UNPUTDOWNABLE! A fascinating read for all who dare to dream! – The Times of India

A riveting narrative of an inspiring life. Her tragedies, her professional triumphs & the ability to hold it together, despite the odds, is stuff of movies. – Mumbai Mirror

Flame can inspire many to turn adversity into success – The Hindustan Times

A fascinating page turner that walks you through the compelling journey of a woman who created an iconic company starting off from the veranda of her home, Flame: The inspiring life of my mother, Shahnaz Husain skilfully entwines the personal and professional life of one of the most enigmatic women of our times and will give those who read it the motivation to follow their dreams.

The author has recreated the incredible highs and the inevitable lows of her vivacious mother's life. Shahnaz is seen here as never before in an engaging narrative that captures the courage and conviction of a woman determined to succeed against all odds, often challenging her destiny.

Brilliant Read!

AMAZING BOOK!!! like wow!!
i saw lots of promotions about this book.. thought i will give it a try..! bought it for my sister...she's crazy about Shahnaz Husain... but i ended up keeping this copy and sending her another one!.. It is such a compelling story! Seems like you're sitting in the same room as her while things are happening in her life! Feel emotional at places, proud in some.. like you know her.. Well i know her better now than ever before!!!
it is soo vivid! like pictures playing out in your head.. like a movie!!
10 out of 10 recommendation!!

Flame:The inspirinv life of my mother Shahnaz Husain

Its a very average book.Its ok to read once.Nilofer is completely in awe of her mother b'coz she's been in her shadow all her life.Shahnaz Hussain was born in a rich family and got married in a good family.She did not see any difficulty in her life so really doesent come across as a very inspiring story.She lived her life on her own terms.Nothing so extraordinary.

Flame: The inspiring life of my mother Shahnaz Husain

a good read...
... i liked her passion and persistent nature ...
but i felt the book could have had more probably cause it had more of her family details and less about how when what made her take different decisions in life...
the book sure inspired me to try Ayurveda skin care products :)

Hope it becomes a bestseller

I am not able to comment on the writing style of Nelofar as each have their own tastes in this regard. However, the subject, ie. Shahnaz Hussain shines through the pages as a dynamic and yet down-to-earth personality. Inspiring story!
I later viewed some of her videos on Youtube. Those were equal...
