    Classy product

    Awesome book :: Inspiring story
    Moral ::
    If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

    Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

    Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass....

    Fair

    I read the whole book the same day when i got it.Although I was expecting some more twists in the end but moreover it's a very good book for those who aspire to become a civil servant.
    It's also about how a civil aspirant manages his studies along with love life.

    Best in the market!

    One of the best books.
    There was some moments while reading this book. Some happy moments , some emotional , some funny.
    The story about an IAS exam journey's through a character named "Vishy" and his childhood classmate friend who later became is girlfriend and also his wife.
    Some tips by Vishy to Ashok ( his fellow classmate and best friend ) about how an IAS prelims and mains are like Test match and One day match.
