    1. This was one of the most simple and elegant books I have read in a long time.A very simple prose but highly effective and gripping. No use of complex word and grammar. Simplicity of this book touched my heart.Sudha Murty is always been my favourite author, however I have read her books in Gujarati translation and have always been close to my heart.The title of this book can be misleading, the fact is, The day I stopped drinking milk is one of the story in this book along with some others. Actual [...]


    2. i really liked this book. this book is not a literary treat with complicated usage of words. the language is very simple. it is just a collection of sudha murty's experiences over the years working for the infosys foundation and also from her personal life. it is told in a very simple manner. some of the lessons are worth learning and some are worth pondering about.


    3. Sudha Murthy is a social worker and a writer. I read her book, ‘The day I stopped drinking milk’. This book is about her life experiences. There is a proverb, ‘A wise man learns from the mistakes of others, the fool has to learn from his own’. What I learned from this book is that the world has become a place of personal gain and selfishness. Sudha Murthy recounts two of her experiences in which she helped two youngsters complete their education by providing monetary aid. After these two [...]


    4. The Day I Stopped Drinking Milk by Sudha Murthy is a compilation of instances from her own life. She shares her experiences at different times and with different people in the form of short stories which are enlightening as well as an eye opener. One of the few authors who have the skill to writesimply yet have an impact on their readers, Sudha Murthy has always fascinated me with her observations and her thoughts on matters most diverse. Here also she talks of different situations and gives us [...]


    5. When I bought this book, I didn't think I would enjoy it so much! Mrs. Murthy says it like it is. No frills, no fancy words. Real stories are something else altogether; in a way they are better than fiction. I enjoyed every story, as simple as it was. Life's important lessons as written by Mrs. Murthy. Her penmanship conveys her own simple personality.


    6. The Day I Stopped Drinking Milk : Life stories from here and there is a recollection of 23 life experiences by Sudha Murty. She has narrated them is a simple flowing language and as with every story Mrs Murthy writes, they reach the core of the heart. The characters are ordinary people she has met in office, at home, in her village, during a journey and so on. Most of us would also have met such people whom we would have forgotten but with all credit to her, she has narrated the incidents in fir [...]


    7. Absolutely LOVED this book. Sudha Murthy's work is admirable because she's so disarmingly honest. Most social workers (especially people who donate on such a large scale) are guilty of being extremely proud of their work and their contribution, so much so that they feel the world revolves around their own humanitarian tendencies to the exclusion of all else. But here is someone who is so qualified, doing such good work and doing it very matter-of-factly with a quiet kind of confidence and abilit [...]


    8. Sudha Murty is one of the few authors whose writing style, purity of thoughts and simplicity make you fall in love with the stories, the characters and reading itself! I have a read a few of her works before, books of short stories, "Gently Falls The Bakula"(remaining one of my favorite books till date and also an apt representation of Feminism for me) and reading her again just makes me wonder and beat myself for not having read more of her. As I complete these fantastic set of stories, I make [...]



    9. Sudha Murty is a lady of wisdom. The book is simple but the life lessons are torchbearer. Keeps you grounded. It’s about the human values and the lessons you learn through different experiences and people you meet along the way. I like the way she handles decision making; uninfluenced by anyone’s opinion, belief and mindset. Yet her deeds are so justified. I love an anecdote she writes in one of the stories in the book which clearly explains her unorthodox and logical thinking.“My father u [...]


    10. Review @ PriyankaReads =================================Rating: 5 out of 5 starsGenre: NonfictionAge Recommended: 11 and upOne woman. Twenty-three people. Twenty-three stories."The Day I Stopped Drinking Milk" is a book full of heartwarming experiences of the author, Sudha Murty, written as she walks the roads of rural and urban India and aspires to become the voice that many never had. She confronts the issues of child marriage and gender inequality in the workplace through eloquently written t [...]


    11. Two star rating does't mean that I hated the book and one should not read it No book is bad when you look at it like I do. The stars mean - It's OK. A light and easy read for a lazy afternoon. Won't take up much of your precious time. Hence, read it once. Little kids to old men will enjoy these small and random stories equally. The writer shares some of her rich life-experiences here in a very simple language. Cheers to her for that.


    12. whatapointThis is the first book of Mrs. Murthy I have read. I dint expect it to be like a story book written for the kindergarten. It has got easy language, no complicated vocabulary. I am not going to read any other book of hers ever again. But for my kids I would recommend it certainly.I still don't understand why she stopped drinking milk.To know more--- whatapoint


    13. The best part about Sudha Murthy books are that they are written in simple words. It feels like the author is conversing with you. The emotions are very apparent and you can empathize with the author. 'The Day I Stopped Drinking Milk' does just that. It is a good tea-time book. The author's experiences are well depicted and of course, it is a good endorsement for Infosys Foundation.


    14. Its the same thing that one gets when reading Sudha Murty everytime. Not the best from her non fiction, but the real experiences makes us think.For Sudhamurty fans a must read , for others go for her other works like - Wise or otherwise , Old man and his god etc.




    15. I believe this book was ghost written, but nevertheless it had some good lessons. The writing was very effective in a quiet way.




    16. Simple and Insightful. This is the first Sudha Murty book I have read. Her simple and easy style of writing combined with the everydayness of the stories makes one feel very included. The stories portraying various facets of human nature are ones that some of us may have encountered in our journeys as well. In a way they reminded me of the Chicken Soup series that I'd read during my college days.Each story brings with it a said/ unsaid story. My personal favorites were the ones on the Sharaddha [...]


    17. She is quite blunt author i have come across.Her stories make sense with her subtle usage of plot.Simple English makes say for people to read


    18. I really enjoyed reading this book. The book comprises of incidents happened in the life of Sudha Murthy. She narrates the life of people she had come across as well as the lessons life taught her. She adopted a simple, short and precise narrative style. Directly to the matter was what I felt when I read those life stories.Most of the stories were inspirational as well as advices. The stories could even narrate to a kid as moral stories. The ethics we should uphold in our life, the compassion th [...]


    19. Well, the book felt as if some elder aunt or granny is telling you her experiences with different sorts of people over her lifetime, and how they affected her or she affected them. It's like few of those anecdotes were quite touching, such as the first story Bombay to Bangalore, or later another one called Shraddha. Mrs. Murthy has tried to show the different facets of human personality, that we get to meet every single day of our lives, and how they leave a lasting impression on our minds, and [...]


    20. Although this book tries to inspire good in people, but somehow this book did not connect with me. I found the author's view highly biased and some of the stories could have been taken in a completely different way if the prospective is changed. For eg, she tells an instance in which she refused to give medicines to a lady who according to her wore diamond ear rings and came in a car. For all she could know, those ear rings could have been fake and the car may not necessarily belonged to the lad [...]


    21. It's a very interesting set of stories drawn from the life of Sudha Murthy, one of the best of Indian authors we have today. I liked the story of one of the female characters in the stories, an Indian lady Hirakani who escapes during an Indian ruler's time to get milk to some of the people staying within a fort. The other interesting story is about an Indian gentleman Raj Reddy, who wins the Alan Turing Prize for Computer Science and is not very excited about it. He says people remember these pr [...]


    22. Collection of short stories and anecdotes from Ms. Murty's life makes up this book. Some stories are interesting but most of them seem like recall of some sweet-bitter experiences as Chairman,Infosys Foundation. She expresses herself as ever helping and quite accessible to everyone but that seems to be not true. However, this is a personal bias I developed by reading so many stories with herself into center but this goes out to be a good read when you want a break from some big books of 400-500 [...]


    23. The book is a collection of various short stories inspired from the life of people who have come and gone from the author's life. Its rather an average book with few good stories. the language is far too simple for the avid readers and novel worms.Stories, though constructed in the native land of India, might fail to impress you. Some stories may feel like straight from the author's personal diary where she is trying real hard to impress readers and not to impose her own personal feelings.The ti [...]


    24. Very disappointed. I loved Sudha's How I taught my grandma book. But this book is leg puller. As usual her language is simple and good.This book contains Sudha's life experiences. I felt her views to be partial in most of her stories and pictured herself to be the good person. Few instance and stories brought the idea of throwing the book away. The pages were all filled mostly with her philanthropic adventures and her lessons learnt. I was like very upset from some of her learnings. If you ask m [...]


    25. I found this book to be pretty much below expectations. I picked up the book from the library and thought that this would be a really good read, with stories of simple, humble, unknown Indians. While some of the stories are good indeed, the book soon palled on me. Perhaps I am being harsh, but there seemed, at times, to be something of the sanctimonious in some of the stories. Too much simple goodness, perhaps, and the author's role in mentoring this. No one can be perfect, but this is what came [...]
