In our country cricket is the most popular game. Looking at the fame and accolades the cricketers get, one may feels as if no other game is played here.
On this background Madhavi Kunte and Mahesh Limaye have introduced us to an entirely different adventure sport. The achievements of Shruti Limaye in long distance swimming are astounding to read. A detailed narration in this book about her Guru Aarti Pradhan, her training methods, whole hearted support from family members, limitless efforts put in by Shruti surprises us. Up till now she has conquered straits of Dharamtar and Uran, English Channel, straight of Gibraltar, Santa Barbara channel. The experience of this long term swimming, obstacles in the way, loss of breath and stamina, encouragement from her colleagues etc. has been aptly described.
The historic jump of Swatantryveer Savarkar near Marseilles port is a milestone event in our history. A competition was arranged to celebrate the 100th anniversary of this historical event. Shruti took part in the same and won the medal. This achievement makes us proud.
At the end of the book some instructions and tips are given to the aspirants who wish to take up this adventure sport as a hobby or career. Having read this book it is expected that at least few youngsters would enter in this field.
