Is it possible for everyone be creative? Can creativity be a part of everything we do in our daily lives?

“Yes,” says Ashoo Khosla, author of the book - Off the Corporate bus and into the Creativity Boat.” All of us are capable of being creative and whenever we have used creativity there has been advancement in the world.”

“Yet, is it not strange that one is taught so many subjects at school and college – but the most important subject, the one that will truly help us advance – creativity – is left out?” she asks.

This book answers the question -How does one learn to be more creative? It explores various techniques utilized by the true the masters of creativity – artists and scientists and makes them available in an easy to use format.

The book is in the self-help genre and is written in the form of a gripping story. It is the story of Aditi Singh, a top-notch manager who wants nothing more than to quit. She meets Dr Shiv, an odd little old man, who is a master story-teller. As they spend more time together, Aditi begins to relate to his stories and starts exploring her creative side.

Ashoo Khosla is also a founding member of Shoolini University, where she launched the innovative online learning platform eUniv and is currently in the process of integrating a platform for innovation and creativity for all students. “My larger mission is to reach out to as many people as possible and help them become more creative – in their everyday work and lives.” says Ashoo. To start with, the book will be a part of the core teaching philosophy to ensure all students explore their potential to be creative and innovative. She also hopes to use the book as a tool for corporate trainings in India as well as in UAE, where she is currently based. —TNS
