🌟A light hearted view at the journey of an IAS aspirant through his love life and passion. Once i started, kept the book down only after i finished reading it. His passion for cricket is evident. A look into the lives of our IAS officers as aspirants is enlightening and will be encouraging to the youth. A sequel would be great.

The most interesting thing about the story was the Cricket analogies. Clearly, the author loves Cricket and Ms Dhoni. The comparisons brings out a lighter mood to the serious environment in the story.
