A story set in the 90s of Bangalore about a bunch of boys growing up on the sport & religion called 'Cricket'. Karna’s love and passion for Divya is as much as for the game. Karna & his friends, worshipers of the game, go through a pious and adventurous journey of conflict.They are guided by the principles of righteousness, sportsmanship, ethics and fair play by Mr. Iyer & most importantly the confidence instilled by their mentor Nawab Khan. They have to gain self belief, which leads them to introspect. They recognize the true sense of Arthur Schopenhauer’s quote ‘Honor has not to be won; it must only not be lost.’ They ultimately win many hearts, but will Karna win the only heart he longs for?
In a country where this game unites all where true religion divides, what happens when the cult of cricket collides with the real systems of faith? Will there be a further rift?

One of the very few good books in the genre of sports fiction among Indian writing. Cricket fans & players will enjoy the read. Also a good read for book lovers who like to explore different genres. It has drama, love, friendship & cricket all in one, just as displayed on the back of the cover. The author has done good research to relate cricket, mythology, passion & religion; stitch a story together that goes down to the wire. The story has enough twists to keep you hooked until the end. A wonderful read that I recommend to today's generation.
