Having grown up in a city that is not Mumbai, I can easily relate to the description the author gives for Mumbai. A city that never sleeps for sure and a city where peoples” dreams come true. The city that gave Rasiq the idea to accomplish his true potential.

Opening Sentence: ‘Due, why are we running?’ the hare asked the tortoise at the start line.
A book that is filled with exciting twists and turns and also has the perfect blend of adventure to keep the reader hooked until the end.
It felt nothing less than watching a high-end drama.
All the characters in the book, Rasiq, Halka, Natasha, Nick, and Md Vyom have been described well by the author. Each characters’ journey is an experience in itself. It is not a new experience for a reader. The challenges, the wit, the strength that all characters execute is praiseworthy.
As a reader, we have all been through the same situations in some way or the other.
We have all worked hard in our careers, we have sacrificed some dreams. We have had people back us and some people trying to pull us down.
The ease with which the Author tells you to follow your dreams by fighting all odds is what interests the reader to read further.
There are just a few instances where the characters risk their lives to save the lives of others is a little dramatic description which may be difficult to relate to by some people. This is a feedback I have for the Author.
The words come so easily to the writer to make reading simple and enjoyable to the reader.
For someone who has just written their second book, the father-son duo does perfect justice to their writing collaboration.
At no point will you be able to judge who has written what. It’s a pleasure to read such a well-articulated story. Overall, a happy read and a book, that as a book lover, I would recommend to all.
