Tuesdays with Morrie- The book I fell in love with…

Posted on Updated on




This book holds a sentimental value for me, I don’t know for what exact reason but it has some kind of purity, it has the words coming out of a beautiful soul. I don’t know Morrie personally but I feel as if I know him completely, as if he is a part of me now. He is speaking with such sincerity and optimism right there on his deathbed, trying to be close to as many people as possible. He just wants to take as much possible by giving more than he could have in such a state. A person full of love, so much love and tenderness. Each and every touch is so important for him, each and every little thing makes him so superfluously happy. He was thoroughly a people’s person. A person for the people more likely.

I sometimes wish to know him personally, sit with him like Mitch and just talk, talk about everything that I’ve in me, its plain stupid but then that’s how it is.

The cover of this book is exceptionally ordinary, with a maroon border and pale yellow skin. In stark contrast with what is presented inside.It reflects a very unusual overwhelming student teacher relationship reminding us of some special things we have learnt from our educational institutions that would never escape our minds. By the end, the reader is certain of Morrie’s death, and it obviously evokes many emotions. The story is made all the more special with the lessons that the dying man teaches the author and from the chapters of his own experiences.

It is that book which will stay with you for life! It will be that book which you will mark with markers and pencils, just to read the beautiful words by a beautiful man again and again. ❤
