Sunny Days is the fascinating record of the growth of India's greatest batsman, one whose astonishing feats on the cricket field have had innumerable records rewritten and yet more difficult targets set. How did Sunil Manohar Gavaskar begin, and what were the early days like? It is not merely out of curiosity that one may ask the question; the knowledge of the shaping up of the process of greatness is essential for a true understanding of the greatness. Before we can ask the Little Master to tell us about the dizzying heights of his career, we need to know the beginning. And Sunny Days is all about it.

The story starts with a baby being switched after birth - luckily restored by an eagle-eyed uncle; he grows up to almost break his mother's nose with a mighty hit (a childhood habit that persists in later life); plays good cricket in school and college; inevitably graduates beyond university and trophy cricket; is occasionally booed by the crowd, as his uncle happens to be a selector; and then bursts into the international cricket scene with his test debut at Port of Spain at the age of 21.
