How to Root Micromax A57 Ninja 3

Micromax A57 aka Micromax Ninja 3, is one of the rarest (maybe THE rarest) phones that pack a 1 GHz horsepower beneath the beautiful package at an astonishingly low price of INR 4,800. Unlike Micromax A52, other specs packed in the Ninja device are also decent which includes an HVGA 3.5" capacitive screen with a 3 MP camera. So, I shall surely prefer this one over the pixelated A52. The value for money factor of this device is so overwhelming, that if I have to write any article regarding budget smartphones, this one will win the "Best Budget Android" award, without any doubt.
