      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location

    "Success by design is infinitely better than a win by chance.' Vasu Bhatt is fourteen years old when a mysterious old man spots him at a chess tournament and offers to coach him?on two simple but strange conditions: he would not accompany his student to tournaments, and there would be no digging into his past. Initially resentful, Vasu begins to gradually understand his master�s mettle. Over eight years, master and student come to love and respect each other, but the two conditions remain unbroken�until Vasu confronts and provokes the old man. Meanwhile, their hard work and strategy pay off: Vasu qualifies for the World Chess Championship. But can he make it all the way without his master by his side? Inspiring, moving and mercurial, The Last Gambit is a coming-of-age tale in a uniquely Indian context.",

    One of the most inspiring books out there!

    Gripping from the first word till the very last, it is an absolute unputdownable book.

    Though based on Chess, it is a book for anyone who is looking for an inspiring, thrilling and engrossing read with a meaning. Meaning because it is set up in the most real,
    believable of backgrounds. It is a fiction but feels like a story close to home.

    The author offers a perfect balance between the technical aspect of the game and the lows and highs in the protaganist, Vasu's life. Such vivid portrayal ...

    Brilliantly Real Fiction

    The last Gambit - Work of Fiction so adeptly woven with strands of wisdom for the challenges which a regular teenager face in his/her life. This is the first time i am reading a work of fiction by a monk, you don't expect someone going in a robe to write work of fiction. Then the Author is not just any monk which shows from the other works he has written. Other than how to pursue your dreams relentlessly the author has emphasized on how much the parents sacrifice for their children to make th...

    Mind-blowing purchase

    Its a fiction..but i felt that author has written his own teenage experiences here...i could connect with the protagonist...
    The story is gud..touching and my emotions emerged on many places...i remembered by own teenage and my own old guruji at that time...i could relate with the story...
    The only thing that i could not connect was the chess terminology and technical aspects of this game...overall i love to read it again some day when i feel like...its a touching and inspiring story..

    it will take you on a ride of Life - yes Life !

    The moment I started reading the book, just about all the characters came alive. I am so sure that like me there are many others who can literally see 'who is playing who' in this story.

    What can I say either about Vasu or his Master, at times the boundaries of distinction disappeared for me - glimpses of Master in Vasu and Vasu in his Master. Perhaps that is what a True Master means, perhaps that what the Master Author here indicates - the disciple needs to work upon himself/herself to the ...

    Say "check mate" to all your limitation

    The story has the strength to change one's perspective towards life. I think the book contains all the emotions we can have and most importantly, it teaches how to regulate those emotions when life plays strange games with us and surprises us. It teaches how to "check mate" all the limitations dwelling within ourselves and discover our own truth. One of the best novels I have ever read. Grateful to our beloved Om Swamiji. Looking forward for more from Him.
