All grown-ups were once children

In this extremely competitive world and in the race to move ahead of others and prove ourselves we have left behind some of the core values of being a human. We have stopped enjoying our lives. We have killed our innocence to survive in the cruel world. We have halted our imagination. We have completely forgotten how to live a carefree life. We have forgotten to be a child again. We have lost that curiousness that the child in our hearts once con

The moment I completed reading this book all the above words hit me hard and I realized I have been missing so much in life. I recommend all the grown-ups read this book to their children and you will feel connected to the child that you were once.

It’s the story about philosophy and how you define things in life. When a six-year-old draws a Boa constrictor swallowing an animal he is advised by the grown-ups to put his drawings aside and focus on geography.

That same six-year-old turns into an airplane pilot. He bogs down in the Deserts of Sahara due to a broken engine. The Next day, he is waked up by an odd little voice who invites him to draw a sheep.

The little voice is of none other than The Little Prince who came from another planet. The two become friends and then the little prince tells him how much he fell in love with a mysterious rose on his planet but then realized it was all a lie.

And now wishes to find the meaning of his life. On his way, he visits several planets and met a king, a conceited man, a tippler, a businessman, a lamplighter, and finally an explorer.

But the true advice that he gets is from a ‘canny fox’ on earth.

A one-sitting classic read, it is full of perspectives on every page. The book will remind you of a lost child inside you and will make you feel that the things grown-ups run for have limited relevancy.

Highly recommended for grown-ups.


I would end my quick review of the book by some of my favorite lines from the book:
