BOOK REVIEW:- Once again Ashutosh Garg has written a wonderful book, his way of writing is far ahead of other indian authors.He knows how to write a book & catch the attention of readers.
Talking about the book, the story revolves around two Chand and Shujat .It shows the journey of their lives,their struggle.
Chand was 6 feet tall and handsome,a well toned athletic body.
Chand Ram was 21 years old. His father was a poor farmer tilling his small land,rowing crops.Chand had grown up in a small Himalayan village and had enrolled in the army.
Shujaat, on the other hand was four year older & born into wealth.He belong to a Nawaabi Family living in Faridgarh .
Chand and Shujat were best friends, They won the Olympic gold medal.
but Chand was very conscious of the huge difference in their backgrounds. He believed that it must be his karma, that he must have done something wrong in his life.
Shujaat's parents forced him to marry, they found a suitable match for him. Shujaat knew that his hockey playing days were over.
Now Chand and Shujat would never play hockey together again. Shujaat would get sucked into affairs of his state and never return to the game.
They would however remain close friends and stay in regular touch with one another as long they lived.At that time, neither could have realized how their economic,social and religious backgrounds would come in the way of their friendship and that of their future generations.
I would rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.
