Ballad of Bapu is an intelligently crafted book with the biography of Bapu written in verses. A thing very unique to this work is that it covers the life of Bapu while staying in verses, provides a detailed description of events and also touches the emotional aspects of Bapu's life. It is what can rightly be called as 'great work in few words'. I am not a history fan, 2 paragraphs of a history book and one can find me sleeping. But 'Ballad of Bapu' is such a beautiful poetic work that I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. 

Another noteworthy thing is the use of pictures from Bapu's life. One can easily connect to those times and life that Bapu had lived, what he looked like, how he dressed, who were his family etc.. Altogether It enhances the visual and mental perception of an expressed emotion. And when that happens, one can literally travel back in time and imagine as well as feel the very scenario. 

Third remarkable thing about this book is that it is written very intelligently. The author has studied the life of Bapu in detail and presents it from both narrative and analytical point of view.  It also presents the emotional and personal ups and downs in Bapu's life and how the people around him had influenced various aspects of his life. 

The cover of the book is catchy and a simple yet beautifully designed. 
I super loved Balld Of Bapu.

Rating:  5/5
