Broken Crayons Can Still Colour: A Soldier and a FighterBroken Crayons Can Still Colour: A Soldier and a Fighter by Captain Rakesh Walia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Life is harsh and not everyone is born with a silver spoon in mouth. Most people end up surrendering to the circumstances and keep living the pathetic life. Some brave hearts rise above all challenges and come out at top. This is the autobiography of one such brave heart, Captain Rakesh Walia.

Rakesh loses his parents in an accident at a very young age. Then after spending his childhood with indifferent relatives he starts working in factories. But he has a dream of becoming and officer in Indian Army. He keeps studying along with his day jobs, worked on his English and eventually joined Indian army as an officer.

The story is inspiring, motivating and gives hope to the less fortunate. The story is testimony to the fact that there is no hurdle in the world which can not be overcome with sheer will and hard work. Human will can move mountains and took humankind to the moon and beyond.

Recommendation and rating
