Why I picked the book was firstly it was written by my senior, secondly because the title was catchy... what i thought the story to be was very different when i was ordering it on Flipkart, later i completed it in one sitting... the well etched characters and the way that they have emerged, really worth a praise but what caught my attention was the character of Sandeep... actually a person from a corporate world may find such characters around... but do we really have Gods around us? Well i will recommend this book for sure... specially to all those who have big dreams... the ratings 3.5 on  5.
