The story of how this amazing book came to be is a story that every family, every father and son, mother and daughter, parent and child can relate to- that moment in life when the older generation wishes to impart its knowledge to the younger generation, yet is at a loss for words to express its legacy.  Here, in a style that is inspiring and stimulating, retired Indiana University professor Dr. Narsi Patel, at the ripe young age of 78, imparted his “words of wisdom” to his son, who at age 50, was searching for a new direction in his own life.

Here, in their own words, is the story of “Pinch Yourself and Touch Someone”:

Dr. Narsi Patel, Author/Father:

 “Pinch Yourself and Touch Someone” was initially written as a few thoughts for my son Dipak, who was leaving after a stay at our home in Indiana, to restart his life in Florida.  At 50 years of age, he had been in and out of numerous businesses, in and out of a marriage, and seemed to be, from a father’s perspective, still unsure of his direction.  Sad at his departure, and unsure of what to say, rather than sit by his side and give him fatherly advice, I jotted down some aphorisms on a piece of paper, enclosed it in an envelope and asked him to read it on reaching his destination. A couple of months passed and I became eager to know his reaction. He said he kept it on his desk and had read it several times, each time getting more meaning out of it. The book contains gleanings from observations, learnings from experience, meditations and inspirational exhortations. The central theme is unearthing the potencies within us and their delivery in service of self and society. “Words of wisdom,” so to speak.                                


Dipak Patel, Publisher/Son:

It’s not easy to receive ‘fatherly advice’ at the age of 50, and so Dad’s thoughts sat in the envelope for a couple of weeks before I sat down to read them. They were not what I expected at all. Over the next few weeks, I would read some of the thoughts every now and again. It amazed me how profoundly they touched upon different aspects of not only my life, but my friends’ lives and the lives of others I knew.  I began to realize that Dad had captured the essence of so many of life’s undercurrents and patterns, that he had imparted great wisdom and brought together, subtly, many profound observations that blended his Eastern upbringing in India with his years of observing our modern dilemmas, as a professor in the American Midwest.  It seemed clear that it was my destiny to share his wisdom and insights with the world.                                 

It is my sincerest hope that you will find in Dad’s words the path to your own inner discovery and fulfillment of your own potential.
