Cocktail is a compilation of four inspiring stories where the protagonists are dynamic, courageous, and freethinkers. The purpose of this book is to make the readers travel through a journey of self-realization. The main characters of these stories pursue unconventional career goals. Their conviction, individuality, and vision have made them legendary in their own rights. Their predicaments have been depicted through their stories – discomfort in their work lives, turmoil in their personal relationships, struggles of building educational and vocational setups in their villages. This book aspires to motivate us to think beyond “peer pressure” and live a life of our own choices. How these characters guide their lives through obstacles and societal stigmas will be an endorsement of their never say die attitude.Cocktail occupies a special place in my heart. I hope this book helps you find your inner self.
