Publisher's Summary

Dark Horse is one of the most popular novels of this decade written in Hindi. Such a live and vivid portrayal of the life of candidates preparing for the civil services examination in the Hindi medium were not focused in any other book to date. A candidate preparing for the country's highest honored examination is not only an aspirant but also has a multifaceted lifestyle and struggles in his lap. This is the story of the same struggle.

This novel depicts the uncommon doldrums of getting out of villages/towns and dealing with urban life specifically in the backdrop of Mukherjee Nagar, Delhi. In addition to the immense popularity, this novel has also received the Sahitya Akadami Youth Award of 2015. This is an edited and refined version of this book.

entertaining and realistic

It reminds me the famous Raag Darbaari.... a wit ful writing and a colourful script. Nilotpal narrated it so well that I almost lived my young age again. there are good threads connecting Bihar, Delhi. and emotions. none of the part is boring or imposed. good read.

Nilotpal is just exceptional.

Nilotpal's style of writing is very unique. I loved the book. UPSC journey is described in a very closed manner, as he himself was an aspirant once. Thank you Audible.
