Henry Wadsworth Longfellow rightly said, “Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.” While everyone has their own struggles, not everyone would share their grief with others. In this case, random acts of kindness are the best way to not only help people, but also to lift your spirits. You never know if one small, thoughtful gesture can make someone else’s day.

Recently, Markings ‘KHUDI’, a motivational, inspirational and developmental publishing platform, launched its third title, ‘Wind Beneath Your Wings - A Book of Blessings’ by Marzia Hassan; after ‘Choti Choti Khushiyan’ and ‘Hum Nay Suna Hum Nay Dekha’.

‘Wind Beneath Your Wings - A Book of Blessings’ is a compilation of everyday blessings to boost happiness for yourself and others. This simple practice of wishing well takes only moments and it starts a powerful positive ripple effect in our environment. It is divided into four sections: General blessings; Prayers for your married life; As you grieve; and Prayers to encourage you. The book encourages its readers to share the blessings of each page by simply tearing off the page and to find creative ways to spread these wishes amongst people they love, to those who come across them during the day and perhaps even those who sometimes challenge you. One can do this by leaving pages in unexpected places as a surprise, to use them in place of greeting cards et al.

Speaking about her book Marzia Hassan said, “This book is my way of spreading love, compassion and kindness in this world.” Moreover, CEO Markings Kiran Aman said, “I am delighted to publish a book that can be shared in so many different ways to create good vibes all around. This title and its publishing style also reiterates this notion of books being far more than the sum of their words: it is the spreading of a message, giving birth to positive feelings and encouraging the sharing of emotions in what becomes an exchange between the writer, reader and receiver.”
