When I picked up "Fire Burns Blue", I had a lot of expectations and it lived up to all of it and how! Got to know a lot of heartening stories and indeed developed a respect for many people who joined the dots of the Indian Cricketing landscape to elevate women's cricket to public consciousness, but unfortunately, are ignored by us. Now, I can proudly say, I know it a bit more about the sport than many who haven't read this book. This, for me, is the Women's Cricket equivalent of Gideon Haigh's Sphere of Influence, a book of rich details regarding the impact of commerce and politics in Men's cricket. Haigh was successful in depicting all the finer nuances and stories of men's cricket's evolution to a money-making machine, and here, Sidhanta and Karunya are successful in depicting the stories of hard work of many unsung heroes of Indian cricket and how the country has suddenly risen to its women's cricketers. Thank you to both of you for this gem.
For everyone, who loves the game of cricket, this is a must-read. Pick it up.
