  13. 13. COMMENT Content: The Three Mistakes of my Life’ is a story well told. Book has many interesting settings and situation. Language: This book is written simply and has the quality that makes one want to read the book cover to cover in one sitting.
  14. 14. Other: None of reason for saving Ali are based on the fact that he's a Muslim, or they save Ali out of any moral obligation apart from the fact that he is a potential cricketing great. Chetan's notions of nationalism and patriotism are just too immature and simplistic.
  15. 15. CONCLUSION Many times our dreams crash into pieces by unexpected events but with support from people around, we can get back on track, focus and rebuild our dreams. Life will have many setbacks. People close to you will hurt you. But you don’t break it off. You don’t hurt them more. You try to heal it.
