Bhubaneswar: An invaluable motivational book ‘Enriching Life’ written by eminent motivational speaker and writer Dr Hara Prasanna Das was released on Saturday.
Speaking on various philosophies behind the book, Dr Hara Prasanna Das said, “The most important thing in life is that we must understand ourselves, explore ourselves and experiment ourselves so that we can have the vision.
