    Finally finished this 537 page saga. Ram Jethmalani certainly is a bigger than life personality. He is controversial, compassionate, genius and emotional human being. A complex personality who makes his own path and defies the trodden path. Well, I will say that he is living a fulfilling life.

    I lack words for this book. What a man ! And what a read ! Such a gripping read and the giant life he has lived. There won’t be / there cannot be ever another Ram Jethmalani in the history of India.

Ram Jethmalani have been involved in all the matters and issues that India faced post independence, may it be Partition , Emergency , LTTE and Sri lanka , insurgency in Punjab , Kashmir , reservations, black money , 2G scams, and many. Further Ram Jethmalani never shy away from opposing anything which he thought, he should oppose. He is fearless and powerful and not scared to talk against anyone.. Unarguably after Nanabhoy Palkhivala, the other finest Advocate India ever produced. The living law legend. I won't disclose more, this is exciting read and you won't regret to spend on it. Yes you may repent for not reading this earlier. After reading, you will agree with Susan Adelman's notion, Ram -The Rebel.

    The title is very apt for this iconic personality who was also an iconoclast. Extremely courageous bordering towards foolhardiness, highly intelligent and diligent, Ram Jethmalani comes across as an epitome of multiskilled genius. He still leads a colourful life. One can either love him or hate him but never ignore him. A fittingly large biography on this larger than life personality who was and still in the news for both right and wrong reasons. But he would be the last one to care about it! A The title is very apt for this iconic personality who was also an iconoclast.
