This Author is my favorite one. I have been reading his boks from a long time. I like the way he presented the real life stories and created the real image in the readers mind in such a deep extent that reader feels as he/she is leaving the story not reading the story. He used to pick the social problems of the time that still set an example for the people of this time too.
