Wise & Otherwise (Paperback) Book Description

Fifty vignettes showcase the myriad shades of human nature


A man dumps his aged father in an old-age home after declaring him to be a homeless stranger, a tribal chief in the Sahyadri hills teaches the author that there is humility in receiving too, and a sick woman remembers to thank her benefactor even from her deathbed. These are just some of the poignant and eye-opening stories about people from all over the country that Sudha Murty recounts in this book. From incredible examples of generosity to the meanest acts one can expect from men and women, she records everything with wry humour and a directness that touches the heart.


First published in 2002, Wise and Otherwise has sold over 30,000 copies in English and has been translated into all the major Indian languages. This revised new edition is sure to charm many more readers and encourage them to explore their inner selves and the world around us with new eyes.

Sudha Murty has narrated a few simple (but thought-provoking) instances in "Wise & Otherwise". You get to know the attitude of various people in our country. Also, since its a collection of short stories, you can read on and off at your own pace.

Sudha Murthy has again put forth her real life experience in simple words however with great amount of learning. Many a times you will feel that similar things happened with you however you missed certain things to observe / learn from. Again, an excellent work.
