A Short Account of the Story of INS Khukri

It is commendable that Audible decided to bring the story of INS Khukri and Captain Mulla to listeners. While it has been made well, I found the narrative a little short of detail and too disconnected. Neelesh Misra was sounding a little disconnected. I have heard him deliver far better with other stories. Some critical errors should have been avoided- Mulla is pronounced Malla and not with a U sound.
