Siddhartha Email More By Junaid Bahadur Khan, Islamabad, Pakistan December 8, 2008 I recently read Hermann Hesse’s brief novel Siddhartha. It is a great read. The story revolves around a character seeking fulfillment and enrichment. “Know thyself” is the novel’s focus. I hope other readers will enjoy this gripping book.
