FILLIPISMS is a word coined by the author to christen his unique and original maxims that are simple, pithy, full of puns, metaphors, written mostly over the past ten years but drawn from his three decades of experiences and reflection. The author has had two near death experiences of surviving a drowning in the sea and the world's very first human bomb assassination of a world leader. He is inspired by great lives and great thinkers like Socrates, Plato, Confucius, Thiruvalluvar but his chief source of inspiration is the life and teachings of Jesus. This book is his legacy of Inspiration and motivation to the contemporary world.


It is awesome that he holds the record for maximum original quotes authored by a single individual in any language globally and historically.
