In this candid autobiographical work, industrialist, philanthropist and writer Kochouseph Chittilappilly reflects on the events and experiences that touched him and became the driving force of his thoughts, actions and philosophy of life. A Journey towards Hope is organized into two parts. The first part begins with the author's train journey to Thiruvananthapuram in search of a job after college. The chapters that follow paint vivid memories of starting out on his own venture and the experiences and lessons from the journey of life as a businessman and as a human being to becoming the Kochouseph Chittilappilly as society knows and recognizes him today. The second part is a nostalgic recollection of childhood memories, which hold a special place in the author's heart. Though humble and ordinary, these reminiscences will take readers back to their own roots and help find new meaning in life moments neglected as insignificant. The author hopes that his life experiences become a source of light to those seeking to be happy and successful in life.
