    Coming from a state where cricket is a religion I was introduced to Baichung Bhutia when he became the star player that he is before that I didn’t know him much After that I fell in love with him in Jhalak Dikhla Jaa The finesse with which he danced added to it his cute impish smile made my heart flutter like crazy He was one star I loved a lot throughout the show making me vote for him throughout the show I remember dancing like crazy in joy the night he won After the show ended there was a strange vacuum in my life for long When I saw this book in the list I knew I had to read it for the sheer love I had for it even now Read the whole review here

    Provided some great insights into the early life of our football legend Baichung Bhutia but lacked proper research Content is not up to the mark and not well organised This book covered football environment of Kolkata beautifully including early career of Bhutia fierce rivalry between East Bengal and Mohun Bagan but contains no such info about other parts of country Expected information about his life while playing for JCT and Bury FC

    Ohh the charm charisma and courage all that Bhaichung have is beautifully described in this book Only talent is not sufficient to get into any pro level sport in India Politics is involved at every level Perhaps of all odd Bhaichung becomes the torch bearer for coming generation He has shown the path to football to all Indian After retirement also he is being actively involved in devlopment of sports in India I want to say A Big Thank You to Bhaichung A True Legend

    Good one considering so few non Cricket sports books in India catch attentionBut beyond Baichung I liked it for the tidbits about Calcutta Football League tales about Nayeem Amal 'Diamond' Dutta Subhash Bhowmick Somatai 'Soso' Shaiza Kiron Khongsoi Sathyan et al names I had grown up with by reading about their exploits in 'The Telegraph' in the early and mid '90s leading me to search now for any book on the Calcutta Football If any recommendation anyone has do ping me

    I'm a bit disappointed with this book I expected a lot insights into the life of my favourite Indian footballer Also I felt the content could have been better arranged It was uite clear that the book was written by someone from Kolkata which highlighted a bit of the 1980s mentality which is still prominent there
