About the Book

By any measure, we are at an inflection point in human history. As the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has shown, it is not only the planet that is at risk but our very destiny. We must take an unblinking look at who we are compared with who we want to be or ought to be. That entails going within to discover what is happening deep inside our consciousness. This book suggests that the root of our troubles is our ignorance that there is a perennial war within each of us between good and evil. Like in any war, both sides need supplies. But in this internal war, they must come from outside, in the shape of our daily doings and choices. As you read, you’ll get a roadmap on how to make better decisions and contain the evil within. Get answers to questions such as: • Why must we fix the inside before fixing the outside? • How can we prevent evil from overwhelming our consciousness? • How can the good inside of us overwhelm the bad outside? There is no nobler calling for any of us at this pivotal point than to volunteer to join others committed to bettering themselves so we can rescue mankind from self-annihilation.

About the Author

Bhimeswara Challa is a native of India and a ‘double-retiree’, one from the elite Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and the other from the United Nations. During a career stretched over forty years, he shouldered multiple responsibilities, from the grassroots to the global, which gave him at once an insider’s depth and an outsider’s objectivity. Alongside, he has been a part-time but passionate writer and has published two novels, Kshanayulu (The Pardonables) and Aprasyulu (The Ostracized) in his mother tongue (Telugu) and several articles in newspapers and journals in India, UK and USA. His two previous scholarly non-fiction books were the critically acclaimed Man’s Fate and God’s Choice—An Agenda for Human Transformation (2011), and The War Within between Good and Evil: Reconstructing Morality, Money and Mortality (2020). This book is an abridged and revised version of the latter nonfiction book (in a sense and in spirit, its sequel), written specially for the international audience traumatized by the corona pandemic.
