Neel Preet: Firstly, Congratulations on your book, “YASHO – The Parenting Guide!” Well, can you please share your experience about making your work come into the form of book!
Suman Bansal: Thank you so much for your kind words! The journey of bringing “YASHO – The Parenting Guide” into the form of a book has been truly fulfilling. It all began with a deep passion for helping parents to realise the immense power they possess to make a difference in the lives of their children. As I delved into the process, I was driven by the desire to share practical insights, heartfelt experiences, and timeless wisdom that I’ve gathered over the years.
Every page of the book is a labor of love, carefully crafted to offer guidance, inspiration, and practical strategies to fellow parents. From researching and organizing my thoughts to weaving personal anecdotes, the process was both enlightening and introspective. It was important for me to create a resource that is relatable, approachable, and resonates with the challenges and joys that come with raising children.
Neel Preet: What inspired you to write this book? What was the impetus behind this work of yours?
Suman Bansal: My knowledge in graphology and graphotherapy gave me a unique lens through which to view the complexities of parenting. I understood that the personality that we have as adults, is the result of our upbringing in the early years of our life. I realised that handwriting holds insights into a person’s inner world, and this inner world is a result of the programming done by the parents during the age 0-12 years. This realization became the cornerstone of “YASHO – The Parenting Guide.”
Neel Preet: You’ve given a very interesting title to your book, which is very catchy too so, what made you go for this title for your book?
Suman Bansal: The character in my book draws inspiration from Yashoda, who lovingly shaped Krishna’s character. Krishna is an epitome of a childhood well spent. So, his parents make perfect parenting gurus. My first book deals with the role of the feminine energy in child development and hence only Yasho is in the title. Next book will see the role of the masculine energy. “Yasho” carries forward this wisdom to modern times. The story follows Meera, who navigates parenthood with Yasho’s guidance. The title symbolises a guru who provides insights into nurturing strong roots, and bringing out extraordinary potential in children. It’s a journey of love and growth.
Neel Preet: What was your mind-set, while working on this book? Is it based on any particular experience of yours?
Suman Bansal: My approach was to share the insights I’ve gained as both a teacher and a parent over the years. Teaching classes allows me to reach only a limited audience. The idea of programming a child’s mind is powerful, and I aimed to spread this concept widely. Life is full of experiences. My own childhood days would appear before me, and I could see the impact of those experiences shaping me into who I am today. Parents and caretakers unknowingly contribute a lot to giving direction to our thinking patterns. All parents love their children, but not all possess wisdom. My goal is to inspire parents to be both loving and wise in their parenting journey.
Neel Preet: What are some of the learnings that you gained from writing this book of yours?
Suman Bansal: Writing “YASHO – The Parenting Guru” has been a transformative experience, enriching my outlook on parenting and life. It deepened my appreciation for the universal laws that govern us all. Trees, my silent mentors, taught me resilience and stability, echoing the importance of strong roots for growth. My students’ stories, like the poignant tale of a child who yearned for his mother’s love, reinforced the significance of expressing love and creating a secure environment, shaping my understanding of nurturing young minds. This journey has underscored the power of simplicity, authenticity, and the profound connections that bind us all.
Neel Preet: Next, I would want you to tell us about some of those writers, who had inspired you and whom you follow!
Suman Bansal: Honestly, I don’t specifically follow any particular writer, although I am an avid reader. “Yasho – The Parenting Guru” stems from my inner reflections and experiences. During meditation, I had a vision of a joyful two-year-old child radiating pure happiness. This revelation inspired me to emphasize the preservation of a child’s inherent joy, shaping the book’s essence.
Neel Preet: Is there any message that you would like to convey to your readers? Or any piece of advice, which you would like to give to the readers out there!
Suman Bansal: Absolutely, Neel. To all the readers, I want to emphasize that parenting is a sacred journey, a path of nurturing and guiding young souls. Remember, your child is a unique universe in themselves. Embrace their individuality, and cultivate an atmosphere of love, understanding, and open communication. Be mindful of the impact your actions and words have on their tender hearts. Nurture their self-esteem and encourage their dreams. Let them feel cherished for who they are, not just for what they achieve. As you embark on this beautiful journey, keep in mind that your love and guidance will be the guiding light that shapes their future. Let “YASHO – The Parenting Guru” be your companion, offering insights and inspiration along the way. Happy parenting!
Neel Preet: Are there any other books being worked by you? Please let us know about your future projects.
Suman Bansal: Certainly, Neel. I’m currently working on the sequel to “YASHO – The Parenting Guru,” which will delve into the crucial phase of a child’s journey as they step beyond the familiarity of home into the wider world. This phase demands the development of courage, action, and stamina (CAS). I’ll explore the vital role of masculine energy in this process, shedding light on how fathers can empower children to confidently navigate the world. The next book, titled “Yasho & Nand – The Parenting Gurus,” aims to equip readers with insights and tools to guide their children through the complexities of modern life while embracing their authentic selves. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting endeavor!
Neel Preet: Thank you so much for answering all my questions. All the very best to you for future and your book too!
