin in this place do not speak English and it has made their connect with India all the more difficult. Their ancestors were taken as indentured labourers by the French during colonial times, about 150-200 years ago.


Au rythme des tambours sacrés 

Written by Christelle Gourdine, a fourth generation PIO who grew up in Paris and also the French island of Guadeloupe in the West Indies, this book is a Francophone account of the author’s quest to know about India, the land of her ancestors. Dismayed by a negative portrayal of India in the Western Media, she wrote about India as she saw it, about its glamour and poverty, its economic accomplishments, and its social burdens.
