Karan Bajaj's debut novel reminds me a lot of Chetan Bhagat's first work, perhaps because of the similarity in milieu- IIT and IIM. Karan Bajaj is an IIM alumnus, and so this does seem a bit autobiographical. Well, even if its not, its definitely introspective, and is at its root, a person's search for himself.
Samrat Ratan is the protagonist, who takes a break from his hotshot investment banking life on Wall Street, and gets into IIM-Bangalore. Its an interesting book, if not spectacular, and is definitely worth a read, if only for the analytic construction of the final lesson ' happiness is about being comfortable in your own skin.... living a life of your own, and not an imitation of someone else's reality'
Of course, even that is only a perspective, but it happens to be one I agree with :)
