In this age of Television serials and Avengers movies and comics, this book by Anu Kumar talks about personalities like Satyajit Ray, APJ Abdul kalam....Mother Teresa to Tendulkar in the most interesting way and in simple English....its a wonderful way to make your child know about them. I have seen parents buying GK books....but isn't it better if I know about how the person has grown up to be what he is now...How initial struggles have moulded them...and the book doesn't go into deep details...just enough to arise a curiosity in them to go ahead and read more.
