Combining powerful storytelling with deep philosophical truths, bestselling author Shubha Vilas’s 5.5 Ways to Lasting Relationships shares relationship advice for the modern age.

Why 5.5 ways though? The answer is hidden in the captivating stories of fabled couples from our epics whose love stood the test of time. Nala and Damayanti, Krishna and Rukmini, Shakuntala and Dushyanta, Udayana and Vasavadatta, Satyavan and Savitri, Draupadi and the five Pandava brothers provide tales of adventure, commitment, and love cemented in unconditional trust, compassion, and forgiveness.

Through these celebrated pairs and their relationships, the author provides solutions to everyday relationship problems. He offers readers a key for each of the stories to ponder over, and absorb, and provides methods to put into practice. At a time when people are losing faith in the existence of true love, six classic love stories offer ways to make your new-age relationship outlast the clock.

If story-telling is an art, the skill of narrating the same with impactful deeper psychological facts about the relationships with the reference of mythical partners of our great Indian epics then Shubha Vilas Ji is definitely a begetter. In the recent release, the author has come up with FIVE and HALF [5.5] ways to last relationships through righteous consorts.

We often devour the epics of India as story tales and thus we digest those as glorifying personifications of the Supreme Being and the respective contemporary. However, through this book, the author brought in a new perception of looking at those stories as an inducement of life lessons to build everlasting relationships.

Contradicting the time and again statement: “Modern relationships can sustain only with the present-day solutions“, this book proves that in any day relationship there are many precepts that were already being dealt with and presented in our ancient time and techniques. I was astonished in many instances during the read and could find answers to the complicated concepts in the relationship in a much more understandable epic reference.

I love “The Golden Letter” chapter which spoke about the love and affection between Krishna and Rukmini. In this, the author talks about the beauty of love, life choices, friendship, emotions, and relation perceptions. ‘The Woman Who Chose‘, the story of Satyavan and Savitri also grabbed my attention where the portrayal of destiny, grit, loveship, emotions, and deeper understandings.

This book turns out to be a life savior for those who are stuck in their relationship, awaiting answers for ever-lasting relationship glitches, who are in a tendency to improve their relationship with respective partners, and for those who are looking for relationship handling guidance.

  1. You may “fall” in love if you can “rise” in responsibility
  2. Learning begins at the end of entertainment.

Shubha Vilas proved his mastery of the “Story-Telling” skill and penned down a perfect book with a blend of our ancient Indian epic role models. If you have the habit of using book highlighters, this book will be a complete justice to that task.
