Drawing heavily from his personal and professional experience, Dr. Singh suggests means and ways to deal with difficulties, suffering, and challenges, through the vicissitudes – that can enable us to reach a higher level of self-understating. “The Stranger Enunciated: One Life Is Enough” is a story entangling the lives of these four quite different people who are bound together by love and friendship. They were living happily, when a stranger enters their lives unwelcome and introduces them to their ‘destiny. The stranger articulates that achieving something substantial in life does not depend solely on arduous work but also on destiny. He discusses the nature of loving relationships: the importance of compatibility and opposites and how love and dependency are different. The story of the stranger and his predictions of impending trouble in the life of the protagonist is mysterious. Will their destiny mold them into its colors or will they find themselves? The book is a curious mixture of autobiography and fantasy.
