You must let me know when your next book is out and let me know the title. I so enjoyed your previous book. You have a wonderful way of expressing the really core values of life, which so many people sadly so easily overlook while they are complaining about such trivial nuisances in life. Take good care. Kindest regards Yvonne
I have read your book Good Bye Mr.Patel and I enjoyed reading it. The journey of an individual's life is summed up in a metaphysical abstraction connecting the individual with a higher purpose in life. It felt like reading the Eastern version of James Joyce's Ulysses.
I finished your book last night and just wanted to tell you how amazing I think it is. There is so much to discuss about it, but I loved every page of your journey, your thinking through and your chosen quotations. So much to ponder on and I respect you profoundly for taking so much trouble to convey so much in such a beautiful way. A real gift to everyone.I treasure this as a present from you, but in fact I will be buying more copies to pass on and would like to talk to you about that as I know you will have a store of preference.
Anil Kumar, Thank you for sharing your life's knowledge with me. Honor the spirit in all - that the other person has feelings and emotions like me. Run your own race- to be better today than yesterday. No one owes me a favor - I am doing something for somebody because I want to do it, not to have an upper hand, unconditionally and without any expectations. The real enemy is within - lust for more, anger, greed, attachment and vanity. Resolutions should be for positive and meaningful change in life. Should not be afraid of dying as it is just a process. Your children are not yours - they are unique respectable human beings. Your wealth is my joy - to be genuinely happy for someone else's happiness. We are connected to each other as a part of the same universe. These lessons are for me to digest little by little everyday... and hopefully will feel free as you feel. Sonal Patel, Richmond, Texas

I found your book deeply calming and very thought-provoking. I came away with a strange feeling of inner peace and, having now had the book returned to me from a colleague at work (who, likewise, thoroughly enjoyed it) I shall indeed read it again. I enjoyed it so much that I have ordered this copy to give to a very good and faithful friend of mine (one of the few friends we have in life who stands with you through the good times and bad). My friend (Anne), has a birthday coming up and I think she will really enjoy this as a gift; I very much hope so. Thanks you again for your signed copy Anil. I shall treasure it and read it again and again over the years. With kindest regards, Yvonne Kinasz
I have been meaning to drop you a line for some time to let you know how much I enjoyed reading your book. I found it very inspirational and certainly in keeping with my philosophy on life. When one is faced with life's challenges, it is easy to become a victim of the circumstances we face. Your book inspires a positive attitude towards life and provides a view that whilst one may not be able to control certain unfortunate circumstances in life, one can control the outcome! I look forward to your next book.
I have almost finished your book. I found a lot of courage in the way you handled your difficult situations and did every thing you could to carve out a genuine name and image for your self and your immediate family. Going against certain traditions in one's culture always calls for a lot of courage and I salute you for persevering, without entirely ostracising yourself. Most of all, Anil, I see so much wisdom in all your various analysis of your different situations. You always seem to be able to find an outer and higher meaning to situations. Your ability to go within, and reflect on issues is very praiseworthy. I really admire that in you - I wish I could be so wise!
Love the way the entire book has been laid out - very easy to read - with amazing messages/quotes on each and every page to bring the reader to what is the ultimate TRUTH. Bravo for the work that you have created! This is going to be a HIT and your reward will be the joy that it will bring to others. I will refer to this book - often enough myself to bring me back to the present moment of being connected to the divine. I keep Gentle Breeze close to me and read and refer to it often – thanks for this gift and I know that one day it will touch a million people the way it has touched me.
Anil, Thank you sincerely for sharing your latest publications with me which I thoroughly enjoyed and found very beneficial in maintaining focus on the important things in life. I carry your messages with me daily and find them to be very beneficial’.
Thank You for such a wonderful book! Peace and Light.
Your book comes with me everywhere. It's a blessing. Love,
Thank you for your contemplation seeds that you have created - again! Knowing you is a real gift. I am still loving your book and am about two thirds through it taking one or two 'seeds' most days. Gemma Westcott
On daily basis, I read some of your thoughts & contemplate on them. It truely is a Gentle Breeze of Daily Wisdom. I am very grateful that you wrote this book. I will benefit a lot from it. It is very rewarding.
Every page was a breeze over every Hold. Every chapter was gentle and guilded in gold & depth like the spread of autumn leaves. May these golden leaves fall over many many people & over the earth to emerge once more like the thousand Muscaris of glorious Spring. Well done.
Good morning Anil, I have finished reading, Good Bye Mr Patel 2 The sequel. Its utterly absorbing, your story is as good as it gets, for readers to know your achievement ; not easy especially after losing sight in one eye, brilliantly written. Episode of self-discovery and quest of flawless vision. I feel much nearer to you than before because I know where you come from and you and your thoughts. Thank you for writing.
I have just finished reading both your books – the sequel finished a few days ago. The memoirs make compelling reading – for me especially as there are parallels between our personal experiences e.g. birth in East Africa, the personal and political upheavals and the cricket connections. The constant theme that runs as a thread through both narratives is the power of the mind over the body. The human mind is prone to suggestions – ergo our thoughts are frequently translated into actions. The power of suggestion is omnipotent and whilst your golfing injury probably wasn’t precipitated by your thoughts, what is certain is that you were in a better frame of mind to deal with the trauma and its aftermath. In essence, you were fully prepared – dare I say, after your premonition. Bravo! This is a labour of love – written with clarity. Having published a book (fiction) myself, I can, without hesitation, applaud your efforts in conveying your philosophical/motivational theme without losing the tempo or the reader’s attention. I confess that I would not have been able to amass the kind of word count that you have achieved – without losing the reader! The genre that you have written in – the motivational/philosophical – is by far the most difficult to master. You have done so with ease – very commendable. Bravo!
