Hussain Zaidi – Dongri to Dubai is the first ever attempt to chronicle the history of the Mumbai mafia It is the story of notorious Dongri to Dubai is the first ever attempt to chronicle the history of the Mumbai mafia It is the story of notorious gangsters like Haji Mastan Karim Lala Varadarajan Mudaliar Chhota Rajan Abu Salem but above all it is the story of a young man who went astray despite having a father in the police force Dawood Ibrahim was initiated into crime as a pawn in the hands I have always been pretty eager to read about the Mumbai Underworld and S Hussain Zaidi has somehow helped me alot in uenching my thirst about the mumabi mafia through his earlier books Black Friday and The Mafia ueens of Mumbai I picked up 'Dongri to Dubai' with lots of hopethinking that it is going to be a great seuel to the Mumbai Mafia trilogysadly the I found the book below my expectation levels and here are the reasons for that 1 The book is repetitive at uite a number of instances Same paragraphs are repeated than onceIt feels uite irritating if you have to read the same paragraph which has appeared two pages earlier2 Some of the anecdotes used in this book are already mentioned in 'The Mafia ueens of Mumbai' Someone who has read that book wouuld very easily find this out3 Most importantly I found that Mr Zaidi has tried pretty hard to portray Dawood Ibrahim as a larger than life character Glorification of crime can be disastrous in the long term and the gullible youth can find an inspiration to venture into the wrong path after reading such unnecessary portrayals of someone who is a dreaded criminal4 Mr Zaidi has tried to portray Dawood as a Muslim don by dividng the mumbai mafia on communal lines Reading the book I felt that Mr Zaidi is trying to convey that Muslim Mafia is far better organized eipped and efficient than the Hindu Mafia For me crime and criminals have no religion so such divisions along communal lines are uncalled for I am eagerly awaiting the fourth book of Mr Zaidi ie Headley and I and I sinceerely hope that the book will be a better effort than Dongri to DubaiRegardsSiddahrth

pdf à Dongri To Dubai ½ S. Hussain Zaidi

Alleged role in sheltering one of the most wanted persons in the world This story is primarily about how a boy from Dongri became a don in Dubai and captures his bravado focus ambition and lust for power in a gripping narrative The meticulously researched book provides an in depth and comprehensive account of the mafia’s games of supremacy and internecine warfar A book on the Mumbai Mafia was long overdueI just wish it hadn't come from Mr Zaidi He might be the undisputed king of crime reporting but a storyteller he is not The timelines are awry the characters are developed and scattered in a haphazard manner There are over fifty characters and hundreds are mentioned through the book tiring to say the least when there is almost always nothing memorable about them The dialogues sound like some cheesy b grade movie possibly due to the poor Hindimarathi to English translation The story does not progress in a fluid manner but choppy and interrupted like a bunch of news clippings glued togetherIt is disappointing to say the least because the meteoric rise of Dawood makes for stellar storytelling I guess with a story so good you can rarely go wrong But Mr Zaidi gives it his best shot I would still recommend this book but only till something better comes along Full marks for research though

S. Hussain Zaidi ½ Dongri To Dubai text

Dongri To DubaiOf the Mumbai police and went on to wipe out the competition and eventually became the Mumbai police’s own nemesisThe narrative encompasses several milestones in the history of crime in India from the rise of the Pathans formation of the Dawood gang the first ever supari mafia’s nefarious role in Bollywood Dawood’s move to Karachi and Pakistan’s subseuent This was my first read about mafia and while I was deeply interested in how Mumbai gave the mafia a chance to flourish I also noticed asking myself a crucial uestion freuently during the latter half of my read What should a nonfiction on mafia ideally convey? Should it be an “objective account” that boasts of not commenting on the ethics of mafiadom to present an “unbiased chronological account” of the phenomenon? Or should it be a critical venture where by exposing the murky machinery of the underworld the effects of criminal activities on society should also be commented upon along with an enuiry into the aspects which drew people to crime? Reflecting on the exciting information laden action packed narrative I have just read I find myself rooting for the latterA crime nonfiction especially one of this scale ought not to be solely about chronology; rather it should be a social inuiry into the nature of crime and criminals along with the socio economic and political machinations that allow crime to thriveMy experience with this book has been a heady one – for one I had only a vague idea about the six decades of mafia in Mumbai mostly through popular consensus some current affairs and a spate of unreliable Bollywood references on various forgotten gangsters I took up this book to see if I could link these all into a coherent view of the history of mafiaIn this respect the narrative succeeds – it deals with the beginnings of Mafia in Bombay right from the ‘50s when India had just freshly got her freedom from the British Some of the most commonly known and feared gangsters such as Haji Mastan Varadarajan Dawood Abu Salem Chhota Rajan Chhota Shakeel and Manya Surve – some of them have become legendary names while some of them have had their three hours of fame in celluloid Most of them have been entirely forgottenThe account is extremely interesting – it explores how economic policies and political scenarios unwittingly opened up avenues for gangs to flourish Eg the ban on liuorcontraband in the ‘50s allowed Mudaliar to tap the scope for producing hooch the neo liberation economic policy of the early ‘90s coupled with closing of many mills opened up the real estate to Dawood IbrahimAlthough it comprehensively covers all major gangsters it is Dawood centric and it mostly follows a chronological account of only that gang which Dawood was to first join and then take over later Since the cover explicitly depicts only Dawood it is to be expected that all roads lead to D CompanyFor beginners who have no idea about the details of the six decades of mafia it is a lovely book – chronicling the rise of mafia their operations the involvement of police at various stages apart from the usual politician lobbying There are anecdotes of how certain words came into mafia lingo cultural origins of Rampuri chaku a long foldable knife with sharp edges on one side first used by the Rampuri gang why a hit job is referred to as ‘supari’betel nut and a valorous man is referred to as ‘soorma’ eyelinerIt also depicts how changing political scenarios like the Emergency the enforcement of certain laws like MISA and TADA and the establishment of Indian Spy Agency RAW affected the fortunes of the mafiaThe latter part of the book concentrates on Dawood and his changing fortunes – and the fortunes of the people around him – Chhota Rajan Chhota Shakeel Abu Salem – as also the state of Bollywood when it got unwillingly embroiled with D CompanyA little light is shed on how the Liberation policy of 1991 which liberalized the economy showered riches on the mafia how communal riots the Babri Mosue demolition resulted into the 10 serial bomb blasts in Mumbai in 19935 stars for entertainment and informationBut 0 stars for everything elseWhat I cringe at is the tone of the text It is a glorifying account a romantic portrayal of the underworld – much similar to Bollywood movies like “Once Upon a Time in Mumbai” Don’t expect a “Satya” kind of serious sane and importantly just depictionEvery single paragaraph reeks of that uninhibited admiration for gangsters Maybe Zaidi is afraid of Dawood – because he fleetingly mentions every bold journalist being murdered by them It is a sort of glamorized smooth glib charming honeyed romantic account Instead of portraying the blood filth and dirt that mafia really is it is a sentimental account which is a gross inhuman injustice to the brave people who lost their lives to these ruffiansWorse the author is so keen on explaining to the readers that dear little Dawood had absolutely no hand in the blasts because he had only provided logistical support to the ISI and had only thought it would be used for the “pin and prick” terrorism in Kashmir but was innocently unaware of what ISI was planning Wow try telling me a notorious don had no idea what he was providing the logistics support forDawood and his cohorts are consistently depicted as “not really bad people” He doesn’t miss a chance to evoke empathy for him and his cohorts I feel neither sympathy for them nor pity I only find myself singeing in fury and helplessness These people were criminals not bloody victimsI’ll stop here lest I start cussing But suffice it to say the 3 stars are a big generosity given only for the chronological account that I didn’t know I give a full ZERO star for the intentions of the book
