About the Author

Born in 1932 in undivided India, Milkha Singh joined the army in 1951. Arguably, India s best male athlete, he received the Padma Shri at the height of his career in 1958. Although he stopped participating in competitive events in the early 1960s, he has dedicated his life to sports. He retired as Director of Sports and Youth Programme, Punjab Government, in 1991.

He established the Milkha Charitable Trust in 2003 in Chandigarh to help poor and needy sportspersons and their families. The Farhan Akhtar-starrer, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, is a biographical film about Milkha Singh s early life and career.

Book's not bad, great story telling but sort of amateurish. End of the book focuses on his personally agenda with advancing sport in India which isn't as interesting as his first hand account of his life story.

A very well written and narrated composition. More young ones should read about the struggles of this great man. Good work.

The legend, Milkha Singh, writes his story in the most simplistic fashion. It's an easy read and an inspirational narrative. He portrays the importance of setting realistic but ambitious goals at different stages of his life and directs all his focus on achieving these goals one-by-one. There are instances where I felt he was being hypocritical, but on reading further, understood his reasons behind those actions. Overall, India needs more people like him to change the face of it's dismal sports record as it stands today.
