This Mahotsav is dedicated to the people of India who have been instrumental in bringing India thus far in its evolutionary journey. In this regard, Chandresh Narayanan, an independent cricket author, writer, and broadcaster, explains in this book how the sports fraternity in India faced success, failures, insults, pressure, and glory in these 75 years!

The book is divided into 28 chapters. Each chapter has a unique and important title. The titles are as much intriguing as the contents in every chapter.

The introduction talks about the tryst of Indian blood with sports even before the independence. The language, narration, and events mentioned in the book are enticing, exhilarating, and absolutely stunning.

In short, this book is about the stories of triumph and accounts of sporting achievements of this country. The chapters allow the readers to revisit the yesteryear moments that made memories. Sports are something that unites a country as a nation.

Sports like Hockey, India’s national sport, tennis, billiards, badminton, football, etc. Old yet newer versions of chess, weight-lifting, archery, wrestling, etc., and last but not least, the famous Cricket, have all been uniting the citizens over the years.

Journey Of A Nation: 75 Years Of Indian Sports, by Chandresh Narayanan, is a recommended book for all youngsters and readers who like non-fiction books on sports in general, but not about a particular sports person!
