That is when he met a Guru. From him learned about Pranayama and Meditation, and learned the teaching of Bhagavad Gita. With his Guru’s help Tapas started taking classes of Pranayama, Meditation, started giving Gita pravachan, and started charging small fee. Tapas had started this as a business to support his livelihood. As the time passes he became popular and more and more people started joining him. From a modest beginning, he went on to having a largest Ashram in India at Puri, Odisha and established many branches of his ashram in many countries around the world. A MLA, an Ayurvedic Doctor and an American were instrumental in his rise. Tapas was overwhelmed by the amount of money he had received from his ‘followers’. He started using this money for benefit of poor people of Odisha. His innovative way of thinking had given an uplift to the life of poor children of Odisha. As nothing, lasts forever… things started going wrong. What happens next to Ashram? What turning points come in Tapas’ life? Will he be able to conquer the adverse situations? To know the reason  go through the “Guruji’s Ashram”.

Strength of the Book:
Discussing “Baba-World”, a very popular theme among Indian, this book stands well on the expectation of readers. Beginning of the book is really amazing which fills readers’ mind curiosity. Narration is quite well with interesting twists in each couple of pages. Dialogue writing is effective which does not let readers skip the pages. Writer has done proper justification with the character. Writer has described each and every point in very detail, which shows his hard work and makes readers completely familiar with only-heard terms such as meditation, Geeta, Aasna, medicinal plants, diseases. Ending of the book is really good. 

Weakness of the Book:
Lack of literature. Sometimes narration goes down. All erotic parts of the story are elaborated too much which leave a negative impact. Dialogue repetition is also a major issue which is considerable as cause of lack of interest of readers. After the completion of one third part, book leaves its breath up to multiple pages because of weak narration in regular manner.

Author Sunil Sinha has done proper justification with the book. Story is quite similar to its title. Cover page could be impressive. Consisting love stories and deep personal life of a man, this book is really touching and compels readers to shed the tears. Those, who really want to have mind peace while being entertained there is none better option than “Guruji’s Ashram”. Worthy to read, this book has enough to touch the heart of readers and let them feel huge respect for Sunil Sinha for creating such work.
