Flow of the story is not equally spread over the book. After every couple of chapters narration goes down and makes readers to skip the pages. Narration is not that much effective in the first part. Too much Hindi dialogues are written which really leave negative impact.

This book is best way to teach how to keep your loyalty with you in the adversity of life. Book really touches the heart of common man living in the society of greedy professionalism.
