    Unveiling a personality!

    If you are a fan of people who have done extraordinary things with their lives, this book is for you! To read of a woman who has accomplished so much through sheer grit and determination is a true motivator for oneself! Shahnazs' life reads like the stuff of movies - very vivid, very crisp, very emotionally involved. For an avid reader, this book compares to Princess and Daughters of Arabia by Jean Sasson and the like. Don't look for shortcuts to business in this book, enjoy it purely for th...

    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 :)

The book takes you through Shahnaz Hussain's life and by the time you are done you feel exhilarated! Relationships are etched out so beautifully. am so happy that i bought this book!

    But flipkart needs to take note of the fact that some pages are repeated and one page from the foreword is missing:(...

    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 equally inspiring.
