A few years back, I was waiting for my flight at New Delhi airport when I found Rick Warren’s title The Purpose Driven Life at a bookstore. The very first few pages caught my attention to the questions I’ve always wondered about. “What’s the meaning of life?” is one such question I want to know the answer.
