Product description

Review

Aravind Adiga: Research makes it sound like hard work. It was lots of fun. Meeting young batsmen, coaches, talent scouts, and travelling up and down Mumbai to see school cricket matches being played in different venues. Standing in the rain to watch matches being played in the Kanga League, Mumbai s famous monsoon league --By A Customer on 18 august 2016

Aravind Adiga: Mohan Kumar is a real man, or rather, a composite of many real cricketing fathers. Just visit any maidan where poor boys are playing cricket and you will find a Mohan Kumar, on the sidelines, shouting at his son or sons. For thousands of poor men like Mohan Kumar today, the obsession is to escape poverty by turning their sons into the next Sachin Tendulkars. They control every aspect of their sons lives, from nutrition to training to studies, even down to hair-style. Though the original desire, to escape poverty through cricket, is admirable, over time these fathers develop an unnatural urge to control their sons bodies and minds. --By A Customer on 20 august 2016
