Samaaj: Jismein Main Rehta Hoon by Narendra Kohli
As much as Narendra Kohli is known for the narrative and flow of his writings, he is also for the clarity of his thoughts. He often hears that people are afraid to talk to him.

Because they do not know,
whether they will survive the next moment or not.’
