What triggered the idea of this book?
“It is indeed a dream come true for me, to see this mammoth project complete, and ready to enlighten many lives. Throughout my life specially in my career as a finance professional, I met and interacted with many amazing individuals. These interactions originated several interesting real-life incidents. On the other hand, my association with CA Chapter, ICC and Toastmaster offered me abundance of opportunity to learn intricacies of communication. Slowly I learnt and realized how significant and valuable communication is, in life. Writing has been my passion from childhood and when I started sharing these incidents through small articles, many were published in different journals. They say, Journey of a thousand mile begins with a single step, and that single step for me was in early 2020, when Gulf Times published my article on communication in their monthly magazine ‘society’. I owe this to its editor-in-chief Mr. Amjad Vanimal for believing in my words. Suddenly I was flooded with calls from friends who applauded my efforts and asked me to write more on this subject. That was the point that triggered converting a mere 4-page article into a big 200 page book. The idea was to have a book that can give a holistic approach of mastering one’s communication. I soon realized that I need someone to share the burden and help me as a co-author. I approached my close family friend Manzoor, a profound speaker having command in the field of communication, who agreed without any hesitation. After so many detailed discussions, and late-night sessions on what to include and what not to, how to design the chapters, what is relevant, and what will work, we could give it a shape. This book is a result of the patience and hard work of one and half years and I feel proud and highly emotional that it is finally in our hands. My father was a master communicator and I have always admired his wit and presence of mind. This book contains some real-life examples to learn from, which involved my father and situations how he handled conflicts and difficult situations.”
“Soon after my college, I began working with a private company back in my home town in India, that involved extensive travelling, mostly by long distance trains. That is when I developed my love…. for Books! Never was voracious reader but picked all possible reads, from kids stories to novels to self-help and Management books. I just enjoy reading and never ever thought what went behind each book, until, my close family for last many years Girish Jain asked me to help him with his debut publication. While the Pandemic and lock down last year gave us a challenging period, I thought, probably use those spare time to something productive and nodded my head, and there began the journey of Decoding Communication. We spent hundreds of hours of discussions, writing, re-writing, rephrasing, amending, updating, improvising, editing, proof reading and what not? The time, the exertion, the devotion, the efforts, the sweat, has finally paid off. It is indeed a proud moment for us both and our families at this felicitous moment, that our debut book – Decoding Communication is being launched.”
