Book Review: “A Man Also Gives Birth-Humiliation to Passion to Profession” by Jitendra Gangwani – The Literature Times Magazine Vol 1 Issue 3

Jitendra Gangwani breaks all odds by giving birth to his ideas and establishing commendable values for youth to conquer their insecurities.

Coming from a lower-middle-class family background already sums up everything to money. Imagine living in a family where you have to push yourself twice your limits to meet your needs at the end of the day. Gangwani’s life was no exception. Though, being the youngest in his family he got guidance from his fathers and two brothers. Being an Indian, a mentality strives through our brains that knowing fluent English will solve half of our problems. After tolerating more than 200 years of British colonial rule, we still aren’t ready to accept that English is just a language, not a parameter for judging your intelligence.

‘The difference between a loser and winner is that the loser gives up after the 3rd or 4th try, but the winner never gives up until he becomes successful.’That is some sort of inspirational quote you will read throughout the book. Do you know what separates us from humans to humans? That’s our attitude towards opportunities. Gangwani teaches these lessons through the story of Ram and Shyam- both participated in a marathon race. But, they had different perspectives. I am sure that reading that story by yourself would be more compelling.  

Never giving up is the spirit of Gangwani. How did a boy with minimalistic knowledge of English become the founder of an English-speaking training center? It must be his thirst for achieving something. After getting humiliated, several self-doubts hit us very badly. Some people get drowned in the ocean of self-doubts followed by procrastination and gradually they lose the confidence of facing the world. Jitendra Gangwani wasn’t amongst them. He pushed himself more and more, uplifted his communication skills, and got selected for his first job. 

‘I am certain that any man on this planet can give birth. All men have been giving birth except for fools. If a man conceives his idea or thought, it comes through his beliefs so he gives birth’. Gangwani gave birth to many. Including dedication, desire, determination, decision, ego, and aggressiveness. And, all these things conspired against him to become what he is today. He says that we become what we think for a long time. Initially, Gangwani’s dreams were too middle class, but as the time passed, he opened his arms to grab all the opportunities that came his way.

The book seems like a personal story. So, how can it affect your life? And, most importantly, your family background could also be different from the author’s! In this situation, how would you relate to it? Well, the book offers you the freedom to transform it to your way. You can think of the story according to your situation because dedication, desire, and determination will still be needed to accomplish your goals. If we talk about the narration- it feels so smooth that you can imagine yourself in the protagonist’s shoes. The story takes place in a situation where more than 50% of the Indian population lives- the struggle of middle-class people. What would be more gripping and inspiring?
