Lot of hue
and cry over this book, written by Chetan Bhagat. One saying fits Mr.Bhagat
perfectly-“Love him, hate him but you cannot ignore him.” He is a master
marketer and publicist, that’s the key reasons, his books make all kind of
noise. I am yet to comprehend, whether he is a bad writer, he knowingly insults
his audience or all this is his natural self.
One thing is
for sure, he hasn’t seen brains in Punjabi community. The way he makes fun of
Punjabi families, women folk, is racist. Honestly such madness cannot be
expected from so called IIT-IIM guy. Probably he is yet to meet intellectual
This book of
his is full of masala, like his previous books. He again went overboard, with
few things in this book. We all come across various difficulties, in our
professional life. But the protagonist, somehow is difficulty proof, where her professional
life is concerned. She is doing so well professionally, that whenever she faces
relationship failure, her bosses are happy to transfer her across the globe,
but are not ready to let her go. This seems bit outstretched, as in real life,
bosses are not there for baby sitting.
Mehta is a nerd, who has severe issue with her looks and personality. After
IIM, she comes to New York and join Goldman Sachs. She meet Debashish Sen, who
seem like a nice guy and relationship
develops. But somehow the guy, is not able to handle the success of Radhika,
moreover he does not consider her a mother material, so he leaves her high and
dry. Unable to cope the relationship failure, she moves to Hong Kong, where she
meet Neel Gupta, her boss’s boss. Soon love flows between them, but when
Radhika asks for stable future, the guy can offer none. She leave the country
and move to London, where she agrees for an arranged marriage with Brijesh
Gulati. What happens next, this needs to be read.
opinion, book is not that bad, it is good one time read. Please approach the
book, like you will approach Govinda’s movies, put logic behind. And girls out
there, don’t get into any false illusion, where jobs are concerned, jobs are
not as rosy as Mr.Bhagat has portrayed.
