harsha bhogle has given a inside picture of azhar the man, the character of azharuddin on and off the field, his affection towards the game, fellow players, and ability to succeed in very difficult circumstances.
His relationship with the mumbai cricketers have been very much highlighted throughout like shastri supporting him initially and having difference of opinion with him in the later stages, vengsarkar who was unhappy with azhar on the tour of west indies as azhar failed miserably (remember vengsarkar also failed in the series), gavaskar's mixed reaction on the captaincy issue when azhar was made the captain for the 1992 world cup and the rapport what he shared with sachin tendulkar throughout his career (which should have got ended with the match fixing saga as sachin accused azhar on his credibility,quite strange and shocking!?)
the last line of the book is still in my memory like harsha finishing like " kisi rah pe kisi mod par tum chal nehidana mera hamsafar" which means that azhar doesn't want to miss friends at any point of his time in life which he recollects from a very famous hindi song, bhogle signed off the book saying that azhar is not alone!
But, now the whole world has left azharuddin alone without knowing the actual truth, hope the man of destiny will bounce back with the grace of god!!
