Narration was impeccable & clear, although monotonous most of times despite off & on efforts to break it. The story line misses the gripping element, may be the writer being from RAW+ IB, a combination, which moulds you to an opaque personality by sheer environment of your organization, but if you can ignore it, it's a book worth reading/listening to understand kashmir, it's journey to present situation and tales of many lost opportunities by it.

कुछ असंबद्ध पर रोचक आत्मकथा। बाबला कोछड़ द्वारा सुरुचि व भावप्रद प्रस्तुति जो पृष्टभूमि के अनुरूप आवाज़ के उतार चढ़ाव और सटीक उच्चारण से 4 सितारा कहानी को 5 सितारे देने को प्रोत्साहित करती है ।

I never ever believed before starting this audible presentation that I will be giving full 5 stars to it, but bravo Tapsee, you were so Frank & true as well as good in your oratory that I thoroughly enjoyed it. And it will be very mean of me if I don't give credit to the nice friendly approach of the interviewer as well as the other members of team, who do research before hand which makes the person interviewed to open up.

Whether it is the need of your stardom image that prevents you to open up? May be. In this narrative you find the replies that stop short of telling the whole truth. I don't know why can't a star actor come out of act and be a normal person, especially when questions are not sneaky.

Diljit speaks in a total unpretentious way. It gives you very soothing feeling that this simple person's success has only touched his heart and not his head. May God keep him this way only throughout his life.

Loved it. A very comprehensive account of Tatas. The narrator did full justice to his part. Listening it was an experience like you were traveling in history, facing all the turbulence of those times, narrow political thoughts side by side with the determination of a humble clan, that shaped our country to a great extant. I remember my service days when my immediate boss a Senior Bank Executive, had a chance to meet Ratan Tata for some banking work. My boss himself , being a very intelligent and down to earth executive, was so overwhelmed by this man & his humility that he used to quote often of that meeting to us whenever, he had interaction with other business men or Government official of little depth but inflated egos. Listening to this book brought the same feeling in me.

The generation that is born & brought up in cities may accept the script & story woven togather. For us, who have close links to real villages it is difficult to digest the concept of mohalla in a village that too a remote one. Touching emotions of characters is also a bit disintegrated and un convincing. I had opted for the book for nostalgic reasons but then over-all missed that feeling. As regards the narrator, he has done full justice to his part and 3rd 🌟 is on account of Mr. Kochhar narration of the 2 star story.

Would not say that I am an ardent admirer of Karan Thapar but still loved it. The book uncovers many unknown aspects & characteristics of the person he talks about, who happened to live, rule and affect lives of us , their contemporary 'Aam Aadmi'. But his own true character he has deliberately kept hidden in shadows, which some how is not apt for biographies. This tends to hint that the writer can't be believed thoroughly and his depictions may be colored.
