कर्ण शाक्यको “खोज” पढे पछि त्यसको बारेमा एउटा समिक्ष्यात्मक लेख लेख्न मन त लाग्यो तर मैले गरेको समिक्षा केबल एउटा उपदेशको पुंज मात्र बन्न सक्यो। मैले उपदेश दिन खोजेको पक्कै पनि होइन, “खोज” किताबको बषय-बस्तु नै उपदशात्मक छ। यस्तो भनिरहदा, मैले कर्ण शाक्यलाई उपदेश दियो भनि दोष लगाएको पनि होइन। उहाँले प्राप्त गरेको सफलता र नापेको उचाई एउटा साधाहरण मानिसको सपना हो। मानिसले यदि सहि तरिका अपनाएर सफलता हासिल गरेको छ भने- सफलताको गोरेटो एउटा यस्तो आध्यात्मिक मार्ग हो जसको चुलीमा पुग्दा-नपुग्दै हरेक ब्यत्ति गुणि भइसकेको हुन्छ। अनी हुँदैनत गुणी ब्यत्तिको बिचार उपदेशात्मक?
लेखक शाक्यले किताब भरि आफ्नो सफलताको उदाहरण प्रस्तुत गरेका छन। जीवनको विभिन्न समय खेप्नु परेको समस्या र प्राप्त गरेको सफलताका प्रसङ्गहरु पुस्तका आर्कषणक हुन। उच्च बिचार र देशको प्रसङ्गमा लेखक शाक्यले भरतका पूर्वराष्ट्रपति ए.पी.जे अब्दुल कलामलाई हवाला दिदै कलामले सन् २००६ मा हैद्रावादमा दिएको मनतब्यलाई अघाडी सारेका छन। खोज किताबको समिक्षा गर्न बसेको म अन्तत: कलामको मनतब्यमा नै रोकिन पुगें। मलाई लाग्छ ए.पी.जे अब्दुल कलामको प्रस्तुत बिचारनै खोजले दिनखोजेको प्रमुख ज्ञान हो।
प्रस्तुत छ भरतका पूर्वराष्ट्रपति ए.पी.जे अब्दुल कलामको मनतब्य:
Why is the media here so negative? Why are we in
We are the first in milk production. We are number one in Remote sensing satellites. We are the second largest producer of wheat. We are the second largest producer of rice. Look at Dr. Sudarshan, he has transferred the tribal village into a self-sustaining, self-driving unit. There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed in the bad news and failures and disasters.
I was in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was the day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. The Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of a Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his desert land into an orchid and a granary. It was this inspiring picture that everyone woke up to. The gory details of killings, bombardments, deaths, were inside in the newspaper, buried among other news.
I was in
Got 10 minutes for your country? If yes, then read; otherwise, choice is yours. You say that our government inefficient. You say that our laws are too old. You say that the municipality does not pick up the garbage. You say that the phones don't work, the railways are a joke, the airlines are the worst in the world, mails never reach their destination. You say that our country has been fed to the dogs and is in absolute pits. You say, say and say. What do YOU do about it?

We go to the polls to choose a government and after that forfeit all responsibility. We sit back wanting to be pampered and expect the government to do everything for us whilst our contribution is totally negative. We expect the government to do everything for us. We expect the government to clean up but we are not going to stop chucking garbage all over the place nor are we going to stop to pick up a stray piece of paper and throw it in the bin. We expect the railways to provide clean bathrooms but we are not going to learn the proper use of bathrooms.
We want Indian Airlines and Air

Dear Indians, The article is highly thought inductive, calls for a great deal of introspection and pricks one's conscience too... I am echoing J.F. Kennedy's words to his fellow Americans to relate to Indians...."Ask what we can do for
