All about overcoming inhibitions

Y.O.U ('You own Urself') talks about how to own your life and transform it into an entrepreneurial hegemony. It defines empowerment with a four-step formula. A harmony of the visceral self with the nonchalant world.

As a young author, Sharmin Ali has presented a comradeship between life and business in her very first book. From the Newton’s Laws of Science to a theatrical positioning of characters, from applying her engineering mind to a very  subtle and holistic description of how to own your life, the author has portrayed her life in the form of a case study.

A book that would come across as jolting, stark and incomparable, Y.O.U is a must read for all ages. The author provides an interesting depth into the human psyche through her book.

A dedication to the ‘claustrophobic’ youth, the book traverses over four periods of time. From ‘Knowing about Yourself’ to ‘Introspection’, from making friends with ‘The highly segregated blabbering ones’ to realising one’s own secret destiny to freedom, the author has beautifully crafted out a new generation of writing altogether.

It is not just a book about overcoming your inhibitions, but a journey that every individual can associate with. The author portrays an aura of raw energy in her writing, influencing various aspects of life. From reckoning her biggest escapade as Charcoal painting to delivering each sketch with a story, the author sure has a very innovative bent of mind. For all those lost in their lives and the 9 to 5 corporate drones, this could come in handy.
