3.5 out of 5
8 November, 2014
I had never heard about this book until the author- Suresh Taneja contacted me for a review request. As soon as I read the blurb I did some 'googling' and came to a conclusion that I HAVE to read it. Now you may ask Why?- Why Not??? The topic is of universal concern and this book is addressing the most disturbing and alarming topic- the CORRUPTION which has been like a long term contagious sickness and has been incurable for decades and this book (as blurb says) boasts of suggesting its much illusive cure.
My Views: When I took up this book I was excited to read it and thought I wouldn't be sleeping the whole night (that is what I do when I enjoy a book very much) but I was disappointed with the starting. I felt that the first chapter where India was shown as a superpower was too much to believe and there were a few other unrealistic incidents too. Though thoughts of closing the book did cross my mind, thankfully I was persuaded by my friend to continue. The book came to life in the third chapter when the events leading to 'The evening' started taking place and I was completely taken into the book. However, after reading the book, I understood the importance of the initial chapters which were important for introduction, character building and to give insight of present (year 2030) situation in the book.
I loved how G4 chalked out their plan and their team work was awesome. The steps that they took made me think ‘Why can't I do that?’ It all seemed practical and doable; I honestly felt that if we - The Youth of our Country – really take it in our hands then we can make India Corruption free.
Though there were instances where book drags for a while, its uniqueness is in offering simple and creative ideas. It makes us think and makes us ask questions. I really think that every youngster who is not satisfied with the system or wants to bring a change must read this book. After reading this book I am looking forward to read more books on such topics
