    Turbaned Tornado is the biography of Fauja Singh (born on 1 April 1911), a centenarian British Sikh. He is a marathon runner of Indian descent and a world record holder in his age bracket.

    So Motivational!

    This book really aroused my thoughts on how a common man from a village in Punjab, migrated to England and being the oldest marathon runner at 104! I think that this story is very motivational and also very touching at certain parts of the story! It is a must-have for all bookworms and even for others. To read such a story and then the joy of just having the book as your own, just makes my day

    Very inspirational

    A very good book to read. Story of Fauja Singh inspired me to realize that there is no age bar on learning and doing something. Sometime in our life we start thinking we have no purpose to live but; We always can give a purpose to our life. Thanks
