If you love cricket, you would definitely like to have this book in your shelf
29 March, 2013
The title of this book "Rahul Dravid: Timeless Steel" hits your mind as the flavor of your favorite food-dish hits you on your tongue.
When I picked this book up, the first thing that struck me was that this book is not a 250 pager on Rahul Dravid, that takes a dive into his childhood and leads us to his practice days in domestic cricket and then into international cricket. Rather it is a collection of small articles about Rahul Dravid. This makes it a very good read even for someone who loves Rahul Dravid, the cricketer, but he/she is not into reading books and avoids reading long novel type books. He/She can just pick this book up and read one article piece at a time.
Each article tells the same and yet a new story about the great man. Every article almost always talks about the discipline and grit, but every article talks about it in a different way, in a different situation.
My favorites came out to be 2 pieces - the one from his wife and the other from lessor celebrated cricketer, Sanjay Bangar.
A definite 5 star. Both the cricketer and the book.
