The Stranger in the Lifeboat: A Gripping and Thought-Provoking Novel

The Stranger in the Lifeboat is the latest novel by bestselling author Mitch Albom, who is known for his inspirational and uplifting stories. The book follows the survivors of a luxury yacht that explodes in the middle of the ocean, leaving them stranded on a lifeboat with a mysterious man who claims to be God.

The novel explores the themes of faith, doubt, hope, and human nature, as the characters face their own personal struggles and question the identity and intentions of the stranger. Albom skillfully weaves together the backstories of each character, revealing their secrets, regrets, and dreams, and how they relate to their current situation. He also creates a suspenseful and engaging plot, with twists and turns that keep the reader guessing until the end.

The Stranger in the Lifeboat is a book that will make you think about your own beliefs and values, and how you would react in a life-or-death scenario. It is also a book that will touch your heart and inspire you to appreciate the gift of life and the power of love. Albom’s writing style is simple yet profound, and his characters are realistic and relatable. The book is a fast and easy read, but it will stay with you long after you finish it.

If you are looking for a novel that will challenge your mind and stir your soul, I highly recommend The Stranger in the Lifeboat. It is a book that will make you question everything you thought you knew about God and yourself, and it will also make you grateful for everything you have.

“When someone passes, people always ask, why did God take them? A better question would be why did God give them to us? What did we do to deserve their love, their joy, the sweet moments we shared? Those moments are a gift.”

Secret Sister of Lord Rama

The Vasistha Ramayana, which is written by Valmiki, reveals only ancestry of Dasharatha, his birth and how he became king of Ayodhya. It doesn’t say anything about Shanta an elder sister of Lord Rama. But Ved Vyasa reveals unknown story about Dasharatha’s daughter. This story highlights that Shanta was first female child of Dasharatha and elder sister of Rama.

Birth of Shanta

Dasharatha at the age of 18, he became the powerful ruler of Ayodhya. He was the gallant king of South Kosala who could drive a chariot in ten directions (hence his name)He wanted to marry Kausalya, daughter of northern kosala king, Maharaj Sukausha. Sukausha agreed to the marriage without knowing that he and Dasharatha were closely related coming from the same clan.

After the marriage Kausalya gave birth to a female child, Shanta. Unfortunately she was born with handicap in her leg.  Once he consulted Sage Vashistha. He said that handicap was due to the marriage between close cousins and suggested that she would become normal if she given in adoption to some others.

Dasaratha and Kausalya gave the child in adoption to the childless couple Vershini (Kausalya’s sister) and King Lompad of Angadesh. Later Shanta became normal and her beauty was unmatched. As Shanta grew, the legends of her beauty, valour and intelligence spread far and wide in the land, and many came to ask for her hand in marriage, but she had resolved to only marry a learned and pure man

After Shanta was given in adoption, Dashratha wasn’t blessed with any child. He wanted to perform “Putra Kameshthi Yaga” to compel the Gods to give him a child. Shanta’s husband, Rishyasringa helps Dashratha in performing a Putra Kameshthi Yajna. As a result of this Yajna, Rama, Bharata, and the twins Lakshmana and Shatrughna were born. So, this is quite evident that Rama and his brothers were born after the marriage of his elder sister Shanta.

Many few know that there are two temples where Lord Rama’s elder sister Shanta is worshiped. One is in Kullu (Himachal Pradesh) and the other one is at Sringeri in Karnataka.

In South India, especially in Karnataka and some areas of Kerala, Lord Ram’s sister is recognized. There is a similar belief in some other areas including Chhattisgarh that before the birth of Lord Rama, there was a child of Dasharatha and Kaushalya.

Show Good Will to All

Be fearless and pure;
never waiver in your determination or
your dedication to the spiritual life.
Give freely. Be self-controlled,
sincere, truthful, loving,
and full of the desire to serve.

Realize the truth of the scriptures;
learn to be detached and to
take joy in renunciation.
Do not get angry or
harm any living creature,
but be compassionate and gentle;
show good will to all.

Cultivate vigor, patience, will purity;
avoid malice and pride
Then, Arjuna, you will achieve
your divine destiny.”
― Bhagavad Gita
