I totally agree. Definitely more hard-thought-inducing than Chetan Bhagat and for me, certainly more entertaining.
But well! Thats just my opinion. Anyway, a darker , a mroe satirical take on elite campus life as compared to many other contemporary,similar and concomitant works by ivy-bschool-league Indian authors. The last reason is the only factor influencing a rating-drop from a potential 4 pointer to a 3 pointer Its not about the destination but the journey. I purchased this book when I was very new to this Online sites where we can get books on heavy discounts.
Since 3 years, this book has been on my shelf and finally, I picked this pages of a wonderful odyssey and took 2 whole days to complete it. I could have finished this in hours straight but the book is so amazing that I preferred taking breaks, digesting the wonderful story and then continuing ahead.
And this has really paid off. I am done reading "Keep off the grass" by Karan Bajaj. I will always remember this book somewhere in the background of my mind whenever a dilemma would come in life regarding the selection of my happiness or the race to build lots of money, position in some firm and other materialistic satisfaction.
This book is by Harper Collins, the publisher whom I think I have never tried before. I think I should give them more chance because only then I will get to read more wonderful stories like this one.
His travel adventures have greatly motivated him to write. Following the success of his debut novel, his second novel titled Johnny Gone Down came out in the year Both his books have together sold over two lakh copies in India itself. After completing his engineering from Birla Institute of Technology, Ranchi, in , Bajaj went on to graduate from the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore in He has been given awards for his professional endeavours too.
A Yale graduate who makes half a million every year as an investment banker at Wall Street, Samrat Ratan chooses to return to India to discover his roots,happiness, and everything else that seems elusive. Contrary to the person he was before he enrolled himself into IIM-Bangalore, his grades and self-esteem fall as he gets high on marijuana frequently.
His life becomes nothing less than a roller-coaster ride thereon. Samrat remains perpetually stoned and experiences bizarre adventures, including sharing a smoke with and being almost consumed by flesh-eating Aghori saints on the banks of the river Ganges in Benares, meditating on the foothills of the mighty Himalayas, and indulging in a one-night stand with a Danish hippie in Dharamshala.
The film rights of the book have been sold to Mosaic Media Group, and Ben Rekhi has been signed up as the director for it. Coming to the author, the above paragraph itself tells how class a story-teller he is. Recently, I saw his pictures on Internet where he captioned how he went to travel to Himalayas with his foreigner girlfriend and got married there. He, his girlfriend were the only two people present in this certain-kms-above-sea-level marriage.
In the initial paragraphs itself, you get an idea that you are going to read something that shall remain with you for a long time in life.
