    1. I remember those days of my come back into reading when I purchased 15 books by Srishti Publication and ended up reading many IITians-turned-authors. Many of them wrote their journey of Engineering in IIT, the best university in India while others wrote love stories, that were unique and quite contemporary. All happened because of Chetan Bhagat's establishment in to the industry. Out of many books, some were really terrific and one of them which I liked a lot was "Anything for you, ma'am". I mad [...]

    2. Romi and Gang by Tushar Raheja“The quintessential Indian story of a quintessential small town Indian teen.”In India where cricket is a many a times much more than just a sport, it becomes a religion. Though this is a cliché so seldom used the truth is not far from it. Romi is a small town Indian boy, in love with cricket and religious in worship of his god ‘Sachin Tendulkar’, living in a room filled with the legends of the game and a ball hanging from the ceiling. His obsession with cri [...]

Their little world starts to tumble down upon them when Kim disappears.Read [...]

    4. 3.5 starsRomi and Gang is clearly not the type of book which I usually read. Being a romance junkie and a sucker for happily ever after endings this book does not fit into the genre which I go for. Imagine my pleasant surprise when I actually enjoyed the book when it clearly lacks both the former mentioned elements I look for in books.Romi and Gang is a book about Romi and his friends as the title suggests. Romi, Sunny, Sukhi and Golu are thirteen year old best friends with a passion for anythin [...]

    5. 3.5Review:Exactly seven months ago, on this same date, I have posted my review of Anything For You, Ma'am by Tushar Raheja.I could recollect enjoying it very much. Though it lacked romance and a appealing story, the humor and the narrative style kept me going.I think that is one reason for publishers of this book to contact me for reviewing.One day, when I was lost somewhere in South India, exploring the amusing beaches and girls of Goa, the Books Reviewwala's mail box got a mail from someone na [...]

    7. My review: wp/p2J8yh-2nLThis book is like a step back in time, back to childhood and those fun school days where we had our own little groups, and we had those big dreams. It is also a step back in another sense, for the presentation reminded me of old story books with large fonts and illustrations, and it's a good thing! This is a fun story of a boy's love for cricket, his antics with his gang and his dreams to be a cricketer, like his idol Tendulkar! Also thrown in are some life mysteries, but [...]

    8. Fun tale of Friendship,Cricket & RelationshipsTushar Raheja's first novel - "Anything for you, Ma'am" was wonderfully funny & his second novel is right up there too! Set in an idyllic small town named Mauji this is a tale about 4 friends - Romi, Sunny, Sukhi & Golu and their cricket-schooling-life challenges and how they tackle themtalks a lot about Parenting & Relationships as well! I loved the ending and it definitely made me misty-eyedminded me of my good-old days when I got s [...]

    10. You can read my full review on my blogOver all the story is a good one but I'm not sure if it’s clear and simple enough for children. Or maybe I didn't see it’s simplicity and clarity because I'm not a kid. Either ways the language used and the topic chosen will definitely work for boys. What’s with the cricket craze in boys/men? There are other sports you know which are just as much fun.If you have a son or are buying a book for a boy, ‘Romi and Gang’ might be worth a shot.

    11. In Star Wars, Yoda had said, “Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not.” When I received Tushar Raheja’s “Romi & Gang” from Pirates, this quote was the first thing that came to my mind. This cute book is tiny, like a pocket book, about the 2/3rd the size of a regular paperback. I decided not to judge the book by its size. This book’s central theme is cricket.Full review here: Romi & Gang | Tushar Raheja | BookGeeks

    12. It’s been some time since I have read a fiction novel with illustrations. Have read the Devdutt Pattanaik ones with illustrations but they are a different league. Romi and Gang is a simple story of 4 friends in school who discover life and learn life lessons through cricket with the help of their ‘cricket coach’ and parents and each other. The story is nothing exceptional or fast paced or thrilling it is a simple story which touches you in some ways. I enjoyed reading it.

    13. A must read touching account, the story is not just in relation to cricket but relating to how the game unites people from chalk and cheese walks of verve, with a bang of indolence grab any reader, with a piquant chronicle of being on the trot after your notes and an aide memoire that there is a slight virtuousness left in every individual.

    14. A book which reminds us of our childhood. We relive our summer vacation and friendship through this book. A wonderfully written book. But the last pages contained too much of cricket commentary. It stole away some of the book's charm. Otherwise it was a five star rating book.
