    MOBI songuarachando.co.uk ó Selection Day MOBI µ selection download, Selection Day PDF/EPUBFrom the slums of Mumbai a father strongly encourages his two sons to excel at cricket and become selected for the teamAravind puts the reader in the picture about modern day life in India and you get the feel of Mumbai with the contrasts between the slums and the flash wealthy parts I enjoyed the local colour and the reflections of the father who had moved from a rural Indian village to the vibrant city of MumbaiBut this story is a drag and very ordinary It has your usual hopes of the father sibling rivalry between two brothers the challenges of teenage years growing up finding your way into adulthood and your sexuality Yes folks I found Selection Day to be regular soap opera fodder Think EastEnders moves to Mumbai to see the relatives on an extended holiday Don’t be put off by the boring sport of c
