HarperCollins India, in association with Landmark, is organising a book launch function on 24th April at 6:30pm, at Landmark in Somajiguda. The book, Don't Sprint The Marathon, is written by V Raghunathan.

Don't Sprint The Marathon aims to be a guide for those helping their children along for success in life, or rethinking their own approach to it. Ambitious parents often push their children to excel in ways that may help them achieve some early successes - but may sap their stamina to endure the more difficult challenges which life may throw at them. The book says that an obsessive rush to get children off to a good start overlooks the fact that in life, as in a marathon, an early lead hardly matters. On the other hand, being too intent on coming first may leave children lacking in many of the life skills that a normal childhood would teach them.

V Raghunathan, author of Games Indians Play, offers an alternative approach - life, he avers, is not a sprint, and it does not matter in the long run if you missed out on the best school, college or job as starters. He says that as long as you give yourself the time to develop your personality and skills, you will get where you want, at your own pace, and perhaps far more happily. To illustrate, based on first-hand interactions, he gives examples of achievers that include N R Narayana Murthy, Dr. Kallam Anji Reddy, Dr. P D K Rao, V Mani, Ashwini Nachappa, Ila Bhatt and G M Rao.
