Description

Czars of the East is a humble tribute to two of the greatest exponents of Indian cricket who hail from the Eastern zone of India. They are icons not just for the youth in this country; rather their popularity extends across various demographic segments simply because of the way they have approached the game, conducted themselves on the field and off it and have been exemplary in making all of us understand the true essence of leadership. They are none other than Sourav Ganguly and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. These two cricketers have challenged conventional norms and thoughts and in the process have invented their own brand of cricket which has been simply majestic.
This book has two major sections – the one dedicated to Sourav Ganguly and the other to Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Each such section further discusses a biographical account of the two players under several heads like The Formative Years, Marriage and After, On Top of the Game, Brand Endorsements, Miscellaneously Yours, Statistically Yours followed by a Picture Gallery dedicated to each of these two czars of Indian cricket.
The author hopes that this humble effort of his will be thoroughly liked by myriad of ‘Dada’ and ‘MSD’ aficionados like him and they will find this book to be pleasantly different in its approach and contextual treatment.

Re: Czars of the East (eBook)

There are times when you get influenced by one author or genre particularly and you start reading books of the author or genre back to back. This is what has happened with me when it is about books written by Dr. Kisholoy Roy on the genre of Cricket. I recently completed the book written by him with the title “Czars of the East” which is around 90 pages and talks about two Indian Cricketers who ended up becoming Captain of Indian Cricket Team and transformed the game the way it was never played before- Sourav Ganguly known as “Dada” and Mahendra Singh Dhoni known as “Mahi”.

It is great to find a book which is a dedicated tribute to these two artists who played Cricket and led the team not only like an extraordinary sports player but as a painter who draws sketches line by line gradually giving it the shape of a complete portrait. The book covers the 1st half discussing about Dada and the 2nd half about Mahi.

The book is divided into different chapters on both the players in a specified format such as The Formative Years (where the author discusses on how they got interested in Cricket and entered the game), Marriage and After (about how they found and met with their better half, got married and little life after that), On Top of the Game (this is where author discusses about their best innings which made them into legends and helped Indian team win difficult matches), Brand Endorsements (how much they earn with their brand collaborations and how popular they are with brands and marketing guys), Miscellaneously Yours (this is where the awards and accolades they have won are discussed along with a summary on their Cricketing life), Statistically Yours (the whole statistics are mentioned in the tabular format the way it is in all the biographies/autobiographies of sportsmen) followed by a Picture Gallery dedicated to each of these two czars of Indian cricket.

I liked how author has been able to collate their whole life together in the book considering that he is not a Sports journalist or Manager of these Superstar players. The research and observation that he must have carried out for this book tells the hard efforts of the author behind this compilation. The language used in making their life understandable to us along with their leadership, management and innovative qualities is very easy to understand and what helps you to complete this book in a single sitting of around 1.5-2 hours. The similarities between both the players are also mentioned in the initial chapter of the book which is very interesting to read. This is not a critical account on these players hence if you are fan of these two players, you shall enjoy the chapters more as author has literally treated them like Czars in the book as mentioned in the title.

Talking about the drawbacks of the book, I would say author should have also included the controversies these players were involved in and his take on them if he felt they were right or wrong. Similarly, I personally felt that very little summarization has been given on their Cricketing life which a Cricket lover for me doesn’t get satisfied with- we like reading detailed account on such personalities, insights etc. Also, there’s a small suggestion I would say and not a drawback- author could have also added quotes said by these players in their match-closing ceremonies as Captain gets to speak in every match and sometimes they end up giving very wonderful insights on leadership, motivation, management etc. and the testimonials spoken by other contemporary players on these stars which gives more prominence to these personalities as this book can also be picked by a reader who is not of this century at all hence he/she would seek validation how big/average/small these players were 50-100 years back.

Overall, this is a very feel-good book on these two loved stars of India- Sourav Ganguly and MS Dhoni and if you have been following Cricket from last 10-20 years, you will enjoy reading about these modern-day Cricket transformers. I give this book 3.75* out of 5.

Well written. Well Researched.

Presenting the biographies of two iconic cricketers to me seems a challenge. But then that has been well done by the author. Well written and well researched. An engaging content of around 80 odd pages with lots of interesting facts and figures and trivia makes this book the right reading or gifting option for any cricket lover.

Nice and recommended Read.

I have read many a biographies on cricketers that are huge in terms of pages and are little too detailed. What this book offers is compact presentation of facts and figures and lovely nomenclature of chapters that dissects the lives of the two cricketers viz. Sourav and MSD neatly and informatively. A must read for any cricket loving soul.
