A Review by Author Kiran Manral: "A compilation of anecdotes and vignettes from growing up in the 1970s, Kumar Kinshuk weaves together a nostalgic trip that must be savoured piece by piece. A harkening to a gentler time when television and the internet had not yet become the mainstay to fend off boredom, 70s children would definitely identify and enjoy these charming reminiscences, universal as they are to that day and age."


A Review by Author Nupur Luthra: "Author Kinshuk has a different yet unique way of narrating his story. The story does remind you of your own childhood. A must read to reminisce your past, and get entertained!"
