Book Name in Malayalam : The Sanjay Story. praise for Lucknow Boy
'Vinod Mehta's generous vision and keen curiosity effortlessly turns personal history into social and cultural history. One of those books that ought to be savoured rather than quickly swallowed. A wonderful memoir.'
'I very much enjoyed reading Lucknow Boy, and in particular the parts on London and Lucknow- so evocative.'
'Vinod Mehta is an engaging raconteur, full of a fund of well-told remembrances recounted with bounding good humour... never tarrying at a single story too long, flitting along from one memorable tale to another, evoking in a minimum of words a maximum of ethos, telling it as it was with little or nothing held back.'
-Mani Shankar Aiyar in Tehelka
'...his autobiography is more readable than that of any other Indian, largely because Indian tend to praise themselves and thus become unreadable, while Vinod, despite his many achievements in Indian journalism, remains modest and mocks himself.'
-Khushwant Singh in The Hindustan Times
'In his charming memoir... Vinod Mehta writes of the leisurely pace of life in his home town... Mehta believes that... his "secularism was deeply personal". because it was learned through life. not academic instruction... His experience resonates with mine.'
