Bhagavad Gita is perhaps the most sought after Hindu religious text and its popularity transcends border and age barriers.


Over the ages, writers and scholars have attempted to expound its messages through commentaries in different languages and styles. The process of demystifying continues.


Now, a former bureaucrat and writer, Vijay Singal, has launched his tome on ‘Bhagavad Gita – Saying It The Simple Way’ in an easy narrative style.


The book has been presented in a contemporary style, like a self-help text containing a string of practical wisdom. “It provides simultaneous translation of each ‘shloka’ to aid better understanding by the reader,” he said in Lucknow.


The book has been enriched with thematic photographs, mostly based on nature to make it a truly collector’s item for reference and seeking life guidance.


The book was launched at New Delhi by Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar. Singal has already earned name for himself in the fields of spirituality, philosophy, psychology, religion and culture.


His first book ‘Behind Psychology – Searching for the Roots’ was published in 2002. Singal has also authored, in association with Atul Bhardwaj, two coffee table books titled ‘Ganga – A Divinity In Flow’ and ‘Sparkling Punjab’. Singal’s previous book on Hinduism was released by top UK based industrialist Lord Swaraj Paul in the House of Commons, London, in 2013.


Born in Sangrur, Punjab in 1951, Singal joined Indian Revenue Service (IRS) in 1976 and retired as Chief Commissioner of Income Tax from Mumbai in 2010.
