“Enjoy Nectar-Delight in Life” is a collection of 25 short essays. All these essays come with some counseling. Father’s essays naturally bring with them some counsel. But there are quite different ways of counseling. These essays are not written continuously at one go. Sometimes an essay is written as a personality profile or as a book review. Sometimes events have led to the writing of the essays. But every essay has a central idea, a unique thought. Nectar-delight of life is a great concern in them. Perusing nectar-delight in life means seeking an abundance of happiness in life. This happiness is the ultimate goal of life. For attaining this ultimate goal of life it is necessary to cultivate genuine human values. The essays of this collection in manifold ways express again and again happiness in emphasizing and promoting human values. The author sees that noble values are trampled upon and he experiences great pain. But as a creative writer the pain here is converted into joy. The painful sadness converts his heart and other hearts clean and tidy.
