(The True Story of Child Abuse Continued) - Child Abuse True Stories deftly handles the subject without romanticizing it a greateal However considering that the gangster s life story isn t a lot spectacular it really isn t much of a page turner until the final few chapters It is only with incredulity that you can read the last few chapters of what eventually became of Abu Salem and Monica Bedi The eventual fate of the man who has perpetrated so many crimes and of his accomplice is something that will make you sit back and think as to what happens when the law enforcement agencies are unable to prove a case beyond reasonable Mobilizing Islam doubtWorth reading as a companion volume to Black Friday and Dongri To Dubai As a standalone volume it really isn t great from the content standpoint Coming from India s No 1 Crime Writer this is a true account of one of the mostreaded Mumbai gangsters Painstakingly researched the book is a great. Te telling of his life from the writer who knows the Mumbai underworld better than anyone else Gripping full of unknown etails and first hand accounts My Name is Abu Salem is another unputdownable book from Hussain Zaid. .
SUMMARY My Name is Abu Salem.
Hussain Zaidi like we all know a brilliant writer HE makes crime fiction look so interesting The book narrates the story of Abu Salem and the recod of his crimes and love affairsThe most interesting chapter was about his first wife s revenge and the entry of Monica Bedi Sad that she idn t o the interview but without that as well the write got enough ope on their relationship However it would have been interesting to see some pictures of the infamous manThe book is engaging and you will just not feel like keeping it own Mind blowing superb Awesomeare the only words that come to my mind
After Reading This Book The Word Unputdownable In The Blurbreading this book The word unputdownable in the blurb perfect for this book This man is simply awesome and that I realised once again the moment I sat to write this review When I saw the book had been tagged as non fiction is when I was like No this seemed like some amazing movie so captivating and engrossingRead the full review here I like Hussain Zaidi s books He writes on people we are all curious about the hard core criminals of the country I finished this book in a few hours since I spent uite a lot of time at the airport and on the flight this weekendThis book tracks the life of Abu Salem from birth till now It s a fascinating read because Hussain gives etails like how Abu thinks he is as good looking as a star and is looking for fame It also focuses on his wives and the relationship with Monica Bedi without entering the gossip territory So no there is nothing about Monica and Rahul Mahajan because that is not relevant to Abu s storyThe end is scary because Abu is still in prison but his chances of going scot free have improved since Saba took over his case And all because the Indian government has made so many blunders All in all a good book and worth reading A book by Mr Zaidi is impossible to ignore and kept aside for few hours once you start reading it at least for me I had all my hopes up when I started with the book and in my excitement I would have finished the book in two Tyral (Mated to the Alien, days but the curiosity about various characters and incidences in the book kept me busy searching and reading about them before I went ahead with next chapterI am Abu Salem is another book in the series about Mumbai Mafia by S Hussain Zaidi first being Dongri to Dubai I am ready to confess that by the time I finished the book I felt mature to actually understand the reason for missingetails wherever they were in the book and to not get annoyed with the author I am a fan of his writing and crime investigationsThis book is about the man named Abu Salem and his journey from a poor mechanic to a handsome Knocked Up by a Thug dangerous mafiaon The story makes its reader have a rendezvous with the life of this African or American?: Black Identity and Political Activism in New York City, 1784-1861 don and his way of working the terror he loved and the innocence he feel towards himself This story is about a womanizer and highly vainglorious man who thought he looks even better than Salman Khan and who tillate The Logic of Self-Destruction dreams of getting his life made into a super hit film Today while fighting his cases and as his lawyers help him get acuitted and extradited from India he wishes to enter politics Thisoes scare me and get frustrated of what kind of a system we have and what our future would be Abu Salem is an under educated man with good looks and even sharper mind with Around the Sacred Fire: Native Religious Activism in the Red Power Era decent family background His father was a lawyer and aftereath of his father his mother tried hard to make ends meet and teach her children etiuette and make good healthy and humble persons out of them But fate had something else in store Seeing the struggle that his family was going through he ran away from Azamgarth to Delhi indulging in some small time business and then to Mumbai in search of settling The Alchemy of Opposites down and earn good moneySalem s uest for uick money and fame also cohabited his enormous lust He had a forced marriage that failed which he refuses to acknowledge and his tumultuous love story with Sameera Jumani culminating in marriage He turns out to be a megalomaniac and narcissist to the core by the time he is in love with Monica Bedi Introduction andetails of his initiation into petty crimes setting up of extortion rackets to moving to Dubai to trying hands at kidnapping has been well written in the book One of the plus of the author s writing is that nowhere in the book he seems to be sympathetic or aggressive towards Abu Salem rather he just concentrated on stating facts as far as he could and let reader Holy Crap The World is Ending The Anunnaki Chronicles decide how they want to feel about theonAt many places in the book I felt Mr Zaidi is just telling the incidences as story and putting irrelevant information such as about Dawood or Sanjay Dutt and while reading I had my grudges accumulating for. Mumbai has produced many Stand and Deliver: Political Activism, Leadership, and Hip Hop Culture dons but perhaps none so colourful as Abu Salem The flamboyant ex aide of Dawood Ibrahim is best known for his involvement in the Mumbai blasts of 1993 and for the murder of music composer Gulsha. The author for not writing the reality and completeetails
About Any Incidence Wherever Iany incidence Wherever I annoyed by chance I fell on a name which kind of raised curiosity such as Vicky Goswami Romesh Sharma Dewani the two navy jail associates of Salem I searched on Internet about these people and tumbled upon so The Wrong Complexion for Protection dreadfuletails about them that I felt angry frustrated A Black Woman's Civil War Memoirs: Reminiscences of My Life in Camp With the 33rd U.S. Colored Troops, Late 1st South Carolina Volunteers dying to know The story recitation is so beautiful that it leaves me with aesire to try attend a court hearing of Abu Salem and hear him talk and smile the book had Abu Salem so live in front of me And as I read and about Abu
and the latest news about court orders the book I understood the reason why it was ifficult for the author to actually state the facts in etails By the time I finished this book I am sure I have knowledge about the crimes mafia related Children of the Sun details and other incidences that happened around me but I wasn t aware of themThere is nooubt that Mr Zaidi is one of the best crime non fiction writer who has a way to put Approaches To Academic Reading And Writing down horrendous mafia relatedetails in a curious and exciting way where the reader Living with Lynching: African American Lynching Plays, Performance, and Citizenship, 1890-1930 doesn t scream with fear rather with excitement I just wish he had liberty to shareetails and incidences that he had to omit Witch-Hunt Narrative due to legal and other miscellaneous reasonsMy all well wishes to him to win any court cases against his books and be safe and keepelivering us with mouthwatering and brain numbing stories about India and its fatty well fed criminals I was gifted this book by a complete stranger someone who had no idea of my taste in literature But being the sort who will conscientiously at least try to read anything that comes my way I My Hero Academia Series Volume 1 - 20 Books Collection Set by Kouhei Horikoshi decided to give My Name is Abu Salem a try Not that organized crime interests me Not that I follow crime news very carefully or knew anything about Abu Salem except that he was one of the most wanted Indian criminals in recent times Not that I find the sleaze of 90s Hindi cinema both onscreen and off at all fascinating Despite that I found S Hussain Zaidi s biography of Abu Salem a thoroughly engrossing read Using a very varied collection of sources including Salem s autobiography which two cellmates of his translated and transcribed in English for the mafioso an interview with Salem s ex wife various interviews with a range of people Salem of course one of them etc Zaidi weaves an interesting story of the rise and fall of a criminal From Abu Salem s early life as the second son of a lawyer in Azamgarh to his coming to Mumbai and falling in with Dawood Ibrahim s D Company to hisealings with Bollywood especially Sanjay Dutt to his stranglehold over big business to his escape from India and his extradition back from Portugal Zaidi covers it all I ll admit this was a book that surprised me It wasn t something I Alcohol Addiction Recovery d thought I find enthralling but it was Partly because Zaidi s style of writing is good informative chatty with the odd Mars Journey detail here and there that lends a greater insight into how the underworld functions for instance he busts some Bollywood propagated myths about the underworld which I found interesting Partly because his subject is so interesting so larger than life If there s one thing I liked to have seen of itsalem and the latest news about court orders
