With much pomp and show, the book was released and it was indeed a glorious event.
"The book is the first sports based drama , considering the Indian literary arena, and what a splendid book. I LOVED it." Actor Tom Alter said talking about the book.
Talking about the author, Asfiya Rehman, she debuts as an author with this book into the literary world, though she has time and again proved her mettle in the literary arena by way of blogging and writing short stories.

Asfiya Rahman; a management graduate; is a teacher by occupation and a writer by inclination. She teaches French and English and often uses her students’ idiosyncrasies in the stories she writes in her free time. She has published stories and articles with various different publications. Her hobbies include reading and travelling. She looks forward to the day when she can earn enough from writing to concentrate on pursuing her hobbies. (Follow her on twitter @doonwriter.)
This is one of a kind project where the publishing house has forayed into the Co-author Project model. This book has been conceptualized by Mr Chetan Soni, who contributed towards the story and the plot, which is beautifully penned by Asfiya Rehman.
Will the book be a national bestseller? Will it allure the readers with its spunk and novel style?
Only time will tell.
