I had just joined the medical college. I shifted from my home city to the place where the college was located. In those initial days, I was feeling very home sick. I had never stayed away from my home anytime before that.
Just to kill some time and to get rid of home-sick feeling, I left my hostel room, and was wandering around a railway station. I don’t remember now, how and why I was attracted to a bookstall near the railway station.
Not knowing what to look for, I just started going through various magazines placed in one of the shelves of the bookstall.
Suddenly my eyes saw and read ‘Awaken the giant within‘ – a book by Anthony Robbins. I could not make sense at that time what was it all about, and did not bother to read even the subheading of the book. I just got hooked on it. I think I was blank and then, something inside me asked the bookstall-man to give me the book, so that I could see what it contained.
I scanned through various pages and decided to buy it. That was my first ever bought Self-help Book!
