A mixture of innovative and tested formulae for resolving conflicts are illustrated next. The author signs of with a select batch of quote that is both touching and educative.
Summarising the content of his book, Asish Basak remarked, “Although the materials of ‘TO WIN’ are mostly academic and conceptual in nature, the practical applications suggested here may ensure it to be a valuable asset for people. However, it does not claim to promulgate any band-aid approaches to various maladies that plague an average human being. It only aims to make the reader aware of the various factors around him and to give him a general direction for the journey of life, to win and help others to win as well. Actually we must have the will to win before we wish to win. To wish is just thinking or waiting to win; but to will is to make a conscious attempt to succeed or win. “To Win’ is my attempt to make people believe that they can win, to replenish their desires and help them to look up at the sky and see the stars shining and how to feel to be a part of them.”
