Because Words Matter by Kailash Satyarthi | Book Review


Summary:

This book offers the guidance and teachings of Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi. He has waged a peaceful struggle to stop children from being exploited as labour instead of being sent to school. The power of simplicity and humility in his messages has transformed the lives of millions of children. What he achieved through a single-minded devotion to the cause is testimony of how people can make a difference through seemingly small actions.
What Satyarthi has been saying for the last thirty-six years are not merely words confined to the cause of children; in fact they represent the voice of freedom, anger, compassion and humanity. Words have the power to provoke, inspire and transform. Perhaps these can inspire the readers to work towards a more meaningful life…because words matter.
