The Author: Gp Capt Y Srinivas (Veteran) is a simple yet very popular name among those who struggled, failed but bounced back with confidence, and extra energy to be successful in life. Just like any lower middle-class child, he too had dreams, which were big but the path to achieving them was obscure. He has always set clear goals and was confident of achieving them through the yardstick of dedication, sincerity, and hard work. He served the country by working in IAF (Indian Air Force) for twenty-three years and took voluntary retirement at the age of forty-eight with the sole intention of proving his credibility in the civil world.
Ageing is a phenomenon that can’t be ignored or forgotten. Even if one may deny it, time does not stop, nor does the process of ageing. With age, the process of acquiring maturity continues, which in turn shapes a person’s attitude towards life and the events that are part and parcel of it. But as it is often said, ageing may be a natural process, feeling and staying young can still be for a prolonged period of time. A person who is young at heart would not feel the pangs of growing old. This thought is shared by the author Y Srinivas in his book on the same subject, “Be Thirty at Sixty: A book on Anti Aging.” Throughout the book, the author talks about the process of aging and how it changes people’s lives. But the right kind of attitude would solve their problems, and they would always feel young.
“Be Thirty at Sixty” is a product of the author’s research, his life experiences, and how they have found expression through words on the pages of the book. His experiences culminate, and hence, the author shares significant secrets and details that would transform the lives and the thinking of many readers. To begin with, Srinivas develops the base of human personality development right from their infancy which ultimately develops their personality in different ways, and thus they become different personality types. The content spread over 8 chapters talks about various aspects of perceptions and behaviours shaping as per age and defining people’s attitudes.
At the same time, “Be Thirty at Sixty” becomes more interesting due to the presence of different exercises to involve and engage the readers. They become involved with the book, and thus, the book does not remain a mere product of words scribbled on paper. The book makes the readers active participants and opens their eyes when it raises different questions, which make the readers ponder over the ideas that the author is talking about. These questions are born from practical thoughts and hold relevance in the lives of the majority of the readers. In one of the bonus exercises, the author raises different questions for readers based on their age groups. This increases the relevance and widens the appeal of the book to people, not just in the later stages of their life.
