    Here s a YA offering revolving around a subject that obsesses young and old alike in our country the game of cricket The story of an underdog cricket team who call themselves the Star Eleven, we cannot help but get involved in the fortunes of Aakash and his friends as they toil and finagle their way to their passionately longed for objective to become the cricket champs of Devgarh But while the conflict on the playing field is a powerful page turner, the book kept me engaged because it provide Here s a YA offering revolving around a subject that obsesses young and old alike in our country the game of cricket The story of an underdog cricket team who call themselves the Star Eleven, we cannot help but get involved in the fortunes of Aakash and his friends as they toil and finagle their way to their passionately longed for objective to become the cricket champs of Devgarh But while the conflict on the playing field is a powerful page turner, the book kept me engaged because it provides a rare glimpse of genuine adolescent experience teenage angst as it is lived in thousands of small towns across the country Places like Devgarh, far from the glitz of the metropolitan cities, where boys from lower middle class families struggle to grasp seemingly elusive goals while attempt to balance their own dreams with the aspirations their parents have loaded them with As Ruskin Bond has commented on the back cover Champs of Devgarh does take you back to Swami and Friends, uncannily so It has the same innate honesty and reflects the turmoil of growing up in a small town in the same light hearted manner There is the same naivet , the same vulnerability and the same impulsive rebellion against authority with disregard of the consequences in the main protagonist Aakash, who follows the same pattern of getting into one scrape after another.The Star Eleven s commitment to their cause keeps the pace rolling even as their capers make you chuckle Like many muddled youngsters, they are willing to lie, cheat and steal to obtain their objective, but each experience seems to dissolve a little of the mist of confusion and inexperience teenagers tend to flounder in And it is exactly this rawness that evokes the reader s empathy, keeps your emotions invested in the Star Eleven s fate Because let s face it many of us have made similar mistakes at that age and hopefully learnt from them There are also typical characters you will recognize with a smile, since you might have encountered them in real life kindly Gupta uncle the boys mentor, the shady, undesirable from the parents point of view friend Fakira and the antagonistic teachers, balanced fortunately by the understanding ones.Simply written, without any literary gimmickry this is certainly a true slice of life book The impact would have probably been greater if Aakash s point of view had beensharply delineated All the same, Champs of Devgarh fills an important need It is the kind of book that will attract even boys who are reluctant readers

    The book is written in a simple language, which reflects that author wants to cater to young sports esp cricket loving youth.The book picks up pace slowly It has numerous incidents which depict the life of common man and problems faced by them It seems the book is not marketed well, as very less of promotion is done for the book which might be the reason for less popularity of the book.Nevertheless, it is a good book to read and would remind you of your childhood.

    Aditya Sharma s Champs of Devgarh took me back to Ruskin Bonds Road to the Bazaar It had a similar earthiness to it, replete with small town characters with simple aspirations The book is a pleasant read and gives you an enjoyable insight into the lives of the boys who form the Star 11 cricket team, the underdogs of the cricketing circuit of Devgarh who fight the odds to become cricketing heroes in their small town A must read especially for cricket lovers.


  8. Sabina Sabina says:

    The book maintains its pace throughout not just in the story topic but the way the story was narrated The plot of the story is good I would say it s a must read for the readers who want to relive their teen life I am really looking forward to reading other books by Aditya.
