Amazon service: I pre-ordered this book last week. Perfect delivery, 5/5.

I received this book today (20.02.2017) 11 am and finished by 10:30 pm same day. Yes, I did had a lunch break and dinner. Being a Civil Engineer myself I do envy Sreedharan’s achievements. Here I write about the book only.

Summary:7/10
Could have been better edited. But if you find Indian Railway fascinating and Delhi Metro gorgeous, you ought to read the story of E. Sreedharan. Would be a great gift to someone who needs shots of motivation and determination. The author has shared enough of real life stories that people actually look for in biographies. Specially the stories about how E. Sreedharan dealt with politicians and babus. And there are lot of things to inspire people. Specially those who are honest and find it difficult to survive in the real imperfect world.

For people who like to go in details:

Pros:
India’s Railway Man will easily qualify as semi-Autobiography there are ample accounts in the words of Sreedharan himself. Though this makes reader going back and forth, but still it is interesting to read Metro Man’s entire life – from a humble beginning to an engineer from so-so college to Indian Railway Services, to uncountable transfers to making of a great technocrat to 22 years long Kolkata metro project to – obvious Konkan Railway and Delhi Metro… and it is this 85 year old man behind restructuring of Railways recently by Suresh Prabhu.

Content of the book is heavily researched and authentic. Writing style is fast paced and entertaining. There is something worth learning in every page (as I can see some underlined sentences in each page, yes, I always use a pen when I read ;P).

The book deserves 5 stars, but the kindle edition does not have the photographs posted by the author. This is poor from amazon and the publisher. This should be rectified, and I will buy the paperback. Amazon should contact the publisher and ensure that the kindle edition does not omit photographs!

Reading an autobiography/biography has always been my interest. There has been times when I had woken up all night to finish the book in this genre out of excitement to learn everything that the famous, successful or inspiring personality has done all over his life to maintain the discipline and integrity. This time I picked up the book written by Rajendra B. Aklekar on the life of E. Sreedharan named “India’s Railway Man”. The cover page of the book showing E. Sreedharan folding his fans wearing a blazer with a smiling face yet determined tells about the person being discussed in the book. Sreedharan has many accomplished projects under his name; most popular being Konkan Railway and Delhi Metro. Due to his work in his stint while working for Delhi Metro and completing the project under the specified duration, he also got the name “Metro Man”.

Rajendra B. Aklekar’s passion for railway can be sensed through his style of writing. The way he discusses few projects in depth tells how much author has invested himself in this field. And that’s the reason when he writes about the most famous man in the history of Indian Railway, his enthusiasm and curiosity for the same can be deciphered. Rajendra has not only discussed the man but the development of Indian Railways during the same era in detail.

The book is nicely divided in section making it easy for the reader to understand every important project that the Railway Man has accomplished in his tenure. The few big decisions and challenges that the Man faced during his career is also described which no other person at his place would have questioned or initiated. The way he fought his own battle for gaining the amount of salary as per his designation and work is a wonderful part in the book.
