A refreshing tale for Indian youth.Set in the IIT campus, the story effectively portrays the pressure ,students are subjected to, in reputed educational institutions.The easy - read school boy grammar employed by the author has won him many fans around the country.The college atmosphere, the thick friendship between the three main characters, their different attempts to get rid of the pressure and enjoy college life, the so - called professor's likeness to assignments are all beautifully written and almost all age groups can relate this story to their lives at one point or the other.

The author has managed to cover each and everyone and has made Indians read like never - before.However his easy narration has come under criticism for diluting the standards of books but at the end its winning readers' hearts that matters and I would say Chetan has done that quite well.
