The Race of My Life : An Autobiography (Paperback) Price: Rs.150

An orphan, refugee and a man who considered becoming a dacoit found home in the Indian Army where he learned life had a different tale for him to follow. One ruled by speed, that of his legs. The Race of My Life is the story of a man called The Flying Sikh, the autobiography of Milkha Singh.

Summary of the Book

Running is synonymous with the name Milkha Singh in India. After witnessing most of his family being killed in the violence that followed the India-Pakistan Partition, he lived with his sister. A short while in a refugee camp in Purana Quila followed by some time at a resettlement colony in Shadara, Delhi, led to Milkha realizing he was confused by life. Disillusioned by life, he considered becoming a dacoit but applied for the Indian Army under his brother’s persuasion. Four attempts later, he got in. It was during his posting at Secundrabad that he was introduced to athletics, and discovered his life’s true calling. A gold medal at the commonwealth games, and several Olympic games later, Milkha Singh was the stuff of legend. The Race of My Life is the story of an orphan who has been running all his life, and the face of Indian Sports for nearly forty years.

A HEART TOUCHING STORY DIRECT FROM A LIVING LEGEND...MUST READ!!!

Most fantastic autobiography I have read in my entire life. It has been written in very simple language but you will be able to connect to every word written in this book. The part of Milkha Singh we all saw in the film was just a summary of his life. Please read this book if you want a deep insight into his life. A very emotional and very motivating heart touching autobiography. Proud to be born in a country were legend Milkha Singh lives.

I preordered this book and want to thank Flipkart for delivering this book before expectation.

Don't Miss

I got this book through Pre order from the publisher. Fantastic book, written in a simple manner, yet short and to the point. All youngsters must read this, a good inspirational book and helps inculcate discipline and leadership qualities in teenagers

Once you start, you wont put tit down until you finish. Took jut three days to complete, apart from spending 14 hours at office. you just can't put it down. So sad to know the bureaucracy in Indian Sports. What a tough journey this Legend has been through, yet stands apart with all his achievements.

Swimming against tides.....Personified....Hats Off to the FLYING SIKH!

The stirring life story of the ‘Flying Sikh’

The stirring life story of the ‘Flying Sikh’. The book is candid and centers on how he built his career as a world-class sprinter. "Milkha Singh, you don't run, but you fly”. He is India’s most towering athlete till date and spent his life, in his words, running, running and running. I had learnt during my school days about the freedom fighters’ struggle for our country’s independence and also their stories of victories. Never had I comprehended fully the callous manslaughter in India and Pakistan between Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs during the Partition in 1945. It was difficult to read through how Milkha Singh had lost most of his family in one night and his struggling days thereafter until he joined the Army. The later part exemplifies how he had molded himself, worked hard and revived his passion to accomplish his dream to be a world champion. The book is full of life and is a powerhouse of inspiration not only for sports enthusiasts but also for all who are working hard towards their goals.

Book Review - The Race of My Life

The beauty of the autobiographies of self made legends is that these really serve as an inspirational piece of anecdote to win and excel in adverse circumstances despite the inherit limitations. The Race of my Life is no exception; the book does create an inspiring account of one man’s journey from rags to riches overcoming all the odds coming his way through his undeterred determination and never die attitude. Through-out his sprinting carrier, he was wholeheartedly dedicated to racing with virtually no distractions allowed (so much so that he even refused to get carried away with the stardom he enjoyed & always remained committed to his ultimate aim).

Leaving aside the positives and negatives, the book reading always have a special flavor whether or not it has been adapted into movie. I have met and seen the class of reading enthusiasts (including me), who have thoroughly enjoyed the book even after or before watching the movie. The recent series of Harry Potter mania is the live example of the same.

If you have not seen the movie, go for the book first and even if you have seen it, grab this up as this will bring back the inspiring and powerful moments, with a little more insight into his life...filling you with positivity (& not to forget that 'patriotic fervor' I mentioned earlier).

All in all, worth a read for sure.

Rating: 3.5/5

Good book - The Race of My Life : An Autobiography

Am a reader who gets into reading various types of books, like - Autobiographies, Motivational, Leadership, Fiction, Non-Fiction etc. The reason for reading these books is to kill my free time while am tied at home. Well, coming for this book I would say - This book should be read by everyone. People who are reading this review might think what's so great about this, as everyone tells the same. Well, the main reason to read this book is, it will make you think about what are your goals in life, and where exactly are you missing in persuading them. This book speaks about our star (Milka Singh) who has fought his inner demons to reach the pinnacle in his chosen goal i.e., loosing his family, fighting against the jealousy of his fellow team mates, frustration of not able to reach the goal and above all on how to abstain from all distraction that we have around us. Well, I could write a whole page, but this much is enough for a serious reader.
